How to call the controller in the template

It is a bad idea. According to pattern, View nothing should know about Controller.


How to create a widget that can be used in different places without passing a variable,

Why you even wanna do that ? Use some service/helper or partial view.


You can extend the View class and have it automatically pass in variables that are applicable through the system. In my case I like to have DEV and ENV available.
