Plugin Description:

This plugin allows you to use the Twig template engine within the themes that use it.

In particular, the plug-in incorporates the twig code and offers 3 functions that allow you to instantiate and run the render of a twig-script. These functions can be easily called in the GetSimple template file.

The plugin defines the following functions:

getTwig ()

This function returns an instance of twig already initialized. The plugin is assumed that into the theme is present the 'views' folder where the script will look for twig-files

getPageModel ()

This function return a Page object; This object contains all the information which refer the page to load, the selected theme, general information of the site, including of course the title of the page and its contents. This is a wrapper of the most important information for implementing the page to display

render ()

This method is a shortcut that allows you to run the render the page in question, the requested page. This uses the above functions to RETURN the content to display.
