#653 closed new feature (wontfix)

More flexibility in template plugins

Here is the problem of most frameworks : everything is closed to have more security. Means that all PHP functions are not represented in modifiers, plugins and so ...

There is then two possibilities :

  • Hacking the sources files wich means you can't update sources easily
  • Open your framework with a generic function that let you use all functions you want.

Here is the feature I propose :

# Make a new modifier like :

function jtpl_modifier_common_php( $string, $fonction, $args = '%s') {
        // Should be stopped if not activated in configuration file
	$tmp = "$result = $fonction(".sprintf($args, $string).');';
	return $result;

# You could use it like : {$myvar|php:"myfunction":"'myfirstarg', %s"}

This should be activable/deactivable in the configuration file : means if you find that it's a opened hole you can close it (if your designers aren't the same as coders, ... and if you don't want let them play with all PHP functions)

well... You forgot a third possibility : creating a dedicated modifier plugin (that you can put in your own plugin directory)

And "eval" function is very ugly in term of performance and security. Using call_user_func is better.

Sure, that's what I'm doing... But because I had this problem I tought other people have the same problem... That's why I'm asking to integer it inside the framework with the possibility to (de)active it in the configuration file.

But it's a "discussion" topic :) Just to know if there is a need or not :)
