Template::Plugin::HTML::Strip(3) HTML::Strip filter for Template Toolkit


[% USE HTML.Strip %]
[% FILTER html_strip %]
<title>People for the Preservation of Presentational Markup</title>
<h1>HTML::Strip - A cause for concern?</h1>
[% END %]
[% USE HTML.Strip 'strip'
striptags = [ 'script' 'iframe' ]
emit_spaces = 0
[% FILTER strip %]
<p>A call to arms against the removal of our elements!</p>
[% END %]


This module is a Template Toolkit dynamic filter, which uses HTML::Strip to remove markup (primarily HTML, but also SGML, XML, etc) from filtered content during template processing.

By default, the installed filter's name is 'html_strip'. This can be changed by specifying a new name as the first positional argument during plugin usage:

  [% USE HTML.Strip 'strip' %]
  [% '<div>Our very existence is under threat.</div>' | strip %]

The filter can optionally take configuration options, which will be passed to HTML::Strip's constructor method:

  [% USE HTML.Strip
      striptags   = [ 'applet' 'strong' ]
      emit_spaces = 0
  [% FILTER html_strip %]
  <strong>Are we next!?</strong>
  [% END %]

For more details on available configuration options, please refer to HTML::Strip.



Creates a dynamic filter and installs the filter under the value provided for the first positional argument, otherwise uses 'html_strip'.


Receives a reference to the plugin object, along with the text to be filtered and configuration options. Using HTML::Strip, returns the filtered (stripped) text.
