Mustache View

Tiny bundle for Laravel which allows you to use the mustache template language for your views. It uses the mustache.php class built by bobthecow and renders files with the extension ".mustache".


Installing the bundle is done in 3 easy steps:

  1. Download the source
  2. Copy Mustache into /bundles
  3. Register the bundle
  4. Change the view alias
  5. Bind Event listener


Download/clone the source into your bundles directory.

Bundle Registration

Register the bundle in your application/bundles.php file.

'Mustache' => array(
    'autoloads' => array(
        'namespaces' => array(
            'Mustache' => '(:bundle)'

Change View Alias

This view extends the Laravel\View class and replaces it to provide mustache functionality, so you'll need to modify your application/config/application.php file, replacing the 'View' alias with one that points to the mustache view.

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

Bind Event Listener

In order to avoid modifying laravel's default view class more than necessary, Mustache will bind the the laravel.composing event. This also preserves support for blade.php files. Add the following to the end of your application/start.php file.



The view should work like any other view, other than the fact that you use mustache files (with the file extension '.mustache') to build your templates rather than PHP files. This does mean that none of the helper functions are available, so build your controllers accordingly.

For information about the mustache syntax, see the manual: mustache(5)
