Thanks to ido50, the Tenjin templating system is now available on
CPAN.

http://search.cpan.org/dist/Tenjin/

It looks like he's added a few improvements of his own, too.

I like Tenjin, because it's lightweight and fast. It may even be the
*fastest* templating engine available to a Perl programmer. The web
page on Tenjin by the original author has some informative benchmarks:

He has also made some nice presentations about Tenjin:

Check it out.

I wonder if that is the XS version of TT?

And personally, speed is my last concern when developing software.
Readability and clear logic are paramount, along with correctness.

Typically a program has a single bottleneck and only that needs to be fixed.

I am not gentoo-mentality speed freak :)

Also, Text::MicroTemplate is an extract from the Mojo web framework. I
wonder how fast that is. It compiles to Perl subs.

This seems overly ambitious. A bit to rigid on where control is for
producing the output HTML. I prefer full-strength languages available
for controlling HTML output, not code embedded in CSS (though Brock
might like that :)

Thanks for the benchmark. What tricks does Tenjin do to be so fast?
