Hi all!

I must say I'm relatively new to Smarty since I just installed.
But I came across an issue that may be of interest to you guys as well.

When I was installing I noticed that Smarty has its workdir as '.' by default, and this is not configurable (without changing the code).

I would like to have my configuration setup in such a way that I use a separate folder out of my www folder for all Smarty related files.

So this is my structure:

var
..mysite
....www
......home.php
....app
......include
........smarty
..........Smarty.class.php
......smarty
........templates
........templates_c
........cache

My proposal is to add a constant called SMARTY_WORKDIR which is by default set to '.', and use it in the constructor instead of '.'.
This way people can set their Smarty work dir by overriding this variable.



TL;DR

When I was installing I noticed that Smarty has its workdir as '.' by default, and this is not configurable.

Solution: Add the constant SMARTY_WORKDIR:

in Smarty.class.php line 0:
Code:
if (!defined('SMARTY_WORKDIR')) {
    define('SMARTY_WORKDIR', '.' . DS);
}


in Smarty.class.php line 595:
Code:
$this->setTemplateDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'templates' . DS)
       ->setCompileDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'templates_c' . DS)
       ->setPluginsDir(SMARTY_PLUGINS_DIR)
       ->setCacheDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'cache' . DS)
       ->setConfigDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'configs' . DS);

It's not necessary to modiy the code.

Just call
Code:
$smary->setTemplateDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'templates' . DS)
       ->setCompileDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'templates_c' . DS)
       ->setPluginsDir(SMARTY_PLUGINS_DIR)
       ->setCacheDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'cache' . DS)
       ->setConfigDir(SMARTY_WORKDIR . DS . 'configs' . DS);


After you have created the $smarty object.

Ok, that's a good solution too. Thanks for bringing that up!
