Grav TwigCache Plugin

TwigCache is a Grav plugin that allows you to wrap portions of your Twig output in cache tags to cache specific long-running or expensive twig processes. The Grav TwigCache plugin is made possible by the asm89/twig-cache-extension Twig extension.


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 twigcache.

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTE: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which requires Grav, the Error and Problems plugins, and a theme to be installed in order to operate.


The twigcache plugin doesn't require any configuration. The moment you install it, it is ready to use. It uses the same cache mechanism that Grav is using, so it automatically stores the result data in APC, XCache, WinCache, memcache, FileSystem, etc.

To take advantage of the plugin you should wrap your long-running or expensive twig processes in the cache tags:

{% cache 'github_api_stars' 600 %}
Grav currently has: <b>{{ github.client.api('repo').show('getgrav', 'grav')['stargazers_count'] }}</b> stargazers
{% endcache %}
  • The github_api_stars identifier is cache name and should be unique.
  • The 600 value is the number of seconds to cache the content
  • The content between the cache tags will be cached accordingly
