### simple to create a app
//get application
var App = require('ti').application;

//definne product path;
var productPath = process.cwd();

var app = new App({
    //configure controller path
    controllerPath:productPath+"/controller",
    //configure default controller name
    defaultController:'site',
    //route config
    routes:{

//path:model/product.js
//demo for product
module.exports = {
    getItem:function(id){

        return {
            id:id,
            title:"Demo for product",

//path: controller/product.js

var Controller = require('ti').Controller;
//exports
module.exports = new Controller({
    detailAction:function(req,res){
        var id = req.params.id,
            productModel = require('model/product'),
            item = productModel.getItem(id);

        this.display('test.tpl',item);
    }        
});

You can modify it like this:

var template = require('ti').template;

template.openTag = "<{" ; // You custom openTag put here. template.closeTag = "}>" ;// You custom closeTag put here.

include a tpl

<%=include('a.tpl',data)%>

template plugin:

var template = require('ti').template;
//define a template plugin
template.plugin('escape',function(str,type){
    //code for plugin
    //need return what u want;
    return str;
});
//use a plugin in xxx.tpl

<p><%=title|escape:"html"%></h1>

some default plugin:

escape: escape tpl var for html or url :

default: set a default value for tpl var;

truncate: truncate tpl var ;

then,open browse and view: http://127.0.0.1:5927
