The sfTemplatingPlugin is a symfony plugin that provides support for using arbitrary templates from anywhere within a symfony project.

The plugin integrates the Symfony Templating component neatly into the symfony framework itself.

With the plugin, you can easily create templates for uses other than actions and components. It is also useful when you need templating features but don't have access to the full symfony environment (in a symfony task for example).

The plugin includes classes that:

  • Automatically escape HTML (similar to a symfony action template).
  • Handle escaping in the same way as symfony (sfOutputEscaper).
  • Handle the loading of core (Helper, Url, Asset, Tag, Escaping) and standard (as defined in config) symfony helpers for you.
  • Allows you to load other symfony helpers using use_helper() just like a normal symfony template.


  • Install the plugin (via a package):

    $ symfony plugin:install -s alpha sfTemplatingPlugin
  • Install the plugin (via a Subversion checkout):

    $ svn co http://svn.symfony-project.com/plugins/sfTemplatingPlugin/branches/0.1 plugins/sfTemplatingPlugin
  • Enable the plugin in config/ProjectConfiguration.class.php:

    class ProjectConfiguration extends sfProjectConfiguration
      public function setup()
