The TypoScript Content Object FLUIDTEMPLATE works similar to the regular TEMPLATE cObject, but instead of the marker and subpart based templates it expects Fluid style templates.

Note: Currently the extensions Fluid and Extbase have to be installed for this Content Object to work.


Using this Content Object is as simple as:

10.file = fileadmin/templates/MyTemplate.html

With the variables key you are able to set values that will be available within your Fluid template:

10 {
	file = fileadmin/templates/MyTemplate.html
	variables {
		foo = TEXT
		foo.value = Hello World!


Further properties of the FLUIDTEMPLATE cObject are:

  • layoutRootPath - relative or absolute path to the folder that contains Fluid layouts
  • partialRootPath - relative or absolute path to the folder that contains Fluid partials
  • format - default format that will be used for links (defaults to html)

Furthermore you can specify the default plugin values that are mainly used to search layouts/partials (if layoutRootPath/partialRootPath have not been specified) and to resolve extension/controller in Fluid links. Available extbase properties are:

  • extbase.pluginName
  • extbase.controllerExtensionName
  • extbase.controllerName
  • extbase.controllerActionName

Note: All properties of the FLUIDTEMPLATE cObject support stdWrap

A fully fledged example

10 {
	file = MyTemplate.html
	file.wrap = fileadmin/templates/ |
	layoutRootPath = fileadmin/templates/layouts
	partialRootPath = fileadmin/templates/partials
	format = xml
	extbase {
		pluginName = SomePlugin
		controllerExtensionName = SomeExtension
		controllerName = SomeController
		controllerActionName = someAction
	variables {
		title = TEXT
		title.value = Some Title
		mainNavigation < lib.mainNavigation

The corresponding Fluid template (fileadmin/templates/MyTemplate.html) could look like this:

<f:layout name="Default" />

<f:section name="header">
	<f:render partial="GraphicalHeader" arguments="{header: title}" />
<f:section name="body">
	<div id="mainNavigation">
	<div id="content">

Fluid Standalone View

The FLUIDTEMPLATE content object internally uses the Fluid Standalone View, which can also be used by your own code if you need to render Fluid (f.e. to render an e-mail text), as in the following example:

$view = t3lib_div::makeInstance('Tx_Fluid_View_StandaloneView');
$view->assign('key', 'value');
print $view->render();
