What is Twig?

Twig- the flexible, fast and secure template language for PHP. Twig uses a syntax similar to Django and Jinja template languages which inspired the Twig runtime environment.

Twig is both designer and developer-friendly by sticking to PHP's principles and adding functionality useful for templating environments.

Features of Twig

The key features of Twig are:

  • 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 template 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 their own custom tags and filters, and to create their own DSL.

Twig is used by many Open-Source projects like Symfony, Drupal8, eZPublish, phpBB, Matomo, OroCRM; and many frameworks have support for it as well like Slim, Yii, Laravel, and Codeigniter — just to name a few.
