WARNING: Codebase is alpha with extreme prejudice. Assume that bugs are teeming and that the API is subject to change.

Template::Caribou is a Moose-based, class-centric templating system mostly aimed at producing sgml-like outputs, mostly HTML, but also XML, SVG, etc. It is heavily inspired by Template::Declare.

For a manual on how to use Template::Caribou, have a peek at Template::Caribou::Manual.

When used within a namespace, Template::Caribou will apply the role Template::Caribou::Role to it (and auto-turn the namespace into Moose class if it wasn't a Moose class or role already), as well as import the keywords template and attr (the latter from Template::Caribou::Tags), as well as load Template::Caribou::Utils.
