Hi,

 

I would like to know how I can add a variable in every smarty template. For example, we can use {$urls.base_url} because $urls is an array that has been assigned for all templates.

 

How can I have {$my_global_variable} available everywhere?

 

I tried a hook in hookActionDispatcher with :

public function hookActionDispatcher($params = []){
	$this->context->smarty->assign('my_global_var', [
        'mycontent' => 'abcdef',
      ]);
}

but it's not working, {$my_global_variable} is an undefined index when I dump($this->context->smarty->tpl_vars['my_global_var']) in my controller:initContent. So I think smarty tpl_vars got reassigned somehow between hookActionDispatcher and controller:initContent

 

Thanks

Florian

I had the same issue. Just to let others know : there's now a hook for that (since Prestashop 1.7.5.0 apparently). In your module :

public function hookactionFrontControllerSetVariables()
{
	return array(
		'your_variable' => $your_value
	);
}

Then in your template :

${modules.your_module_name.your_variable}

Way better than an override

That's extremely helpful, thanks @Jgoss!
