Build Status

This is a Slim Framework view helper built on top of the Twig templating component. You can use this component to create and render templates in your Slim Framework application. It works with Twig 1.18+ (PHP5.5+) and with Twig 2 (PHP7).

Install

Via Composer

$ composer require slim/twig-view

Requires Slim Framework 3 and PHP 5.5.0 or newer.

Usage

// Create Slim app
$app = new \Slim\App();

// Fetch DI Container
$container = $app->getContainer();

// Register Twig View helper
$container['view'] = function ($c) {
    $view = new \Slim\Views\Twig('path/to/templates', [
        'cache' => 'path/to/cache'
    ]);
    
    // Instantiate and add Slim specific extension
    $basePath = rtrim(str_ireplace('index.php', '', $c['request']->getUri()->getBasePath()), '/');
    $view->addExtension(new Slim\Views\TwigExtension($c['router'], $basePath));

    return $view;
};

// Define named route
$app->get('/hello/{name}', function ($request, $response, $args) {
    return $this->view->render($response, 'profile.html', [
        'name' => $args['name']
    ]);
})->setName('profile');

// Run app
$app->run();

Custom template functions

This component exposes a custom path_for() function to your Twig templates. You can use this function to generate complete URLs to any Slim application named route. This is an example Twig template:

{% extends "layout.html" %}

{% block body %}
<h1>User List</h1>
<ul>
    <li><a href="{{ path_for('profile', { 'name': 'josh' }) }}">Josh</a></li>
</ul>
{% endblock %}

Testing
