php-symfonyHow to create a template in Symfony with PHP?

Creating a template in Symfony with PHP is a simple process.

First, create a template file in the templates directory of your project. For example, hello.html.php:

<h1>Hello, <?= $name ?></h1>

Then, create a controller to render the template. For example, HelloController.php:


namespace App\Controller;

use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\AbstractController;

class HelloController extends AbstractController
    public function hello($name)
        return $this->render('hello.html.php', [
            'name' => $name

Finally, add a route to the controller in config/routes.yaml:

    path: /hello/{name}
    controller: App\Controller\HelloController::hello

The output of the example code will be an HTML page with the text Hello, [name] where [name] is the value of the $name variable.

Parts of the code:

  • templates/hello.html.php: Template file containing the HTML code to be rendered.
  • HelloController.php: Controller class containing the logic to render the template.
  • config/routes.yaml: Configuration file containing the route to the controller.
