in reply to Survey of Surveys on HTML Templating systems


Templating systems are very similar to text editors / IDEs. Almost everyone has one, and everyone has reasons why their own personal favorite is "the best". This inclination also tends to bias people against trying other systems when they already know how to use one that suits their purposes and preferences. The result is myopic entrenchment.

Consequently, an unbiased observer is not very likely to find a legitimate side-by-side comparison without a lot of hard work and fortitude not to be swayed by people's (sometimes ill-informed) opinions.

Good job, *definitely* update this as appropriate. This kind of 'neutral' evaluation is a definite (++).

Now, if you could do a similar analysis for text editors and IDEs and have a report up by tomorrow morning, that'd be great mm'kay? ;-)
