Bundle to use Pagerfanta with Symfony.

This bundle is a continuation of the WhiteOctoberPagerfantaBundle.

The bundle includes:

  • Twig function to render pagerfantas with views and options.
  • Way to use easily views.
  • Way to reuse options in views.
  • Basic CSS for the DefaultView.


  1. Use Composer to install the bundle in your application
composer require babdev/pagerfanta-bundle
  1. Register the bundle with your application

If your application is based on the Symfony Standard structure, you will need to add the bundle to your AppKernel class' registerBundles() method.

// app/AppKernel.php

// ...
class AppKernel extends Kernel
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = [
            // ...

            new BabDev\PagerfantaBundle\BabDevPagerfantaBundle(),

        // ...

    // ...

If your application is based on the Symfony Flex structure, the bundle should be automatically registered, otherwise you will need to add it to your config/bundles.php file.


return [
    // ...

    BabDev\PagerfantaBundle\BabDevPagerfantaBundle::class => ['all' => true],
  1. Configure and use things!

A) Creating a Pager is shown on the Pagerfanta documentation. If you're using the Doctrine ORM, you'll want to use the DoctrineORMAdapter

B) Rendering in Twig is shown below in the Rendering Pagerfantas section.

C) Configuration is shown through this document

Rendering Pagerfantas

First, you'll need to pass an instance of Pagerfanta as a parameter into your template. For example:


use Pagerfanta\Adapter\DoctrineORMAdapter;
use Pagerfanta\Pagerfanta;

$adapter = new DoctrineORMAdapter($queryBuilder);
$pagerfanta = new Pagerfanta($adapter);

return $this->render('@YourApp/Main/example.html.twig', [
    'my_pager' => $pagerfanta,

You then call the the Pagerfanta Twig extension, passing in the Pagerfanta instance. The routes are generated automatically for the current route using the variable "page" to propagate the page number. By default, the bundle uses the DefaultView with the default name. The default syntax is:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager) }}

By default, the "page" variable is also added for the link to the first page. To disable the generation of ?page=1 in the url, simply set the omitFirstPage option to true when calling the pagerfanta twig function:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default', { 'omitFirstPage': true}) }}

You can omit the template parameter to make function call shorter, in this case the default template will be used:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, { 'omitFirstPage': true }) }}

If you have multiple pagers on one page, you'll need to change the name of the page parameter. Here's an example:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_other_pager, 'default', {'pageParameter': '[page_other]'}) }}

Note the square brackets around page_other; this won't work without them.

Twitter Bootstrap

The bundle has support for views using Twitter Bootstrap.

For Bootstrap 2:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap') }}

For Bootstrap 3:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap3') }}

For Bootstrap 4:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap4') }}

Semantic UI

The bundle also has a Semantic UI view.

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'semantic_ui') }}

Custom template

If you want to use a custom template, add another argument:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'my_template') }}

With options:

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default', {'proximity': 2}) }}

See the Pagerfanta documentation for the list of possible parameters.

Rendering the page of items itself

The items can be retrieved using currentPageResults. For example:

{% for item in my_pager.currentPageResults %}
        <li>{{ }}</li>
{% endfor %}

Translate in your language

Translated views are available for all supported views by adding _translated to the name.

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default_translated') }}

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap_translated') }}

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'semantic_ui_translated') }}

Adding Views

Views are added to the service container with the pagerfanta.view tag. You should also optionally specify an alias, which is used as the view's name with the Twig function, but if one is not given then the service ID is used instead.


    <!-- Use in Twig by calling {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default') }} -->
    <service id="pagerfanta.view.default" class="Pagerfanta\View\DefaultView" public="false">
        <tag name="pagerfanta.view" alias="default" />

    <!-- Use in Twig by calling {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'pagerfanta.view.semantic_ui') }} -->
    <service id="pagerfanta.view.semantic_ui" class="Pagerfanta\View\SemanticUiView" public="false">
        <tag name="pagerfanta.view" />


    # Use in Twig by calling {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default') }}
        class: Pagerfanta\View\DefaultView
        public: false
            - { name: pagerfanta.view, alias: default }

    # Use in Twig by calling {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'pagerfanta.view.semantic_ui') }}
        class: Pagerfanta\View\SemanticUiView
        public: false
            - { name: pagerfanta.view }

Reusing Options

Sometimes you want to reuse options of a view in your project, and you don't want to write them all the times you render a view, or you can have different configurations for a view and you want to save them in a place to be able to change them easily.

For this you have to define views with the special OptionableView:

        class: Pagerfanta\View\OptionableView
            - @pagerfanta.view.default
            - { proximity: 2, prev_message: Anterior, next_message: Siguiente }
        public: false
            - { name: pagerfanta.view, alias: my_view_1 }

        class: Pagerfanta\View\OptionableView
            - @pagerfanta.view.default
            - { proximity: 5 }
        public: false
            - { name: pagerfanta.view, alias: my_view_2 }

And using then:

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'my_view_1') }}
{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'my_view_2') }}

The easiest way to render pagerfantas (or paginators!) ;)

Basic CSS for the default view

The bundles comes with basic CSS for the default view so you can get started with a good paginator faster. Of course you can change it, use another one or create your own view.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ asset('bundles/babdevpagerfanta/css/pagerfantaDefault.css') }}" type="text/css" media="all" />


It's possible to configure the default view for all rendering in your configuration file:

// app/config/config.yml for Symfony Standard applications
// config/packages/babdev_pagerfanta.yaml for Symfony Flex applications
    default_view: my_view_1

Making bad page numbers return a HTTP 500

Right now when the page is out of range or not a number, the server returns a 404 response by default.

You can set the following parameters to something other than the default value to_http_not_found (ie. null) to show a 500 error when the requested page is not valid instead.

// app/config/config.yml for Symfony Standard applications
// config/packages/babdev_pagerfanta.yaml for Symfony Flex applications
        out_of_range_page:        ~
        not_valid_current_page:   ~
