Use Smarty in your templates.


Install using composer:

composer require 'vierwd/symfony-smarty'

Usage in controllers

To use smarty templates for your controller just extend the Vierwd\Symfony\Smarty\Controller\SmartyController. You can then use $this->render('error/error.tpl') to render a Smarty template.


// src/Controller/IndexController.php
namespace App\Controller;

use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;
use Symfony\Component\Routing\Annotation\Route;

use Vierwd\Symfony\Smarty\Controller\SmartyController;

class IndexController extends SmartyController {

	 * @Route("/", name="index")
	public function index(Request $request): Response {
		return $this->render('index/index.tpl', ['message' => 'Hello from Smarty']);
{* templates/index/index.tpl *}


Pre-defined variables

There are some variables, that are always available to your templates:

Variable Name Contents
app Symfony\Bridge\Twig\AppVariable
tagRenderer Symfony\WebpackEncoreBundle\Asset\TagRenderer
imageService An image service which can be used to scale images using imagemagick
authChecker AuthorizationCheckerInterface

Pre-defined smarty functions, blocks and modifiers

  • csrf_token
  • integer
  • url
  • path
  • svg
  • twig

Power-Block: twig

If you still need some twig logic, you can embed twig template code within your Smarty templates:
