README

Instead of hardcoding the limitToPages configuration for your route enhancers this package can automatically detect the necessary pages for you and generate the configuration on the fly.

Problem

Imagine the following typical routing configuration for the news plugin.

routeEnhancers:
  NewsPages:
    type: Extbase
    # add every page-ID that contains a News Plugin
    limitToPages:
      - 23
      - 42
      - 123
      - 242
    extension: News
    plugin: Pi1
    routes:
      - { routePath: '/{myNewsTitle}', _controller: 'News::detail', _arguments: {'myNewsTitle': 'news'} }
      - { routePath: '/{myPagination}', _controller: 'News::list', _arguments: {'myPagination': '@widget_0/currentPage'} }
      - { routePath: '/{year}/{month}', _controller: 'News::list', _arguments: {'year' : 'overwriteDemand/year', 'month' : 'overwriteDemand/month'} }
    defaultController: 'News::list'
    # ...

Hardcoding the page ids for your plugin routes has the major drawback that you have to adapt the configuration as soon as someone creates a new page with a plugin (which might happen in a CMS). With the route enhancers configuration not available in the Site module this means you have to ship an updated configuration file every time an editor creates a plugin page.

Solution

routeEnhancers:
  NewsPages:
    type: Extbase
    dynamicPages:
        withPlugin: news_pi1
    extension: News
    plugin: Pi1
    routes:
      - { routePath: '/{myNewsTitle}', _controller: 'News::detail', _arguments: {'myNewsTitle': 'news'} }
      - { routePath: '/{myPagination}', _controller: 'News::list', _arguments: {'myPagination': '@widget_0/currentPage'} }
      - { routePath: '/{year}/{month}', _controller: 'News::list', _arguments: {'year' : 'overwriteDemand/year', 'month' : 'overwriteDemand/month'} }
    defaultController: 'News::list'
    # ...

Notice the dynamicPages configuration. This package will populate the limitToPages with matching pages.
