A TPL file is a template written in the Smarty 3 templating language, which is similar to HTML. It is used by PrestaShop e-commerce software to generate the HTML of a webpage to customize e-commerce-related pages visited by users, such as product, cart, and checkout pages.

You can open TPL files with any text editor, since the files are saved in plain text format. However, you may want to use a source code editor that supports the Smarty 3 templating language or allows you to install a plugin that supports the language to provide helpful coding features.

You can open TPL files with Microsoft Visual Studio Code in Windows, macOS, or Linux. Then, you can install the free "Smarty" extension to add support for syntax highlighting and snippets in the Smarty 3 templating language.
