Build Status SensioLabsInsight


A Symfony Media Manager. Inspired by SonataMediaBundle's use of Media Providers to add different Media types.

Note: This bundle is still very much a work in progress, so BC-breaks will happen until the first stable release.


Install FOSJsRoutingBundle according to it's documentation

Add the bundle to your composer.json

composer require opifer/media-bundle dev-master

Register the bundle and its dependencies in app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new JMS\SerializerBundle\JMSSerializerBundle(),
        new Knp\Bundle\GaufretteBundle\KnpGaufretteBundle(),
        new Liip\ImagineBundle\LiipImagineBundle(),
        new Opifer\MediaBundle\OpiferMediaBundle()

You should create your own Media entity that extends Opifer\MediaBundle\Model\Media.

namespace AppBundle\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;
use Opifer\MediaBundle\Model\Media as BaseMedia;

 * @ORM\Table(name="media")
 * @ORM\Entity(repositoryClass="Opifer\MediaBundle\Model\MediaRepository")
class Media extends BaseMedia
    // Add custom functionality...

And reference to it in your app/config/config.yml

    media_class: AppBundle\Entity\Media

Using the media manager

This bundle comes with an AngularJS media manager included. To use it, you'll need to include some necessary javascript files and CSS files into your templates.

First, make sure you installed all asset dependencies. You can download them manually, copy the bower.json file to your own bundle and run bower install or copy the bower.json content to your own bower dependencies.

Then, add the dependencies to your templates.

{% stylesheets
    filter='less,cssrewrite' %}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ asset_url }}" />
{% endstylesheets %}


{% javascripts

    'bundles/fosjsrouting/js/router.js' %}
    <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ asset_url }}"></script>
{% endjavascripts %}

Then, create an Angular module that requires the following modules:

'use strict';

angular.module('App', [

Make sure you add the angular module in your template by adding the the file to your {% javascripts %} list. And initialize the Angular App in your template:

<html ng-app="App">

To make the mediamanager accessible in the browser, add the routes to your routing.yml:

    resource: "@OpiferMediaBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"
    prefix:   /admin

    resource: "@LiipImagineBundle/Resources/config/routing.xml"
        expose: true

To use the mediamanager in your own layout, override OpiferMediaBundle::base.html.twig:

{# app/Resources/OpiferMediaBundle/views/base.html.twig #}
{% extends 'base.html.twig' %}

{% block body %}
	{% block opifer_media_body %}{% endblock %}
{% endblock %}

{% block javascripts %}
    {{ parent() }}

    {% block opifer_media_javascripts %}{% endblock %}
{% endblock %}

Adding a mediapicker to a form

Create a relationship between the media entity and any other entity. For example, Users must be able to add media to a Content item.

namespace AppBundle\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;
use Opifer\MediaBundle\Model\MediaInterface;

class Content
     * @var Media
     * @ORM\ManyToOne(targetEntity="Opifer\MediaBundle\Model\MediaInterface")
     * @ORM\JoinColumn(name="media_id", referencedColumnName="id", onDelete="SET NULL")
    protected $image;
     * Set image
     * @param string $image
     * @return Content
    public function setImage(MediaInterface $image = null)
        $this->image = $image;

        return $this;

     * Get image
     * @return MediaInterface
    public function getImage()
        return $this->image;

In your content FormType, add the mediapicker form type:

namespace AppBundle\Form\Type;

use Doctrine\ORM\EntityRepository;
use Opifer\MediaBundle\Form\Type\MediaPickerType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\AbstractType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\FormBuilderInterface;

class ContentType extends AbstractType
    public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
            // ...
            ->add('image', MediaPickerType::class, [
                'multiple' => false,
