A blogger asked me "Do you know any professional benchmarks for templates?" So I made this one.
Now, this project is getting the attention of the international PHP developers community, which is divided
in two. One says PHP itself is the best template engine, the other says PHP needs template engines.
With these benchmark & charts you can compare the performances of template engines vs PHP templates, and make your choice.
This benchmark is performed by executing an assignment and a loop test. Each template engine is executed 10 times foreach single test. The test is executed on compiled template with cache disabled. The charts shows the average execution time and memory consumed for each test. Have fun.
