I’m curious what everyone is doing to organize and break large complex templates into smaller parts. I have a complex page layout, and I want to break the layout into discrete parts rather than have one very large template partial.
Should I just create several template partials under /partials folder for each section of the page template? Or, create a subfolder in /partials specific to this page template? I’m curious as to what others are doing and what the best practice for this is.
If you’re using Sage 9, I’m still waiting for a reply/update, but you can see my new issue here with Blade now having
With this new addition, I plan on creating a
templates/components folder and using it for things such as
alerts as well as converting large partials into multiple small components to use inside of the partial instead.
I can see this being great for things like sliders, widgets, etc. and should help a bit with organization.
Components can also accept data in the form of an array or as a
@slot which should make them quite useful.
You can read more about Blade Components here.
Do note that Sage 9 doesn’t support
@component yet: https://github.com/roots/sage/issues/1841
Sage is a starter theme, though. It doesn’t support
@component out of the box but updating
composer.json to include new features is right in line with Sage’s intended use.
