Working with ruby on rails I’ve come to love the slim templating language.
I have been able to use this with Enonic XP instead of thymeleaf, but it’s a bit slower. Say 200 times.
Perhaps someone at Enonic has better knowledge about where to hook the slm template engine into Enonic, so it can run faster. I just ran it as part of a parts controller code.
When working on a layout I stripped away everything but the component paths from the regions, which works fine when mode != ‘edit’, but fails in content studio component view. In another task I tried manipulating the component name and type on both layout and page level, which did nothing. So it seems to me Enonic XP is doing something fancy behind the scenes. That thymeleaf and Enonic XP is hooked together somehow. That things are not like rails engines which are sort of “blackboxes” in a chain. What if I wanted to run some engine before or after thymeleaf, etc…
Please discuss around this topic.
