Paper Abstract: customizing webpages in a shared or SaaS operating environment is a challenging task because users have different needs and expectations. One way to facilitate the customization process is to provide users with a template engine.  By using a template engine, variability points can be specified in the target document that will be replaced with the appropriate piece of information at run-time.

The paper presents NitroScript, a new PHP template engine. NitroScript is designed to be used in an eCommerce context, differing from other general purposes template engines such as Smarty. It enables retailers to customize their store’s pages easily, and the code generated by the NitroScript compiler is PHP bytecode, resulting in a performance boost over traditional template engines that rely on runtime interpretation.
