I suggest separating Volt template engine to be separated to an independent sister project. This has a lot of pros without any significant cons.

  • A lot of users think plain PHP is good enough in templates.
  • SPAs do not need a PHP template engine at all.
  • The development team can concentrate on core framework features.
  • Documentation/Issues become cleaner and more friendly
  • Vold can be considered to be used with other frameworks as well (Similar to Twig which is distriubted as an extension in addition to php code).
  • a templae engine neutral framework that can be easily be ingretated with any template engines seems more flexible and attractive.
