It looks like I just got a client that wants me to use Smarty Templates.

Why? Really is PHP not good enough... you gotta go ahead and invent a whole new syntax to learn? What is up with that? Too much time on your hands? Just want to prove how clever you are?

Ugh. Well, money is money and I am such a ho.

thanks for the laugh. there are plenty of resources to explain the benefits of Smarty. If you don't like it, talk your client into skipping it. If your client insists, maybe he should find a developer less cynical.

I would just say - if there weren't the needs, Smarty would not have come.
It is how you use it. You learned the syntaxes already does not mean that the client too should learn it.

Money paid to future maintenance can be used to develop well structured system now.
