After failing to get this extension to work using manual installation, I managed to do it using composer. I wondered why the former approach didn't work for me.

Previously we had to put the libs folder inside the smarty folder, but I now see, after using composer, that the contents of the libs folder are inside the smarty folder. Did something change? Should the docs for manual installation be updated?

Probably yes. I have not installed this extension manually in many years so I do not really know how this is done properly. I will add a note saying that the instructions may be out of date.

Manual installation also failed for me and composer installation succeeded.

I had to update Composer to v2, though. MediaWiki-specific instructions here: Composer.
