  1. Install EabFancyGalleryBundle using composer:

    composer require --update-no-dev --prefer-dist eab/fancy-gallery-bundle

    Composer will install the bundle and its dependencies into vendors.

    You can use git to install into the src subtree:

    git clone https://github.com/eab-dev/EabFancyGalleryBundle.git src/Eab/FancyGalleryBundle
  2. Enable the bundle in the kernel by editing ezpublish/EzPublishKernel.php:

    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...
            new Sp\BowerBundle\SpBowerBundle(),
            new Eab\FancyGalleryBundle\EabFancyGalleryBundle(),
            // ...
  3. Install the latest version of FancyBox:

    php ezpublish/console sp:bower:install
    php ezpublish/console assets:install --symlink

If when installing the bower assets you see an error message like:

ECMDERR Failed to execute "git ls-remote --tags --heads git://github.com/fancyapps/fancyBox.git", exit code of #128 fatal: unable to connect to github.com

the quick workaround is to disable the git: protocol:

git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://

and run the install command again.


If your bundle is not extending eZDemoBundle, you need to tell EabFancyGalleryBundle which pagelayout template to use. There are two easy ways to do this:

  1. Edit ezpublish/config/config.yml:

         pagelayout: AcmeMyBundle::pagelayout.html.twig
  2. In your own bundle, edit a file such as src/Acme/MyBundle/Resources/config/services.yml and add:

         eab_fancy_gallery.pagelayout: AcmeMyBundle::pagelayout.html.twig

    With this second method make sure that your bundle is loaded after EabFancyGalleryBundle.


The following settings can be configured in the same way as pagelayout:

  • summary_in_full_view - whether or not to show the summary
  • page_limit - number of images to show per page
  • children_types - array of content types that should be displayed in the gallery
  • image_variation - the image variation to use for thumbnails

You can also override the templates by copying Resources/config/override.yaml into your own bundle's configuration and changing the controllers or templates (hint: change the keys e.g. change image: to image_override:).

The FancyBox CSS is loaded by the gallery template. If you want to load it on all pages you need to:

  1. Override full/gallery.html.twig with your own template that doesn't load the CSS.

  2. Edit your page_header_style.html.twig template and include the FancyBox CSS asset:

     {% stylesheets filter='cssrewrite,?cssmin'
     <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{ asset_url }}"/>
     {% endstylesheets %}


After installing this bundle you can run ezpublish/console sp:bower:install to update the Fancybox assets at any time. Take care: it will update other bower assets as well!


  1. This bundle assumes your website uses Bootstrap 3. If it doesn't you'll need to override and modify the templates. See the example template for Bootstrap 2.

  2. The configuration for this bundle is not siteaccess aware. If your site has different layouts for different siteaccesses, you can either override the gallery and image templates for each of your siteaccesses, or else reprogram the way that the 'pagelayout' template variable is set. So please fork the repository, rewrite the code and issue a pull request. Thanks!
