To register a Twig filter in Symfony, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Twig extension class. This class will define the filter and its functionality. For example, create a file MyTwigExtension.php in the src/Twig directory:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13

// src/Twig/MyTwigExtension.php

namespace AppTwig;

use TwigExtensionAbstractExtension;
use TwigTwigFilter;

class MyTwigExtension extends AbstractExtension
{
    public function getFilters()
    {
        return [
            new TwigFilter('my_filter', [$this, 'myFilterFunction'])
        ];
    }

    public function myFilterFunction($input)
    {
        // Filter logic
        // Return the filtered value
    }
}


  1. Register the extension as a service in the Symfony configuration file services.yaml. Add the following code under the services section:
1
2
3
4
5
# config/services.yaml

services:
    AppTwigMyTwigExtension:
        tags: [twig.extension]


  1. Clear the Symfony cache by running the command php bin/console cache:clear in your project's root directory.
  2. Now you can use your custom filter my_filter in Twig templates. For example:
1
{{ some_variable|my_filter }}


The some_variable will be passed as the input parameter to the myFilterFunction method in the MyTwigExtension class, and the filtered value will be returned and displayed in the template.


Note: Make sure the Twig extension class is placed in the correct namespace and directory, and the service configuration is properly defined in the services.yaml file.
