Twig Extensions Plugin

The Twig Extensions plugin is for Grav CMS. It pulls in a subset of the official Twig Extensions, v1.4.0.

For a demo, visit my blog.


Installing the Twig Extensions plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install twig-extensions

This will install the Twig Extensions plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/twig-extensions.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to twig-extensions. You can find these files on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTE: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which requires Grav and the Error and Problems to operate.


Below is the default configuration. An explanation of the various fields follows. To customize, first copy twig-extensions.yaml to your user/config/plugins folder and edit that copy.

enabled: true
modules: [array, intl, date]

  • The enabled field turns the plugin off and on.

  • The modules array tells the plugin which modules you want imported. This plugin only imports three of the five modules. These are the only valid options.


Simply enable the plugin to use these Twig filters. There are three modules available:

  • The Intl module provides three filters:

    • localizeddate formats a date based on the locale.
    • localizednumber formats a number based on the locale.
    • localizedcurrency formats a number based on a given currency code.
  • The Array module provides a single filter:

    • shuffle randomizes an array.
    • Note: This code was slightly modified to allow shuffling associative arrays. Simply pass true to enable this feature: {{ myArray | shuffle(true) }}.

The Date module also only provides a single filter:

  • time_diff dispays the delta between two dates in a human readable form (e.g., 2 days ago).

For more information, read the official documentation.

Omitted Modules

  • The Text module is omitted because Grav already has truncate built in, and the wordwrap provided here is not very helpful.

  • The I18n module is omitted because Grav already has extensive i18n features.
