Passing a TWIG method via Hook...


Recommended Posts

After some effort and endless searching for articles to lead me in the right direction, I'm stumped. I'm using Twig and have the following installed:

  • ProcessWire 3.0.98
  • Template Engine Factory 1.1.3
  • Template Engine Twig 1.1.0

In ready.php, I've added the following code (which works wonderful without Twig)

	$wire->addHookProperty('Page::summarize', function($event) {		
		$fieldName = $event->arguments(0);

		if(!$fieldName) throw new WireException("No field provided");
		// get max length or use 300 as default if none provided
		$maxLength = (int) $event->arguments(1);
		if(!$maxLength) $maxLength = 300;
		$page = $event->object;
		$value = $page->get($fieldName);
		if(!strlen($value)) {
			// requested value is blank, nothing more to do
			$event->return = '';
		// get beginning of value, without any HTML in it (if any)
		$value = mb_substr(strip_tags($value), 0, $maxLength);
		// if output formatting on, make sure value is entity encoded
		if($page->of()) $value = $event->sanitizer->entities1($value);
		if(strlen($value) >= $maxLength) {
			// limit length of returned value between words
			// by truncating to the last space character
			$value = substr($value, 0, strrpos($value, ' '));
			// append an ellipsis to indicate there is more
			$value .= '…';

		$event->return = $value;

In my news.php template file, I have the following:

  namespace ProcessWire;

  $results = $page->children("template=news, limit=10, sort=-created");

And in news.html.twig I use something like this:

{{ summarize('result.body', 500) }}

Exception: Unknown "summarize" function. (in twig\site\assets\cache\FileCompiler\site\modules\TemplateEngineTwig\TemplateEngineTwig.module line 94)

So far Processwire is awesome, I'm loving it!
