// This code takes a template name and an array of variables
// and parses them with a file
// 
// Example:
//   print template('hello', array('who'=>'world'));
//
// Template (/templates/hello.html)
//   Hello !
// 
// Outputs:
//   Hello world!


define('DIR_TEMPLATES', dirname(__FILE__).'/templates');

function template($__name__, $__data__=array()) {

	ob_start();
	require(DIR_TEMPLATES.'/'.$__name__.'.html');
	return ob_get_clean();
