Add barcodes to your products.


Step 1: Download the plugin

Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute the following command to download the latest stable version of this bundle:

$ composer require loevgaard/sylius-barcode-plugin

This command requires you to have Composer installed globally, as explained in the installation chapter of the Composer documentation.

Step 2: Enable the plugin

Then, enable the plugin by adding it to the list of registered plugins/bundles in the config/bundles.php file of your project:

// config/bundles.php

return [
    // ...
    Setono\DoctrineORMBatcherBundle\SetonoDoctrineORMBatcherBundle::class => ['all' => true],
    Loevgaard\SyliusBarcodePlugin\LoevgaardSyliusBarcodePlugin::class => ['all' => true],
    // ...

Note that adding SetonoDoctrineORMBatcherBundle also required.

Step 3: Configure the plugin

# config/packages/loevgaard_sylius_barcode.yaml
    # ...
    - { resource: "@LoevgaardSyliusBarcodePlugin/Resources/config/app/config.yaml" }
        require: true # If true the barcode field will be required in the product forms
        require_valid: true # If true the barcode must be valid when entered in the product forms

Step 4: Import product variant trait

// src/Entity/ProductVariant.php


namespace App\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;
use Loevgaard\SyliusBarcodePlugin\Model\ProductVariantInterface as LoevgaardSyliusBarcodePluginProductVariantInterface;
use Loevgaard\SyliusBarcodePlugin\Model\ProductVariantTrait as LoevgaardSyliusBarcodePluginProductVariantTrait;
use Sylius\Component\Core\Model\ProductVariant as BaseProductVariant;

 * @ORM\Entity
 * @ORM\Table(name="sylius_product_variant")
class ProductVariant extends BaseProductVariant implements LoevgaardSyliusBarcodePluginProductVariantInterface
    use LoevgaardSyliusBarcodePluginProductVariantTrait;
    // ...

NOTE: If you haven't extended the ProductVariant entity yet, follow the customization instructions first because you need to add a bit more configuration:

# config/packages/_sylius.yaml
                model: App\Entity\ProductVariant

Step 5: Update your database schema

$ php bin/console doctrine:migrations:diff
$ php bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate

Step 6: Add form widgets to twig templates

You need to override the template displaying the product and product variant form and add a form_row statement with the barcode:

{# templates/bundles/SyliusAdminBundle/ProductVariant/Tab/_details.html.twig #}

{# ... #}

<div class="ui segment">
    {{ form_row(form.code) }}
    {{ form_row(form.barcode) }} {# This is the part you should add #}
    <div class="two fields">
        {{ form_row(form.shippingCategory) }}
    {{ form_row(form.channelPricings) }}

{# ... #}
{# templates/bundles/SyliusAdminBundle/Product/Tab/_details.html.twig #}

<div class="ui segment">
    {{ form_row(form.code) }}
    {{ form_row(form.enabled) }}
    {% if product.simple %}
        {{ form_row(form.variant.barcode) }} {# This is the part you should add #}
        {{ form_row(form.variant.onHand) }}
        {{ form_row(form.variant.tracked) }}
        {{ form_row(form.variant.shippingRequired) }}
        {{ form_row(form.variant.version) }}
    {% else %}
        {{ form_row(form.options) }}
        {{ form_row(form.variantSelectionMethod) }}
    {% endif %}

    {# Nothing to see here. #}
    <div class="ui hidden element">
        {% if product.simple %}
            {{ form_row(form.variant.translations) }}
        {% endif %}
        {{ form_row(form.variantSelectionMethod) }}

If you haven't overridden the template yet, you can just copy the templates from vendor/loevgaard/sylius-barcode-plugin/src/Resources/views/SyliusAdminBundle to templates/bundles/SyliusAdminBundle/

Step 7: Add validator constraint

Create config/validator/ProductVariant.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<constraint-mapping xmlns="http://symfony.com/schema/dic/constraint-mapping"
                    xsi:schemaLocation="http://symfony.com/schema/dic/constraint-mapping http://symfony.com/schema/dic/services/constraint-mapping-1.0.xsd">
    <class name="App\Entity\ProductVariant">
        <constraint name="Symfony\Bridge\Doctrine\Validator\Constraints\UniqueEntity">
            <option name="fields">barcode</option>
            <option name="message">loevgaard_sylius_barcode.product_variant.barcode.unique</option>
            <option name="groups">sylius</option>

Like it configured at example application.

Step 8: Using asynchronous transport (optional, but recommended)

All commands in this plugin will extend the CommandInterface. Therefore you can route all commands easily by adding this to your Messenger config:

# config/packages/messenger.yaml
            # Route all command messages to the async transport
            # This presumes that you have already set up an 'async' transport
            'Loevgaard\SyliusBarcodePlugin\Message\Command\CommandInterface': async


Run the check command:

$ php bin/console loevgaard:barcode:check

This will mark all product variant as checked and updated the field barcodeValid to either true or false depending on the result of the check.
