Symfony 4: Directory Structure
Fabien Potencier

About your question:

“Would tpl make more sense compared to the other short 3-letter directory names?”

I don’t think so. “tpl” is not as well-known as “etc”, “src”, “var”, etc. Besides, depending on your font, you may read it as “tp ONE” instead of “tp L”.

I think that “templates” is a perfect name for this. Besides, you never use that in any path when rendering templates, so it doesn’t matter that it’s a bit long.

Like what you read? Give Javier Eguiluz a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
