Implement Laravel Facade to Silex

Last post, while I understanding how does laravel work behind, I said that I guess I can implement laravel facade to silex since they have similiar inner structure. And I just did it. This is how.

first, of course we need them both;

and then lets do it. mmmm… hold on, other things that most important is `Alias Loader`, facade is just a class, and alias loader let us to naming our facades.

For now, we will only work with Twig, but i am pretty sure it’s more than enough to let you understand and then you can implement this to other Service Provider that compatible with Silex. Here it is.

Then we have to create `\Facades\Twig.php` some where that accessed by composer;

Optionally for this article, you can create views/hello.twig and put anything on its file. e.g ‘Hello World !’ or whatever. Next we can create the silex application, don’t forget to register TwigServiceprovider since we need it.

By now, instead of using $app['twig']->render(), you can use laravel style: Twig::render().
