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

L<Template::Caribou> is a L<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 L<Template::Declare>.

For a manual on how to use C<Template::Caribou>, have a peek at

When C<use>d within a namespace, C<Template::Caribou> will apply the role L<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 C<template> and C<attr> (the latter from
L<Template::Caribou::Tags>), as well as load L<Template::Caribou::Utils>.
