Smarty and Twig View Parser package for the Slim Framework

v0.2.1 2014-08-04 01:30 UTC

README

This repository contains custom View classes for the template frameworks listed below. You can use any of these custom View classes by either requiring the appropriate class in your Slim Framework bootstrap file and initialize your Slim application using an instance of the selected View class or using Composer (the recommended way).

Slim Views only officially support the following views listed below.

  • Smarty
  • Twig

How to Install

using Composer

Create a composer.json file in your project root:

{
    "require": {
        "slim/views": "0.1.*"
    }
}

Then run the following composer command:

$ php composer.phar install

Smarty

How to use

<?php
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

$app = new \Slim\Slim(array(
    'view' => new \Slim\Views\Smarty()
));

To use Smarty options do the following:

$view = $app->view();
$view->parserDirectory = dirname(__FILE__) . 'smarty';
$view->parserCompileDirectory = dirname(__FILE__) . '/compiled';
$view->parserCacheDirectory = dirname(__FILE__) . '/cache';

Twig

How to use

<?php
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

$app = new \Slim\Slim(array(
    'view' => new \Slim\Views\Twig()
));

To use Twig options do the following:

$view = $app->view();
$view->parserOptions = array(
    'debug' => true,
    'cache' => dirname(__FILE__) . '/cache'
);

In addition to all of this we also have a few helper functions which are included for both view parsers. In order to start using these you can add them to their respective view parser as stated below:

Twig
$view->parserExtensions = array(
    new \Slim\Views\TwigExtension(),
);
Smarty
$view->parserExtensions = array(
    dirname(__FILE__) . '/vendor/slim/views/Slim/Views/SmartyPlugins',
);

These helpers are listed below.

  • urlFor
  • siteUrl
  • baseUrl
urlFor

Twig

Inside your Twig template you would write:

{{ urlFor('hello', {"name": "Josh", "age": "19"}) }}

You can easily pass variables that are objects or arrays by doing:

<a href="{{ urlFor('hello', {"name": person.name, "age": person.age}) }}">Hello {{ name }}</a>

If you need to specify the appname for the getInstance method in the urlFor functions, set it as the third parameter of the function in your template:

<a href="{{ urlFor('hello', {"name": person.name, "age": person.age}, 'admin') }}">Hello {{ name }}</a>

Smarty

Inside your Smarty template you would write:

{urlFor name="hello" options="name.Josh|age.26"}

or with the new array syntax:

{urlFor name="hello" options=["name" => "Josh", "age" => "26"]}

You can easily pass variables that are arrays as normal or using the (.):

<a href="{urlFor name="hello" options="name.{$person.name}|age.{$person.age}"}">Hello {$name}</a>

If you need to specify the appname for the getInstance method in the urlFor functions, set the appname parameter in your function:

<a href="{urlFor name="hello" appname="admin" options="name.{$person.name}|age.{$person.age}"}">Hello {$name}</a>
siteUrl

Twig

Inside your Twig template you would write:

{{ siteUrl('/about/me') }}

Smarty

Inside your Smarty template you would write:

{siteUrl url='/about/me'}
baseUrl

Twig

Inside your Twig template you would write:

{{ baseUrl() }}

Smarty

Inside your Smarty template you would write:

{baseUrl}
