pagination in your Symfony projects with the KnpPaginatorBundle

To list a large result set on your page can end up with long loading times and/or a confusing look. This is where pagination comes into play, it's a widely used concept to divide your content into clean blocks of data.

The KnpPaginatorBundle is a great bundle for pagination inside Symfony. The bundle requires Symfony >=3.4 and Twig >=2.0 if you use the twig templating engine in your project.

install KnpPaginatorBundle

The bundle can be installed using composer with the following command:

composer require knplabs/knp-paginator-bundle

If you don't use flex you have to register the bundle before you can use it. more

how to implement a database driven navigation into your layout within symfony4

Today we are implementing a database driven navigation into a Symfony application. My prefered way to complete this task is to create a Twig Extension in combination with LazyLoading to prevent overhead and initiation of unused classes. With this solution we have our query logic inside the repositories and the markup inside a Twig template to ensure a clean separation. As an alternative approach you could register your navigation as a service or simply render a controller method inside your Twig template.
