DEPRECATED

This Craft CMS 2.x plugin is no longer supported, but it is fully functional, and you may continue to use it as you see fit. The license also allows you to fork it and make changes as needed for legacy support reasons.

The Craft CMS 3.x version of this plugin can be found here: craft-pathtools and can also be installed via the Craft Plugin Store in the Craft CP.

PathTools twig plugin for Craft

This twig plugin for the Craft CMS brings convenient path & url manipulation functions & filters to your Twig templates.

Related: PathTools for Craft 3.x

Installation

To install PathTools, follow these steps:

  1. Download & unzip the file and place the pathtools directory into your craft/plugins directory
  2. -OR- do a git clone https://github.com/khalwat/pathtools.git directly into your craft/plugins folder. You can then update it with git pull
  3. Install plugin in the Craft Control Panel under Settings > Plugins
  4. The plugin folder should be named pathtools for Craft to see it. GitHub recently started appending -master (the branch name) to the name of the folder for zip file downloads.

Usage

All of the functionality offered by PathTools can be used either as a filter, e.g.:

{{ myAsset.url | basename }}

Or as a function, e.g.:

{% set myBaseName = basename(myAsset.url) %}

php Wrapper Functions

Utility Functions

swap_extension

Can be passed either a path or a url, and it will return the path or url with the filename extension changed, e.g.:

<source src="{{ myAsset.url | swap_extension('mp4') }}" type='video/mp4' />
<source src="{{ myAsset.url | swap_extension('webm') }}" type='video/webm' />

For myAsset.url = http://www.coolvids.com/content/vids/MyCoolVid.mp4 the output would be:

<source src="http://www.coolvids.com/content/vids/MyCoolVid.mp4" type='video/mp4' />

<img src="{{ myAsset.url | swap_directory('/over/there') }}" />

For myAsset.url = http://www.coolvids.com/not/here/rock.pdf the output would be:

<img src="http://www.coolvids.com/over/there/rock.pdf" />

append_suffix

Can be passed either a path or a url, and it will return the path or url with the suffix appended to the filename, e.g.:

<img src="{{ myAsset.url | append_suffix('@2x') }}" />

For myAsset.url = http://www.coolvids.com/img/ux/search.png the output would be:
