Twig filter that splits an array into a given number of groups. This is different than the built-in batch filter, which splits the array based on a given number of items per group..

Total Downloads Latest Stable Version


The filter is registered at Packagist as cviebrock/twig-group and can be installed using composer:

composer require cviebrock/twig-group

Or just download the zip file and copy the file into your src folder.

Enable the extension:

$twig = new Twig_Environment($loader, $options);
$twig->addExtension(new Cviebrock\Twig\GroupExtension());

If you are using Laravel and rcrowe/twigbridge, then enable the extension by adding an entry to the enabled array in app/config/packages/rcrowe/twigbridge/extensions.php:

'enabled' => [


Assume we are starting with the following array:

[ 'John', 'Jane', 'Bill', 'Bob', 'Mary' ]

Pass the array and number of groups to the filter:

{{ array | group(2) }}          // [ ['John', 'Jane', 'Bill'], ['Bob', 'Mary'] ]

{{ array | group(3) }}          // [ ['John', 'Jane'], ['Bill', 'Bob'], ['Mary'] ]

Optionally pass a second parameter which will pad out all the arrays so they have the same number of elements (similar to how the built-in batch filter pads arrays:

{{ array | group(2, '-empty-') }}          // [ ['John', 'Jane', 'Bill'], ['Bob', 'Mary', '-empty-'] ]

{{ array | group(3, '-empty-') }}          // [ ['John', 'Jane'], ['Bill', 'Bob'], ['Mary', '-empty-'] ]
