Getting started

Rendering of Twig templates works nearly exactly the same way as rendering Fluid templates.

In contrast to Fluid there are no "layouts" nor "partials" in Twig. Everything is "just" a template. Therefore there are some features missing that you are probably used by Fluid.

Render templates in TypoScript

To render a Twig template you can use the TWIGTEMPLATE content object. You can use it similar to the way, Fluid was used before. The variables are rendered as content objects and data processing is also possible.

page = PAGE
page.10 {
    templateName = example.html.twig
    variables {
        foo = TEXT
        foo.value = Bar!
    templateRootPaths {
        10 = EXT:cvc_twig/Resources/Private/TwigTemplates
    dataProcessing {
        10 = TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\DataProcessing\FilesProcessor
        10 {
            references.fieldName = image

This extension is not the first extension that supports rendering Twig templates. We decided to create our own extension, because other extensions were either not maintained anymore, they carried to much overhead or they were not developed close to the Fluid reference implementation.

In the table below you can find other extensions that provides an integration for the Twig template engine:
