New templating system for Android phone UI – concise, native and dynamic
Slate templates (beta) is a templating system for developing both Android and Windows phone native UIs using a modern templating system. It offers the following features:
1. concise syntax ( 40% - 60% smaller than xml )
2. similarity to html and css ( generating native controls )
3. cross platform
4. support for dynamically loading templates ( e.g. from your server )
It has separate engines for each platform – Android, Windows.

Download the sample app (slate_beta.zip) from the website and customize “slate_sample2.txt” in assets folder.
Using this templating engine, we have developed a beta version of Android app - Slate calendar.
Appreciate if you could try it out, suggest any specific missing features, and give any constructive feedback for the templating engine.
