biurad/php-templating is server side template ui for PHP 7.2+ created by Divine Niiquaye. This library provides all the tools needed in working with any kind of template system and offers a structured solution to implement server side renderable template engines (Twig, Stempler, Latte, Blade, or native PHP templates) segregation.

📦 Installation & Basic Usage

This project requires PHP 7.2 or higher. The recommended way to install, is via Composer. Simply run:

$ composer require biurad/templating

This library is shipped out of the box with three high performance and dynamic renders for fast server side templating. It also support multiple rendering (can render templates declared for different renderers all at once).

Again you don't have to worry about declaring absolute path to every single template file. Set the storage to where paths can be found, enter the name of the template file. The rest will be taken care of return the rendered result (ultimate HTML).

use Biurad\UI\Renders\PhpNativeRender;
use Biurad\UI\Helper\SlotsHelper;
use Biurad\UI\FilesystemStorage;
use Biurad\UI\Template;

$filesystemLoader = new FilesystemStorage(__DIR__.'/views');
$templating = new Template($filesystemLoader);

// Before adding a template renderer, you can add a namespace path
// $templating->addNamespace('MyBundle', __DIR__ . '/vendor/company/package/Resources');

// Add a template compiler renderer to Template.
$phpRenderEngine = new PhpNativeRender();

// You can also render an absolute path except for the fact that, it is not cacheable.
echo $templating->render('hello', ['firstname' => 'Divine']);

// hello.phtml or hello.php or hello.html
Hello, <?= $this->escape($firstname) ?>!

  • A new minor version released (e.g. 1.1, 1.2) comes out every six months: one in June and one in December. It contains bug fixes and new features, but it doesn’t include any breaking change, so you can safely upgrade your applications;
  • A new major version released (e.g. 1.0, 2.0, 3.0) comes out every two years. It can contain breaking changes, so you may need to do some changes in your applications before upgrading.
