Build Status


  1. Download the Bundle

    Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute the following command to download the latest stable version of this bundle:

    $ composer require liip/hyphenator-bundle

    This command requires you to have Composer installed globally, as explained in the installation chapter of the Composer documentation.

  2. Enable the Bundle

    Add the following line in the app/AppKernel.php file to enable this bundle only for the test environment:

    // app/AppKernel.php
    // ...
    class AppKernel extends Kernel
        public function registerBundles()
            new Liip\HyphenatorBundle\LiipHyphenatorBundle(),
            return $bundles
        // ...
  3. Configure the bundle:

    The supported options for the Hyphenator with the defaults are:

    # app/config/config.yml
        default_locale: 'en_GB'
        hyphen: &shy;
        left_min: 2
        right_min: 2
        word_min: 6
        quality: highest # either the quality name, either the value of the constant
        no_hyphenate_string: ''
        custom_hyphen: --
        tokenizers: ['liip_hyphenator.tokenizer.whitespace', 'liip_hyphenator.tokenizer.punctuation']
        filters: ['liip_hyphenator.filter.simple']

    All settings are optional. Caution: default_localeneeds to be a fully qualified locale like en_EN, en will not work.

    For details about their meaning consult the Hyphenator library documentation.


This library adds a filter for twig templates that can be used like:

{{ "Somelongwordtohyphenate"|hyphenate }}

Alternatively the filter can be applied to an entire block:

{% filter hyphenate %}
{% endfilter %}

Furthermore its possible to pass in a locale as a parameter if the default locale should not be used:

{{ "Somelongwordtohyphenate"|hyphenate("de") }}
