JMSSerializerBundle allows you to serialize your data into a requested output format such as JSON, XML, or YAML, and vice versa.

You can learn more in the documentation for the standalone library.


You can install this bundle using composer

composer require jms/serializer-bundle

or add the package to your composer.json file directly.

After you have installed the package, you just need to add the bundle to your AppKernel.php file:

// in AppKernel::registerBundles()
$bundles = array(
    // ...
    new JMS\SerializerBundle\JMSSerializerBundle(),
    // ...


JMSSerializerBundle requires no initial configuration to get you started.

For all available configuration options, please see the :doc:`configuration reference <configuration>`.


The configured serializer is available as jms_serializer service:

$serializer = $container->get('jms_serializer');
$serializer->serialize($data, $format);
$data = $serializer->deserialize($inputStr, $typeName, $format);

In templates, you may also use the serialize filter:

{{ data | serialize }} {# serializes to JSON #}
{{ data | serialize('json') }}
{{ data | serialize('xml') }}
