Blade

Brings Laravel's great template engine, Blade, to WordPress. Just install and start using blade in your theme.

Blade is the template engine for Laravel, a very popular php framework, developed by Taylor Otwell. This plugin brings the same template engine to wordpress. Using a template engine will result in much cleaner template files and quicker development. Normal php can still be used in the template files. The plugin also adds a wordpress specific snippet to blade. Check out the examples for more info.

{{$foo}}

<?php echo $foo ?>

@if(has_post_thumbnail())
    {{the_post_thumbnail() }}
@else 
    <img src="{{bloginfo( 'template_url' )}}/images/thumbnail-default.jpg" />
@endif

Turns into...

<?php if(has_post_thumbnail()) : ?>
    <?php the_post_thumbnail() ?>
<?php else: ?>
    <img src="<?php bloginfo( 'template_url' ) ?>/images/thumbnail-default.jpg" />
<?php endif; ?>

@wpposts
    <a href="{{the_permalink()}}">{{the_title()}}</a><br>
@wpempty
    <p>404</p>

    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title() ?></a><br>
<?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <p>404</p>
<?php endif; ?>

<ul>
@wpquery(array('post_type' => 'post'))
    <li><a href="{{the_permalink()}}">{{the_title()}}</a></li>
@wpempty
    <li>{{ __('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.') }}</li>
@wpend
</ul>

Turns into....

<ul>
<?php $query = new WP_Query( array('post_type' => 'post') ); ?>
<?php if ( $query->have_posts() ) : ?>
    <?php while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post(); ?>
        <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"> <?php the_title() ?> </a></li>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
<?php else : ?>
    <li><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.') ?></li>
<?php endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
</ul>

Advanced Custom Fields

<ul>
    @acfrepeater('images')
        <li>{{ get_sub_field( 'image' ) }}</li>
    @acfend
</ul>

Turns into...

<ul>
    <?php if( get_field( 'images' ) ): ?>
        <?php while( has_sub_field( 'images' ) ): ?>
            <li><img src="<?php the_sub_field( 'image' ) ?>" /></li>
        <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
</ul>

Including other templates

To include a file with blade use:

@include('header')

Note that you should not type “.php”. Files included with functions, e.g. the_header(), will not be compiled by Blade, however the php code in the file is still executed.

Layouts

master.php:

<html>
    <div class="content">
        @yield('content')
    </div>
</html>

page.php:

@layout('master')

@section('content')
    <p>Lorem ipsum</p>
@endsection

See the Blade documentation for more info.
