Using PHP Halt Compiler
<?php
/**
* The __halt_compiler() function will stop the PHP compiler when called.
* You can then use the __COMPILER_HALT_OFFSET__ constant to grab the contents of the PHP file after the halt.
* In this example a PHP template is stored after the halt, to allow simple separation of logic from templating.
* The template is stored in a temporary file so it can be included and parsed.
*
* See: https://github.com/bobthecow/mustache.php/blob/dev/src/Mustache/Loader/InlineLoader.php
* http://php.net/manual/en/function.halt-compiler.php
