Template subcomponent for Expressive.

This package provides the following classes, interfaces, and traits:

  • TemplateRendererInterface, a generic interface for providing template rendering capabilities.
  • TemplatePath, a value object describing a (optionally) namespaced path in which templates reside; the TemplateRendererInterface returns these.
  • ArrayParametersTrait provides helper methods you can mix in to implementations for normalizing template parameters to an array.
  • DefaultParamsTrait provides helper methods you can mix in to implementations for aggregating default parameters as well as merging global, template-specific, and provided parameters when rendering.


Typically, you will install this when installing Expressive. However, it can be used standalone to provide a generic way to provide templating to your application. To do this, use:

$ composer require zendframework/zend-expressive-template

We currently support and provide the following routing integrations:

  • Plates: composer require zendframework/zend-expressive-platesrenderer
  • Twig: composer require zendframework/zend-expressive-twigrenderer
  • ZF2 PhpRenderer: composer require zendframework/zend-expressive-zendviewrenderer


Expressive provides template documentation.
