Custom Slim Framework view for the Plates template system

v5.0.0 2015-10-06 19:16 UTC


This library provides a custom view for the Slim Framework to support the Plates template engine.


Add the provider to your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "philipsharp/slim-view-plates": "5.*"

Enable it in your application


$view = new \philipsharp\Slim\View\Plates();

$app = new \Slim\Slim(array(
    'view' => $view


Template File Extension

Set $view->fileExtension to the file extension used for all templates.

By default Plates expects the extension to be .php.

Templates Path

Set $view->templatesPath to the location of the templates.

By default Slim-View-Plates will use the Slim templates.path configuration value. This setting allows you to override that value for only the Plates templates.

Templates Folder

Add to the $view->templatesFolders array, where the key is the name of the folder and the value is the path.

Advanced Usage

To access the Plates engine object for further customization, including loading extensions, call $view->getInstance().
