Michael Mahemoff is bullish on templating that runs all over the shop, and explained the progression in his Dual-Side Templating piece:
- c. 1995: Server-Side Templating. This is the standard templating used in Javaâ€™s JSP, Perlâ€™s Mason, PHP, ASP, etc. ie some html code with <?= â€œlanguageâ€ ?> code embedded in it.
- c. 2010: Dual-Side Templating A single template is used on both browser and server, to render content wherever itâ€™s appropriate – typically the server as the page loads and the browser as the app progresses. For example, blog comments. You output all existing comments from the server, using your server-side template. Then, when the user makes a new comment, you render a preview of it – and the final version – using browser-side templating.
