Twig Template Engine

Twig is a modern template engine for PHP1

Twig is used by many Open-Source projects like Symfony, Drupal, eZPublish, phpBB, Matomo, OroCRM; and many frameworks have support for it as well like Slim, Yii, Laravel, and Codeigniter.2

The dump function dumps information about a template variable.3
The dump function is not available by default. You must add the \Twig\Extension\DebugExtension extension explicitly when creating your Twig environment:

$twig = new \Twig\Environment($loader, [
    'debug' => true,
    // ...
$twig->addExtension(new \Twig\Extension\DebugExtension());

Even when enabled, the dump function won’t display anything if the debug option on the environment is not enabled (to avoid leaking debug information on a production server).4

    {{ dump(user) }}
  • Using a pre tag is not needed when XDebug is enabled and html_errors is on; as a bonus, the output is also nicer with XDebug enabled.
