      $app = new \Slim\Slim( array(
      'view' => new \Slim\Views\Twig()

      $view = $app->view();
      $view->parserOptions = array(
      'debug' => true

      $view->parserExtensions = array(
          new \Slim\Views\TwigExtension(),

     $app->get('/', function() use($app){

     $app->get('/contact', function() use($app){

      $app->post('/contact',function() use ($app){
      $name = $app->request->post('name');
      $email = $app->request->post('email');
      $msg = $app->request->post('msg');

       if(!empty($name) && !empty($email) && !empty($message)){
        $cleanName = filter_var($name, FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING);
        $cleanEmail = filter_var($email, FILTER_SANITIZE_EMAIL);
        $cleanMessage = filter_var($msg, FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING);
        } else {

       $transport = Swift_SendmailTransport::newInstance('/usr/sbin/sendmail -bs');
       $mailer = \Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);

        $message = \Swift_Message::newInstance();
        $message->setSubject('Email from our website');
        $cleanEmail => $cleanName
