Template::TAL::Provider - Base class for TAL template providers
my $provider = $provider_class->new; my $ttt = $provider_class->get_template("foo");
TAL Templates come from Providers. You ask an instance of a provider for a template with a specific name, and it should return a Template::TAL::Template object to you for that template.
This module is the base class of all providers - it should be subclassed by developers who wish to write their own provider - for instance, to serve templates from a database.
The only method you need to implement is
get_template, which must return either a Template::TAL::Template object, or undef. If you want to do any module initialisation, override
new(). See Template::TAL::Provider::Disk for the simple provider that ships with Template::TAL.
creates a new provider
- get_template( template name )
Should return a Template::TAL::Template object with the given name, or die if there is no such template.
