Views - Twig

The framework provides deep integration with Twig Template engine including access to IoC scopes, i18n integration, and caching.

Installation and Configuration

To install Twig:

composer require spiral/twig-bridge

The extension can be enabled using Spiral\Twig\Bootloader\TwigBootloader.

php
protected const LOAD = [
    // ...
    Spiral\Bootloader\Views\ViewsBootloader::class,
    Spiral\Bootloader\Views\TranslatedCacheBootloader::class, // keep localized views in separate cache files
    Spiral\Twig\Bootloader\TwigBootloader::class,
    // ...
];

You can add any custom extension to Twig via addExtension method of TwigBootloader:

php
class TwigExtensionBootloader extends Bootloader
{
    public function boot(TwigBootloader $twig): void
    {
        $twig->addExtension(MyExtension::class);
    
        // custom options
        $twig->setOption('name', 'value');
    }
}

Usage

You can use twig views immediately. Create a view with .twig extension in app/views directory.

twig
Hello, {{ name }}!

You can use this view without an extension in your controllers:

php
public function index(): string
{
    return $this->views->render('filename', ['name' => 'User']);
}

Note
You can freely use twig include and extends directives.

To access the value from the IoC scope:

twig
Hello, {{ name }}!

{{ get("Spiral\\Http\\Request\\InputManager").attribute('csrfToken') }}
