Persistant compile identifier. As an alternative to passing the same $compile_id to each and every function call, you can set this $compile_id and it will be used implicitly thereafter.

With a $compile_id you can work around the limitation that you cannot use the same $compile_dir for different $template_dirs. If you set a distinct $compile_id for each $template_dir then Smarty can tell the compiled templates apart by their $compile_id.

If you have for example a prefilter that localizes your templates (that is: translates language dependend parts) at compile time, then you could use the current language as $compile_id and you will get a set of compiled templates for each language you use.

Another application would be to use the same compile directory across multiple domains / multiple virtual hosts.

Example 12.6. $compile_id in a virtual host enviroment


$smarty->compile_id = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
$smarty->compile_dir = '/path/to/shared_compile_dir';
