Twig Module


Fast: Twig compiles templates down to plain optimized PHP code. The overhead compared to regular PHP code was reduced to the very minimum.

Secure: Twig has a sandbox mode to evaluate untrusted template code. This allows Twig to be used as a templating language for applications where users may modify the template design.

Flexible: Twig is powered by a flexible lexer and parser. This allows the developer to define its own custom tags and filters, and create its own DSL.

Credit goes to Jonathan Geiger and John Heathco for creating the original modules. This fork contains the following improvements.

  • Sandbox configuration
  • Syntax 〃
  • Kohana template loader. Now templates aren't restricted to one directory
  • Updated to follow the Kohana convention


  1. git submodule add git:// modules/twig
  2. cd modules/twig && git submodule update --init
  3. Enable twig in your bootstrap.php file
  4. Extend Controller_Template_Twig


Pretty similar to using the Controller_Template_Twig class.

class Controller_Example extends Controller_Template_Twig
  // Template names are generated automatically if not specified. So this
  // action would map to: example/index.twig
  public function action_index()
    $this->template->variable = "Hello World";

Not Happy?
