Kick-Start WordPress Development With Twig: Timber Image, Menu, and User
May 02, 2016 @ 10:51:47

The TutsPlus.com site has posted the next part of their series looking at integrating WordPress and Twig with a look at showing images, menus and users in your WordPress UI.

By now you have read about the basic concepts of using Twig through Timber, while building a modular WordPress theme. We've also studied block nesting and multiple inheritance with Twig, based on the DRY principle. Today, we are going to explore how to display attachment images, WordPress menus, and users in a theme with Twig through the Timber plugin.

They go through each of the topics (images, menus and users) and provide the code needed to both gather the data needed and the templates to render the views. This all makes heavy use of the Timber functionality to integrate it with the overall WordPress structure. Screenshots are also included of the resulting output to help you ensure things are working as expected.

Kick-Start WordPress Development With Twig: Introduction
Apr 12, 2016 @ 09:14:01

On the NetTuts.com site they've posted the first part of a new series showing you how to combine WordPress and Twig to "kick-start" your development with this popular content management system.

A lot has been written about the future of WordPress, and many believe that it lacks a templating language, especially when platforms like Django, Ruby on Rails, Node.js, Laravel, and even Drupal possess one. Facts like "WordPress powers nearly 25% of the web" make it difficult to question its current PHP-based templating system. But as the modularity in code is still missing, one can ask when the core will have a templating engine.

The good news is right here! The Twig templating engine along with a plugin called Timber can help us write super-clean and modular code in WordPress.

They start with a brief introduction to Twig and a bit of history of where it came from. They also give some reasons of why you might want to use this popular templating engine (besides its popularity, of course). The tutorial then starts in talking about Timber and how it integrates with both WordPress and Twig to render the Twig templates. This first article is more of an introduction to this integration and doesn't contain much in the way of code examples. That will be coming soon in the following parts of the series, though.
