RouteAutofillBundle can auto-fill missing missing route-parameters when generating

v0.1.1 2019-08-13 14:09 UTC


The RollerworksRouteAutofillBundle helps with generating routes that follow a shared prefix with parameters. All end-points at a deeper level always have the route-parameters of their prefix, and therefor can reuse these when generating a route that also has this same prefix.

For example: You are current at the following route /webhosting/{account}/ftp/users/ and want to generate a URL back to /webhosting/{account}/. Because the current page already has a value for {account}, we can easily reuse this.

Tip: This technique also works for host-requirements.

But there is more, this bundle also provides a RouteRedirectResponse to generate a redirect response for a route with ease.

What's this good for?

Their are times when you cannot provide the required route-parameters, or simply don't want to be bothered with these details.

The main purpose of this bundle is convenience, you can always solve these challenges differently but that also requires more work.


You need at least PHP 7.1 and the Symfony FrameworkBundle.


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

$ php composer.phar require rollerworks/route-autowiring-bundle

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

Basic usage

First of auto-filling the route parameters does not happen automatically, only when you use the AutoFilledUrlGenerator (compatible with the Symfony Routing system) auto-filling is provided.


Note: The RouteRedirectResponse already uses this route-generator.

Secondly, you need to set the autofill_variables option for your routes to enable the auto-filling of specific parameters.

Caution: This option must be set per route, provide either an array or a string with named separated by a , (account,id).


The RouteRedirectResponse is provided to directly generate a redirect response for a route:

use Rollerworks\Bundle\RouteAutofillBundle\Response\RouteRedirectResponse;

// (string $route, array $parameters = [], int $status = 302)
return new RouteRedirectResponse('route-name');

That's it.

Flash messages

Additionally you can add flash messages directly at the response.

return RouteRedirectResponse::toRoute('route-name')
    ->withFlash('success', '', 'arguments');

When the arguments are empty (null) the message is past added to FlashBag as a string, otherwise it's an array like ['message' => '' => ['id' => 200]].

Translations and special formatting must still be done in the template. The withFlash() method can be called multiple times if needed.
