PHP Simple View Engine

A simple template engine that is lightweight and has no dependencies.

Installation and Configuration

For installation, composer must be installed. There is no stable version of the package yet.

    composer require ahmetbarut/view-render

Add the following configurations after the package is installed. The package needs the cache and template directories, you need to create it and specify its path.

    $view = new \ahmetbarut\View\Render([
        "view" => __DIR__ . "/view",
        'cache' => __DIR__ . '/cache'


After the configuration of the package is finished, let's first use it with a template.

Create a file in the created template directory.

    // view/home.php
    {{ $helloWorld }}
    // index.php
    require_once  "vendor/autoload.php";

    $view = new \ahmetbarut\View\Render([
        "view" => __DIR__ . "/view",
        'cache' => __DIR__ . '/cache'

    $view->load('home', [
        "helloWorld" => "Hello World !"

The load method loads the corresponding template.


Directives are uses for this template.

extends and yield

The extends directive can be used to add layouts. Imagine you have a page and constantly copying the entire structure of this page causes us to write code in a very tedious and unnecessary way. In this case, the extends directive simplifies our work. The yield directive allows to fetch the sections that will change on each page.

Örnek Kullanım:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

And we included our home.php page and included the relevant layout and pushed our page into layout.

// home.php

Hello Template Title

hello there, this is content

section and endSection

The section directive starts the section and the endSection directive ends the section and pushes it into order.
