Subject Re: Proposal for FREEMARKER-84: More flexible handlig of missing templates
Date Sat, 17 Feb 2018 08:34:38 GMT
For a point of comparison, the python jinja2 template engine (widely used)
has an "include" directive that has an attribute named "ignore missing"
[1]. I also remember seeing similar behavior in other engines.

So I guess perhaps from a usability point of view this seems to be a
desired feature by users. However, I don't know what the impact in terms of
complexity would reflect in the code base.
