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


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

$ composer req twig/intl-extra

Then, use the twig/extra-bundle on Symfony projects or add the extension explicitly on the Twig environment:

use Twig\Extra\Intl\IntlExtension;

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