These requests for comments/change have lead to an implemented feature that has been successfully merged into the 3.1/Ascraeus branch. Everything listed in this forum will be available in phpBB 3.1.
Great, thats better. So now we can use all features of Twig including blocks, filters etc using Twig syntax, and some of the features using old syntax, right?
But Twig syntax is available too, right? Will there be some list in wiki, listing all features in both syntaxes?
Technically, yes, but whether or not we want to allow the use of the Twig syntax is another question. That question will be addressed in another RFC before 3.1.0 is released, but we'll wait on asking that until Twig is actually merged into 3.1.
No, I dont think so unless you dont want to use new features from Twig... All old syntax should work.
No, it is still totally applicable.*Daniel wrote:Q: the thread that explain how to turn a mod into a ext is now useless? (nv news page example)

The new TWIG engine is a transparent change... All template syntax is unchanged, so far as we are concerned. Except that if you know TWIG, you can actually use that in your template files as well as the standard phpbb syntax, if you wish.
What I want to know is, does the new TWIG engine (by the way the amount of work you did on this Nathan is awesome) address the biggest limitation of the template system for extension developers: the inability to in-line edit lines of code in template files?
Has an irascible disposition.
