Lets say I have a simple string:

{% set string = "Simple String" %}

How to get number of characters of my string?


Twig has a length filter that can help you with that:

{% set stringLength = "Simple String" | length %}

Note that this also works on arrays to give you the number of items in the array.


If you are attempting to get a count of the string, you can use Twigs dump function.

{{ dump(myString) }}

  • This only works in devMode from what I've read. Never tried it outside of devMode, though. Jun 14 '14 at 17:23
