Self-closed form of <txp:if_...> tags

I sometimes use if_variable tag as 0/1 flag:

<txp:section link='<txp:if_variable name="link" value="yes">1<txp:else />0</txp:if_variable>' />

I suggest that we allow if_variable (and other if_ tags) be self-closed, so <txp:if_variable name="link" value="yes" /> returns 1 or 0. We could then write just

<txp:section link='<txp:if_variable name="link" value="yes" />' />

Looks logical to me.

@etc,

Did you cause this little weirdness with that commit?

Oups :-) Now works as expected.

I still need to wrap my around what new goodies those self closing <txp:_if… /> will bring to the table.
if you have time, a (long winded…) blogpost or so would be appreciated !

It’s just an easier-to-parse shortcut for <txp:if_tag>1</txp:if_tag>. For example

<txp:comments_invite textonly='<txp:if_comments_disallowed />' />

looks (and parses) better than

<txp:comments_invite textonly='<txp:if_comments_disallowed>1</txp:if_comments_disallowed>' />

And when we’ll have a universal core txp:not (say) attribute, this will be possible too:

<txp:section_list wraptag="ul" break="li">
    <txp:section title="1" link='<txp:if_section txp:not name=''<txp:section />'' />' />
</txp:section_list>
