Zend Developer Zone:
Creating Web Page Templates with PHP and Twig (part 1)
April 07, 2011 @ 12:44:43

On the Zend Developer Zone today there's a new tutorial from Vikram Vaswani about using the Twig templating engine in your application. It's part one of a series that introduces the library to you and includes examples of some of the most common templating logic.

Most PHP frameworks, including Zend Framework, Agavi, CakePHP and CodeIgniter, come with built-in templating to enable this separation. However, if you're not a big fan of frameworks, or if your project is small enough that you don't need the additional overhead, you can also consider using a standalone template engine to obtain the same benefits. A number of such engines exist - you've probably already heard of Smarty, Savant, Dwoo and others - and in this article, I'll introduce you to one I discovered rather recently, called Twig.

The Twig project gives you a framework-independent tool for creating simple (or complex, if you'd like) templates for the output of your site. He shows you how to get it installed (via PEAR) and provides some sample templates for things like:

  • using conditionals (if/else/etc)
  • looping
  • working with arrays from PHP
  • including other templates
  • using included filtering on data
