xi-bundle-breadcrumbs

A Breadcrumbs bundle for Symfony2.

This is different from other breadcrumb bundles, because it utilizes routes
as a tree to build the breadcrumbs in order to not pollute the controller
actions with repetitive breadcrumbs code.

Build Status

Design goals

  • Implement breadcrumbs with configurable and internationalised labels and urls
  • Keep it DRY: Do not repeat breadcrumbs code for the same page in several controller actions
  • Avoid using annotations either
  • Allow cyclical loops on breadcrumb hierarchy and handle it intelligently

Installing

Add bundle to composer.json

"require": {
    # ..
    "xi/breadcrumbs-bundle": ">=2.1"
    # ..
}

Add bundle to AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
{
    $bundles = array(
        ...

        new Xi\Bundle\BreadcrumbsBundle\XiBreadcrumbsBundle(),
    );

    ...
}

Usage

Basic usage

Add {{ xi_breadcrumbs() }} into your template and add parent and label into your route defaults.
Label is optional, and defaults to the route name.

root:
    pattern:   /
    defaults:
        label: "home"

foo:
    pattern:   /foo
    defaults:
        parent: "root"

bar:
    pattern:   /foo/bar/{slug}
    defaults:
        label: "bar {slug}"
        parent: "foo"

Parent is the name of the parent route. Label can have placeholder values between braces, as shown
below with {slug}. Note that child routes should have all the placeholders available that their parents
will use – otherwise the placeholders will be stripped from the label.

Internationalised routes

For internationalised routes using BesimpleI18nRoutingBundle, use a similar array of locales as in the locales option.

xi_service:
    locales:
        en: /service
        fi: /palvelu
    defaults:
        label:
            en: "Services"
            fi: "Palvelut"
