/Twig 1


The if statement in Twig is comparable with the if statements of PHP.

In the simplest form you can use it to test if an expression evaluates to true:

{% if online == false %}
    <p>Our website is in maintenance mode. Please, come back later.</p>
{% endif %}

You can also test if an array is not empty:

{% if users %}
        {% for user in users %}
            <li>{{ user.username|e }}</li>
        {% endfor %}
{% endif %}


If you want to test if the variable is defined, use if users is defined instead.

You can also use not to check for values that evaluate to false:

{% if not user.subscribed %}
    <p>You are not subscribed to our mailing list.</p>
{% endif %}

For multiple conditions, and and or can be used:

{% if temperature > 18 and temperature < 27 %}
    <p>It's a nice day for a walk in the park.</p>
{% endif %}

For multiple branches elseif and else can be used like in PHP. You can use more complex expressions there too:

{% if kenny.sick %}
    Kenny is sick.
{% elseif kenny.dead %}
    You killed Kenny! You bastard!!!
{% else %}
    Kenny looks okay --- so far
{% endif %}


The rules to determine if an expression is true or false are the same as in PHP; here are the edge cases rules:

Value Boolean evaluation
empty string false
numeric zero false
whitespace-only string true
empty array false
null false
non-empty array true
object true
