Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality

Are you often tired to repeat static choices like gender or civility in your apps ?

Requirements

  • Symfony >= 3.3

Installation

Run the following command:

composer require knplabs/dictionary-bundle

Register the bundle in app/AppKernel.php

$bundles = array(
    // ...
    new Knp\DictionaryBundle\KnpDictionaryBundle(),
);

Maintainers

You can ping us if need some reviews/comments/help:

Basic usage

Define dictionaries in your config.yml file:

knp_dictionary:
  dictionaries:
    my_dictionary: # your dictionary name
      - Foo        # your dictionary content
      - Bar
      - Baz

You will be able to retreive it trough the dictionaries collection service:

$dictionaries = $container->get(\Knp\DictionaryBundle\Dictionary\Collection::class);
$dictionary   = $dictionaries['my_dictionary'];

Dictionary form type

Now, use them in your forms:

use Knp\DictionaryBundle\Form\Type\DictionaryType;

public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
{
    $builder
        ->add('civility', DictionaryType::class, array(
            'name' => 'my_dictionary'
        ))
    ;
}

The dictionary form type extends the symfony's choice type and its options.

Validation constraint

You can also use the constraint for validation. The value has to be set.

use Knp\DictionaryBundle\Validator\Constraints\Dictionary;

class User
{
    /**
     * @ORM\Column
     * @Dictionary(name="my_dictionary")
     */
    private $civility;
}

Advanced usage

You can specify the indexation mode of each dictionary

knp_dictionary:
  dictionaries:
    my_dictionary:      # your dictionary name
      type: 'key_value' # your dictionary type
      content:          # your dictionary content
        "foo": "foo_value"
        "bar": "bar_value"
        "baz": "baz_value"

Available types

  • value (default) : Natural indexation
  • value_as_key: Keys are defined from their value
  • key_value: Define your own keys
  • callable: Build a dictionary from a callable

Callable dictionary

You can create a callable dictionary:

knp_dictionary:
  dictionaries:
    my_callable_dictionary:     # your dictionary name
      type: 'callable'          # your dictionary type
      service: 'app.service.id' # a valid service from your application
      method: 'getSomething'    # the method name to execute

Callable dictionaries are loaded with a lazy strategy. It means that the callable will not be called if you do not use the dictionary.

Combined dictionary

You can combine multiple dictionaries into a single one:

knp_dictionary:
  dictionaries:
    payment_mode:
      type: key_value
      content:
        card: "credit card"
        none: "none"

    extra_payment_mode:
      type: key_value
      content:
        bank_transfert: "Bank transfert"
        other: "Other"

    combined_payment_mode:
      type: combined
      dictionaries:
        - payment_mode
        - extra_payment_mode

Now you have 3 dictionaries, payment_mode and extra_payment_mode contain their own values but combined_payment_mode contains all the values of the previous ones.

Extended dictionary

You can create an extended dictionary:

knp_dictionary:
  dictionaries:
    europe:
      type: 'key_value'
      content:
        fr: France
        de: Germany

    world:
      type: 'key_value'
      extends: europe
      content:
        us: USA
        ca: Canada

The dictionary world will now contain its own values in addition to the europe values.

Note: You must define the initial dictionary BEFORE the extended one.

Transformers

For now, this bundle is only able to resolve your class constants:

my_dictionary:
  - MyClass::MY_CONSTANT
  - Foo
  - Bar

You want to add other kinds of transformations for your dictionary values ? Feel free to create your own transformer !

Add your own transformers

Create your class that implements TransformerInterface. Load your transformer and tag it as knp_dictionary.value_transformer.

services:
  App\My\Transformer:
    tags:
      - knp_dictionary.value_transformer

Use your dictionary in twig

You can also use your dictionary in your Twig templates via calling dictionary function (or filter)

{% for example in dictionary('examples') %}
    {{ example }}
{% endfor %}

But you can also access directly to a value by using the same function (or filter)

{{ 'my_key'|dictionary('dictionary_name') }}

Faker provider

The KnpDictionaryBundle comes with a faker provider that can be used to provide a random entry from a dictionary.

Alice

To register the provider in nelmio/alice, you can follow the official documentation

or ...

if you use the awesome knplabs/rad-fixtures-load library, the dictionary provider will be automaticaly loaded for you :)

App\Entity\User:
  john_doe:
    firstname: John
    latnale: Doe
    city: <dictionary('cities')>

Create your own dictionary implementation

Dictionary

Your dictionary implementation must implements the interface Dictionary.

Dictionary Factory

You must create a dictionary factory that will be responsible to instanciate your dictionary.

services:
  App\Dictionary\Factory\MyCustomFactory:
    tags:
      - knp_dictionary.factory
