To Smarty or not to Smarty

I’ve recently tried SmartyCMS
in order to improve my web effort. Although the first web 2.0 application I’ve built was with SmartyTemplates, SmartyCMS turned out to be a bit more complicated and clumsy CMS than I’d like, so I’ve decided to write my own CMS based on Smarty Templates (as it is really powerful template engine). I’ve even decided to make the extra step and further research more into template engines, because I’d like to have really strong foundation on which to build upon.

Today I’ve also researched more about HTML5, WebSockets (I think it is half-assed solution from what I’ve red, but I’d dig more into this the following days as it will be part of the future. I’d like to see some bi-directional client-server communication).
