Right place for shared custom functions

edited March 2015 in Framework

I would like to create some functions usable in all apps; for example some filters to use in views. What is the place/way to do it. Thanks.


  • The best way is to create a class in your app like this:

    namespace myapp;
    class Filter {
        public static function my_filter ($data) {
            return strrev ($data);

    Then you can access it as a filter via {{ some_value|myapp\Filter::my_filter }}. The namespace and class wrapper make it accessible via the autoloader, so no includes necessary.

  • Create a "bootstrap.php" in root directory, this file will be required autoly. If you really like to define normal functions, you can put codes there.

  • Thanks to both.
