PHP is the most frequently requested skill on Elance, among the over 35,000 projects posted every month. Not only do clients request it but we use PHP extensively on the Elance site. About six months ago we started converting some pages from using ETS to Smarty 3 and we have seen up to 30% improvements in the time it takes to create those pages. We will continue to convert more pages as the benefits are real and easy to measure. We expect our site to be fast and responsive, as does our community, and switching to Smarty 3 is helping us reach the performance levels we demand.
Thank you Smarty!

Showcase: Develop your apps using Smarty 3 and PhpStorm Dec 21, 2010
Alexey from JetBrains says:
Smarty Support has been included in PhpStorm from the very beginning, and now its latest version also brings its users Smarty 3 power.
Another very useful feature is the Structure view where you can overview and navigate through your template structure, which is especially handy for large and complex templates. Code folding/unfolding also makes working with big templates user-friendly.

Showcase: Dragon Venue uses Smarty 3 Dec 15, 2010
Jernej from Dragon Venue says:
DRAGON Venue is an advanced ticketing, booking and marketing software for Sports, Arts & Culture and General Admission events & attractions. Internet Web kiosk is an integral part of today's ticketing solutions. It's used for selling tickets, ticket packages, memberships, gift cards, etc. DRAGON Venue web kiosks based on Smarty template engine make about 400.000 transactions per year. This is close to 1 million tickets sold per year. With Smarty internal cache we are able to process large number of requests in very short time.
We have started using Smarty about 2 years ago because customers were looking for personalized graphic design and multi-language functionality of their web kiosks. With Smarty we can offer every client their own personalized web ticketing kiosk and still be able to maintain and upgrade the system even with large number of customers. Smarty is also used for self-service kiosk solutions (ticketing robots). We have now upgraded almost all of our clients to Smarty 3. The web kiosk is now much faster. The system is used in Slovenia, Croatia and UK.
Thank you Smarty, for making our life easier!

Showcase: Trovit uses Smarty 3 Dec 13, 2010
Christian from Trovit says:
Trovit is an international classifieds search engine based in Barcelona, Spain, which is present in 20 countries around the world. With four verticals (homes, cars, jobs and products) it aggregates content from nearly 10,000 sites around the web and enables its users to find what they're looking for quickly and easily.
Trovit has been using Smarty for over four years. We're currently using version 2 and we're in the process of swapping to version 3. It's used intensively in all of the pages of Trovit's site, even in the internal backoffice! We employ Smarty functionalities like caching and internationalization, with lang files in 20 different languages or localizations.
We can't wait to test the new Smarty 3 features in our production environment, especially to take advantage of perfomance improvements.
Here are some stats:

* 20 languages
* 30 custom-made plugins
* over 150M pageviews per month

Showcase: Ipernity uses Smarty 3 Dec 8, 2010
Christophe from Ipernity says:
ipernity.com is a service that helps people store and share photos, videos and much more with their friends and family. It's used by photographers, group of friends and families. And it's worldwide : ipernity is available in 13 languages, thanks to the possibilities and robustness of Smarty !
We've been using intensively Smarty for the last 3 years. The Smarty syntax influenced the way we develop our service, opening great opportunities in terms of features, robustness and... time savings!
More than just an html programming language, we use the Smarty features in the complex process of translating ipernity into 13 languages.
Moving to Smarty 3 is a bowl of fresh air for the team, bringing new strong features and making it possible to remove some old dirty hacks ;)
- 650 templates
- 100+ smarty modifiers, functions, filters ...
- 200+ person translation team for 19 languages = 650 * 19 : 12,350 smarty html files!
- 2 front-end developers only ;)
Thank You Smarty!
