What is this thing?

Hatch is a helper library for developers which makes it more pleasant to build websites using Timber, Advanced Custom Fields Pro and other common plugins.

A better way to use Timber

Using Timber we can use Twig templates to build our sites rather than PHP.

Typically we set up a Timber context like this:

$context = Timber::get_context();

$context['post'] = Timber::get_post();

function website_get_related_posts() {
    // do something fancy here

    return [];
}

$context['related_posts'] = website_get_related_posts();

Timber::render( 'post.twig', $context );

This is fine but it can get a bit mucky – especially if we have complicated page templates with lots of variables.

Hatch provides a tidier way of setting up contexts for Timber and other popular libraries:

// 'post' is already added by default

Hatch::add_context( 'related_posts', function() {
    // do something fancy
    return [];
} );

Hatch::render( 'post.twig' ); // no need to pass $context in
