Twig library for CodeIgniter 2.x

Installation

First, Create twig cache directory under application/cache; and give it write permission

$ mkdir -p application/cache/twig
$ chmod o+w application/cache/twig

Add the Twig config file to application/config/twig.php

Install Twig Using Composer

Navigate to your project and install composer:

$ cd /path/to/my/project
$ curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Add composer.json in root folder

{
    "require": {
        "twig/twig": "1.9.1"
    }
}

Execute

$ composer.phar install

Add following line at the top of index.php :

include_once './vendor/autoload.php';

Usage

Put in your controller,

$this->load->library('twig');
$data['title'] = "Testing Twig!!";
$this->twig->display('view.html', $data);

CodeIgniter helper functions

If you want to use CodeIgniter helper functions in Twig templates do this in your controller.

$this->load->library('twig'); // load the Twig library
$this->load->helper('url'); // load the CodeIgniter URL helper
// map the base_url() function as a Twig function 
$this->twig->add_function('base_url'); 

Then in your Twig view call the base_url() function like this

{{ base_url() }}
