I am the web developer for a small marketing company in the UK.

We recently won a tender to redesign a popular student accommodation site.

www.mainstaystudent.co.uk

I looked around for templating/caching engines and my research into them concluded that smarty was by far the best engine to use.

Well now the site has been up for 6 months and has had over 1 Million hits.

By tweaking the caching in smarty I am able to keep the site alive and fast all this time. (The site has alot of images so I needed to make sure the backend was not slowing it down).

I have used the following on mainstaystudent:

mysql for database storage
php5 for the application/business logic
smarty for the templating and caching
xhtml strict for the semantics
100% CSS (no tables Razz) for design and layout positioning
mootools for the javascript framework to add interactive ajax and animations

I want to just say that I am very happy with smarty and it is an invaluable tool for me.


Thanks to all the developers and contributers who made this sweet engine!
