Skylark/WITH escape char[ 4 votes ]

Hi,

when designing witz templates, I have made a mistake, seduced by similiarity with Shell/PHP, I have used '$' as designation of code sections.

This has unfortunate consequence in name clash with Jquery.

Perhaps, in this still early stage of Skylark maturing, we could change this and use e.g. '@' instead. I would made support for '#' as option so that older code does not need to be fixed immediately.

What is your opinion?

Mirek

Hi Mirek,

I'm using $ and I like it Smile There is 352 dollar signs in Watchdog and none of them needed to be escaped. However, I don't use (and don't like Smile ) jquery. I understand that others might be in different situation.

The # and @ characters can have their own problems - # is used in CSS, and at can be present in javascript code handling emails or tweets... It would probably be less problematic than jquery, but still possibly problematic.

I'd like to suggest to make it configurable, it should be pretty easy. Skylark can be used to do much more than serving html web pages. Having the code designation configurable would make it possible for the programmer to choose what fits his scenario best.

Best regards,
Honza

I agree with Honza. If it is not a problem, please make it configurable.
