This bundle is here to make it easy to create webP images in a Symfony project.


The bundle contains one command so far. codebuds:webp:convert.

This will allow you to pass a directory in which you want all the jpeg, png, gif and bmp images to be converted to webP.

It has multiple parameters :

  • --create without this the directories will be checked, but the final images will not be created.
  • --quality set the quality for the webp images (80 by default)
  • --force recreate existing webP images (false by default)
  • --suffix add a suffix to the created webp image names


php bin/console codebuds:webp:convert --create --quality=90 --suffix=_q90 public/images

if the public/images contains image.jpeg, after the command it will contain image_q90.webp.

Twig extension

The bundle contains a twig extension that will generate the webp image and return the path to it. This helps to easily generate the elements to optimize the websites rendering speed.

<!-- old school approach -->
<img src="/public/images/test.jpg">

<!-- new approach -->
    <source srcset="{{ '/public/images/test.jpg' | cb_webp }}" type="image/webp">
    <source srcset="/public/images/test.jpg"  type="image/jpeg">
    <img src="/public/images/test.jpg">

This also works with vich_uploader assets and liip_imagine filters :

    <source srcset="{{ vich_uploader_asset(asset, 'imageFile') | cb_webp | set_webp_extension | imagine_filter(filter) }}" type="image/webp">
    <source srcset="{{ vich_uploader_asset(asset, 'imageFile') | imagine_filter(filter) }}">
    <img src="{{ vich_uploader_asset(asset, 'imageFile') | imagine_filter(filter) }}">
