Help with Slim, Twig, and PHP, in my project.

I'm currently working on a redesigning my website with PHP, currently I have a rough sketch laid out. The only problem is I'm try to D.R.Y why code with PHP and Twig templates, but whenever I run it on my local server it never fully runs. I know everything on my computer and server is fine because I have run my project from workspaces on it and it worked. All my software (used in my working and failing projects) is up to date and I ran my localhost in chrome. Can anyone take a look at my source code and tell me if there is anything wrong with it?


require __DIR__ .'/vendor/autoload.php';

$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){

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

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

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


main.twig :

<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <meta charset= "utf-8">
    <title> Adam Siwiec</title>   
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css"> 
    <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto|Montserrat' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> 

            <section class = "title">
            <a href="index.html" >
            <h1>Adam Siwiec</h1>
                Interestingly Complementary

                <ul id = "navigation">
                    <li><a href="me.html">Vision</a></li>
                    <li><a href="vid.html">Library</a></li>
                    <li><a href="case.html">Cases</a></li>


        {%block content%}
        {%endblock content%}

I have a couple more "content" pages that inputs content to main.twig, but there is nothing wrong with them.

Maybe you should check Slim User Gide to ensure that you start you server correctly and give to it proper file.
