Rich Editor

Rich Editor Plugin license Tests Status Security Status

This plugin adds a rich editor on the fields you want. Now you can manage your content very easily!

Example of rich editor field


composer require monsieurbiz/sylius-rich-editor-plugin

Change your config/bundles.php file to add the line for the plugin :


return [
    MonsieurBiz\SyliusRichEditorPlugin\MonsieurBizSyliusRichEditorPlugin::class => ['all' => true],

Then create the config file in config/packages/monsieurbiz_sylius_rich_editor_plugin.yaml :

    - { resource: "@MonsieurBizSyliusRichEditorPlugin/Resources/config/config.yaml" }

Finally import the routes in config/routes/monsieurbiz_sylius_rich_editor_plugin.yaml :

    resource: "@MonsieurBizSyliusRichEditorPlugin/Resources/config/routing/admin.yaml"
    prefix: /%sylius_admin.path_name%

And install the assets

bin/console asset:install

Use the Rich Editor

Update your form type

To make a field use the rich editor, you must use the RichEditorType type for it.
We have an example of implementation in the test application.

If your field has some data already, like some previous text before installing this plugin, then we will convert it for you as an HTML Element which contains… HTML.

Example of a rich editor field

This way you will be able to use our plugin right away without risking any data lost!

Call twig render

To display the content of the rich editor field you must call the twig filter:

{{ content | monsieurbiz_richeditor_render_field }}

You can see an example in the test application

Custom rendering of elements

You can also render your elements with some custom DOM around that. To do so, you have access to a twig filter that gives you the elements list :

{% set elements = monsieurbiz_richeditor_get_elements(content) %}

And then you can either render them all :

{{ elements|monsieurbiz_richeditor_render_elements }}

Or one by one :

{% for element in elements %}
    {{ element|monsieurbiz_richeditor_render_element }}
{% endfor %}

Filter the elements

If you want to filter the elements which are available for your field, you can use the tags option when you build your form.
As example:

$builder->add('description', RichEditorType::class, [
    'required' => false,
    'label' => 'sylius.form.product.description',
    'tags' => ['product'],

In that example, only the Ui Elements with the tag product will be available.
Don't worry, you can add this filter afterwards, we won't remove the already present Ui Elements of your field. But we won't allow to add more if they don't have one of the allowed tags!

Example of setting tags to an Ui Element using yaml

            tags: ['product']

Deactivate an available element

Here is what really happens when deactivating an Ui Element:

  • it's not displayed anymore in frontend
  • it's still editable in backend for old contents but you can't add a new one
  • if the element has an alias, the alias is treated the same way

Define the overload of a proposed UiElement in your configuration folder, let's say in config/packages/monsieurbiz_sylius_richeditor_plugin.yaml as example.

            enabled: false

Create your own elements

In this example, we will add a Google Maps element.

Define your UiElement

Define your UiElement in your configuration folder, let's say in config/packages/monsieurbiz_sylius_richeditor_plugin.yaml as example.

            title: 'app.ui_element.google_maps.title'
            description: 'app.ui_element.google_maps.description'
            icon: map pin
                form: App\Form\Type\UiElement\GoogleMapsType
                #ui_element: App\UiElement\MyUiElement
                admin_render: '/Admin/UiElement/google_maps.html.twig'
                front_render: '/Shop/UiElement/google_maps.html.twig'
            tags: []

You can use your own Ui Element object if needed. Be sure to implement the \MonsieurBiz\SyliusRichEditorPlugin\UiElement\UiElementInterface interface.
A trait is there for you 🤗 as well. This is very useful when you need to do some custom work in your templates, it's like having a helper around. The Ui Element is then available via the ui_element variable in your templates.

Create the Form Type we use in admin to fill your UiElement



namespace App\Form\Type\UiElement;

use Symfony\Component\Form\AbstractType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\Extension\Core\Type\TextType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\FormBuilderInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Validator\Constraints as Assert;

class GoogleMapsType extends AbstractType
    public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
            ->add('link', TextType::class, [
                'label' => '',
                'required' => true,
                'constraints' => [
                    new Assert\NotBlank(),

Add your translations of course

Here is an example of possible translation for the GMap element :

            title: 'Google Maps Element'
            short_description: 'Include a Google Maps'
            description: 'An element with a Google Maps link'
            link: 'Link'

Create the templates to render it in front and in admin

You have to create a template for the front and also for the admin's preview.

Here is an example of a simple template for this our which can be used in front and admin:

<iframe id="gmap_canvas" src="{{ }}" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" width="600" height="500" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The result !

The element is in the UI Elements list

The Google Maps element

You now have a form to edit it (your form!)

The Google Maps form

And we use your templates to render your UiElement

In admin :

The GMap display

In front :

The GMap display

File in fixtures management

In some cases you will want to add UI elements to your content fixtures which are Rich Editor fields. If you need files in your UI elements, you can use a dedicated fixture. It is used as follows.

                    name: monsieurbiz_rich_editor_file
                            -   source_path: 'src/Resources/fixtures/bar1.png'
                                target_path: 'image/foo/bar1.png'
                            -   source_path: 'src/Resources/fixtures/file.pdf'
                                target_path: 'baz/file.pdf'

The exemple below will copy files to public/media/image/foo/bar1.png and public/media/foo/file.pdf.

Now you can use files in your content fixtures:

description: |
        "code": "app.my_ui_element",
        "data": {
          "title": "My title",
          "image": "/media/image/foo/bar1.png",
          "file": "/media/baz/file.pdf"
