Multiple inheritance

Hi

I can't get work below example:

http://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/reference/volt.html#multiple-inheritance

I have three files.

1) views/index.volt with below content:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Title</title>
        {% block stylesheet %}{% endblock %}
    </head>
    <body>
        {% block content %}{% endblock %}
        {% block javascript %}{% endblock %}
    </body>
</html>

2) views/layouts/index.volt with below content:

{% extends 'index.volt' %}

{% block stylesheet %}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style-layout-index.css" type="text/css" />
{% endblock %}

{% block javascript %}
    <script>alert('hello from layout');</script>
{% endblock %}

{% block content %}
<h1>Main content of view/layouts/index.volt</h1>
{% endblock %}

3) views/index/index.volt content is:

{% extends 'layouts/index.volt' %}

{% block stylesheet %}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style-view-index.css" type="text/css" />
{% endblock %}

{% block javascript %}
    <script>alert('hello from view');</script>
{% endblock %}

{% block content %}
<h1>Main content of view/index/index.volt...</h1>
{% endblock %}

HTML generated it's:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Title</title>

    </head>
    <body>


    </body>
</html>

I notice that there is not {{ content() }} called anywhere on that example, and when I try add it then code generated it's a bit messed.

Any suggestion?

I would like to have a master views/index.volt template with different blocks, which can be extended by single layouts, and each view file should be also able extend blocks of master and layout template.

Thanks!!

I found a workaround. Can someone tell me if is good practice? Or how to manage a structure like this?

1) file view/index.volt with content:

{{ content() }}

2) file templates/index.volt with content: (I should rename folder 'layouts' to 'templates' because don't work when folder it's named 'layouts', not sure why)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Title</title>
        {% block stylesheet %}
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="style-tpl-index.css" type="text/css" />
        {% endblock %}
    </head>
    <body>
        {% block content %}{% endblock %}
        {% block javascript %}{% endblock %}
    </body>
</html>

3) view/index/index.volt with content:

{% extends 'templates/index.volt' %}

{% block stylesheet %}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style-view-index.css" type="text/css" />
{% endblock %}

{% block javascript %}
    <script>alert('hello from view');</script>
{% endblock %}

{% block content %}

{{ super() }}

<h1>Main content of view/index/index.volt...</h1>
{% endblock %}
