Limitations of the Drupal theme layer
Original session: Limitations of the Drupal theme layer
With the release of Drupal 6, phptemplate put a triumphant end to any alternative templating systems in Drupal. We've reached the holy grail of theming -- all that remains is to replace in-code theme() functions with preprocess hooks and churn out hundreds of template files, right?
Not so fast. In this session I will argue that the Drupal community needs to keep its eye on the ball -- true separation of data from presentation -- and argue why there is still more underlying work to be done.
