format_date

New in version 2.12

The format_date filter was added in Twig 2.12.

The format_date filter formats a date. It behaves in the exact same way as the format_datetime filter, but without the time.

Note

The format_date filter is part of the IntlExtension which is not installed by default. Install it first:

1
$ composer require twig/intl-extra

Then, on Symfony projects, install the twig/extra-bundle:

1
$ composer require twig/extra-bundle

Otherwise, add the extension explicitly on the Twig environment:

1
2
3
4
use Twig\Extra\Intl\IntlExtension;

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

Arguments

  • locale: The locale
  • dateFormat: The date format
  • pattern: A date time pattern
