What is Blade?

According to Laravel Blade documentation is:

Blade is the simple, yet powerful templating engine provided with Laravel. Unlike other popular PHP templating engines, Blade does not restrict you from using plain PHP code in your views. In fact, all Blade views are compiled into plain PHP code and cached until they are modified, meaning Blade adds essentially zero overhead to your application. Blade view files use the .blade.php file extension.


You can use the power of Blade like Layouts, Control Structures, Sub-Views, Directives and your Custom If Statements.

All the documentation about Laravel Blade is in the official documentation.


The default values of the package are:

Option Default Values Description
beebmx.kirby-blade.views site/cache/views (string) Location of the views cached
beebmx.kirby-blade.directives [] (array) Array with the custom directives
beebmx.kirby-blade.ifs [] (array) Array with the custom if statements

All the values can be updated in the config.php file.


All the views generated are stored in site/cache/views directory or wherever you define your cache directory, but you can change this easily:

'beebmx.kirby-blade.views' => '/site/storage/views',


By default Kirby Blade comes with 4 directives:


But you can create your own:

'beebmx.kirby-blade.directives' => [
    'greeting' => function ($text) {
        return "<?php echo 'Hello: ' . $text ?>";

If Statements

Like directives, you can create your own if statements:

'beebmx.kirby-blade.ifs' => [
    'logged' => function () {
        return !!kirby()->user();

After declaration you can use it like:

    Welcome back {{ $kirby->user()->name() }}
