TwigView - Laravel View Replacement

TwigView replaces the default Laravel View class with the Twig Template Engine.


  1. Download the Source
  2. Register the Bundle with Laravel
  3. Replace the View alias (optional)

Download the Source

Download a copy of the source from Github.

Register the Bundle with Laravel

In the application/bundles.php file, register the TwigView bundle

'twigview' => array(
    'location' => 'twigview', 'autoloads' => array(
        'map' => array(
            'TwigView\\View' => '(:bundle)/view.php',

Replace the View alias (optional)

In the application/config/application.php file, replace the alias with the following:

'aliases' => array(
    'View' => 'TwigView\\View',

If you leave the alias as-is, you can still call \TwigView\View in your controllers.


All your views must have the .twig file extension. You can use the TwigView\View object in the same manner as the Laravel\View object. Just keep in mind that you are using Twig syntax inside your views.
