Twig Components / Methods / template_from_string

template_from_string(template, name = null) is a Twig function to load a template from a string.

{{ include(template_from_string("Hello {{ name }}")) }}
{{ include(template_from_string(page.template)) }}

To ease debugging, you can also give the template a name that will be part of any related error message:

{{ include(template_from_string(page.template, "template for page " ~ page.name)) }}

Note: The template_from_string function is not available by default. You must add the \Twig\Extension\StringLoaderExtensionextension explicitly when creating your Twig environment:

$twig = new \Twig\Environment(...);
$twig->addExtension(new \Twig\Extension\StringLoaderExtension());

Note: Even if you will probably always use the template_from_string function with the include function, you can use it with any tag or function that takes a template as an argument (like the embed or extends tags).


  • template: The template
  • name: A name for the template
