Intro to KnpPaginatorBundle

Generally this bundle is based on Knp Pager component. This component introduces a diferent way for pagination handling. You can read more about the internal logic on the given documentation link.

Note: if you want to use older version of KnpPaginatorBundle - use v1.0 tag in the repository

Latest updates


  • Recently there was a change in repository vendor name: knplabs --> KnpLabs be sure to update your remotes accordingly. etc: to
  • One-liner: git remote set-url origin


  • Knp pager component
  • For now KnpPaginatorBundle's master is only compatible with symfony's master branch (2.1 version).
    Use the v1.0 tag of KnpPaginatorBundle if you have to stay compatible with symfony 2.0.


  • Does not require initializing specific adapters
  • Can be customized in any way needed, etc.: pagination view, event subscribers.
  • Possibility to add custom filtering, sorting functionality depending on request parameters.
  • Separation of conserns, paginator is responsible for generating the pagination view only, pagination view - for representation purposes.

Notice: using multiple paginators requires setting the alias in order to keep non conflicting parameters. Also it gets quite complicated with a twig template, since hash arrays cannot use variables as keys.

Installation and configuration:

If you use a deps file, add:



Or if you want to clone the repos:

# Install Knp components
git clone git:// vendor/knp-components

# Install knp paginator bundle
git clone git:// vendor/bundles/Knp/Bundle/PaginatorBundle

Configuration example

Is it not enough symfony2 configuration? You can override default templates using parameters

// File: app/configs/parameters.yml

  knp_paginator.template.pagination: MyBundle:Pagination:pagination.html.twig
  knp_paginator.template.sortable:   MyBundle:Pagination:sortable.html.twig

Add the namespaces to your autoloader

// File: app/autoload.php
    'Knp\\Component'      => __DIR__.'/../vendor/knp-components/src'
    'Knp\\Bundle'         => __DIR__.'/../vendor/bundles',
    // ...

Add PaginatorBundle to your application kernel

    // File: app/AppKernel.php
    public function registerBundles()
        return array(
            // ...
            new Knp\Bundle\PaginatorBundle\KnpPaginatorBundle(),
            // ...

Usage examples:


Currently paginator can paginate:

  • array
  • Doctrine\ORM\Query
  • Doctrine\ORM\QueryBuilder
  • Doctrine\ODM\MongoDB\Query\Query
  • Doctrine\ODM\MongoDB\Query\Builder
$em = $this->get('doctrine.orm.entity_manager');
$dql = "SELECT a FROM VendorBlogBundle:Article a";
$query = $em->createQuery($dql);

$paginator = $this->get('knp_paginator');
$pagination = $paginator->paginate(
    $this->get('request')->query->get('page', 1)/*page number*/,
    10/*limit per page*/

// parameters to template
return compact('pagination');


{# sorting of properties based on query components #}
    <th>{{ pagination.sortable('Id', '')|raw }}</th>
    <th>{{ pagination.sortable('Title', 'a.title')|raw }}</th>

{# table body #}
{% for article in pagination %}
<tr {% if loop.index is odd %}class="color"{% endif %}>
    <td>{{ }}</td>
    <td>{{ article.title }}</td>
{% endfor %}
{# display navigation #}
<div class="navigation">
    {{ pagination.render()|raw }}
