This module took me months to get my head around. Damn happy I stuck with it, each EE site is just beautifully coded! Mark’s also incredibly helpful making it that much easier to embrace it.

Best module ever! I get sad when I look at EE projects and see they don’t make use of stash. How did we ever manage without stash? This plugin is guaranteed to make your templating 100% more efficient and awesome.

Stash changes the way you develop websites with EE. It extends the possibilities of the system and brings a significant boost to performance by reducing the number of embeds, all of this for free.

On top of being a very talented developer, Mark somehow finds the time to provide top notch support.

I have been using EE for some time and I dont know why I am only now finding this. This makes the impossible > possible and the PITA > simple. So many new possibilities with this plus great performance enhancement.

Stash makes me smile, such a an incredible gift (thanks Mark!) The possibilities just are amazing, everything to do with coding templates is so much more simple with Stash! I can’t imagine building an EE site without it now!

Stash is absolutely amazing. It’s an essential add-on for every installation. I can’t imagine going back to using multiple embeds. Stash makes everything work better, and it’s free! Mark is an awesome developer.

Stash quite literally changes how I build sites with EE. Things I used to have to do by enabling PHP or using extra channel: entries loops and embeds I can do very simply by “stashing” things with almost no extra overhead.

I won’t build another site without Stash; it’s a default add-on for me.

The development strategies that Stash allows for make EE scale, more modular, and an even better choice for heavy-duty web app projects.

Mark could have charged a fair sum for this plugin.  That he gave it away and still provides such excellent support is a true gift to the community.

This is a truly amazing add-on, which makes development and maintenance of a site much, much easier.

Stash is a top-notch add-on that helps make even more things easily possible within EE templates. It works in simple scenarios but also makes complex needs accessible with just 1 add-on. Love this add-on!

I had a crazy idea on how I’d execute a snippet of javacode and move it around back to the javascript itself. I really didn’t think there was a plugin who could solve it, but Stash was a perfect match!

Fantastic! With one tiny change it would suit a great deal of additional use cases: refresh = [int] being measured in SECONDS instead of minutes ...

Stash does the most of any third-party add-on I know to make ExpressionEngine templates more of a programming environment. And Mark is dedicated to constantly improving it.

If you are looking for a dry approach using template partials, there is no beating stash. I have started using it with switchee and it works really well.

A fantastic plugin to support the “partials” approach. Extra bonus points for building Switchee support (or visa versa I should say). Combined these are a powerful combo. Thanks Mark!
