Bundle to use Pagerfanta with Symfony.

Note: If you are using a 2.0.x release of Symfony2, please use the symfony2.0 branch of this bundle. The master branch of this bundle tracks the Symfony master branch.

The bundle includes:

  • Twig function to render pagerfantas with views and options.
  • Way to use easily views.
  • Way to reuse options in views.
  • Basic CSS for the DefaultView.


  1. Use Composer to download the library
php composer.phar require white-october/pagerfanta-bundle
  1. Then add the WhiteOctoberPagerfantaBundle to your application:

In Symfony < 4:

// app/AppKernel.php
public function registerBundles()
    return array(
        // ...
        new WhiteOctober\PagerfantaBundle\WhiteOctoberPagerfantaBundle(),
        // ...

In Symfony 4 with Symfony Flex this will be done automatically for you.

  1. Configure and use things!

A) Creating a Pager is shown on the Pagerfanta documentation. If you're using the Doctrine ORM, you'll want to use the DoctrineORMAdapter

B) Rendering in Twig is shown below in the Rendering Pagerfantas section.

C) Configuration is shown through this document

Rendering Pagerfantas

First, you'll need to pass an instance of Pagerfanta as a parameter into your template. For example:

$adapter = new DoctrineORMAdapter($queryBuilder);
$pagerfanta = new Pagerfanta($adapter);
return $this->render('@YourApp/Main/example.html.twig', [
    'my_pager' => $pagerfanta,

You then call the the Pagerfanta Twig extension, passing in the Pagerfanta instance. The routes are generated automatically for the current route using the variable "page" to propagate the page number. By default, the bundle uses the DefaultView with the default name. The default syntax is:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager) }}

By default, the "page" variable is also added for the link to the first page. To disable the generation of ?page=1 in the url, simply set the omitFirstPage option to true when calling the pagerfanta twig function:

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default', { 'omitFirstPage': true}) }}

You can omit template parameter to make function call shorter, default template will be used:

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, { 'omitFirstPage': true }) }}

If you have multiple pagers on one page, you'll need to change the name of the page parameter. Here's an example:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_other_pager, 'default', {'pageParameter': '[page_other]'}) }}

Note the square brackets around page_other; this won't work without them.

Twitter Bootstrap

The bundle also has a Twitter Bootstrap view.

For Bootstrap 2:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap') }}

For Bootstrap 3:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap3') }}

For Bootstrap 4:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap4') }}

Custom template

If you want to use a custom template, add another argument:

<div class="pagerfanta">
    {{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'my_template') }}

With options:

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default', { 'proximity': 2}) }}

See the Pagerfanta documentation for the list of possible parameters.

Rendering the page of items itself

The items can be retrieved using currentPageResults. For example:

{% for item in my_pager.currentPageResults %}
        <li>{{ item.id }}</li>
{% endfor %}

Translate in your language

The bundle also offers two views to translate the default and the twitter bootstrap views.

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'default_translated') }}

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'twitter_bootstrap_translated') }}

Adding Views

The views are added to the container with the pagerfanta.view tag:


<service id="pagerfanta.view.default" class="Pagerfanta\View\DefaultView" public="false">
    <tag name="pagerfanta.view" alias="default" />


        class: Pagerfanta\View\DefaultView
        public: false
        tags: [{ name: pagerfanta.view, alias: default }]

Reusing Options

Sometimes you want to reuse options of a view in your project, and you don't want to write them all the times you render a view, or you can have different configurations for a view and you want to save them in a place to be able to change them easily.

For this you have to define views with the special view OptionableView:

        class: Pagerfanta\View\OptionableView
            - @pagerfanta.view.default
            - { proximity: 2, prev_message: Anterior, next_message: Siguiente }
        public: false
        tags: [{ name: pagerfanta.view, alias: my_view_1 }]
        class: Pagerfanta\View\OptionableView
            - @pagerfanta.view.default
            - { proximity: 5 }
        public: false
        tags: [{ name: pagerfanta.view, alias: my_view_2 }]

And using then:

{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'my_view_1') }}
{{ pagerfanta(my_pager, 'my_view_2') }}

The easiest way to render pagerfantas (or paginators!) ;)

Basic CSS for the default view

The bundles comes with basic CSS for the default view so you can get started with a good paginator faster. Of course you can change it, use another one or create your own view.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ asset('bundles/whiteoctoberpagerfanta/css/pagerfantaDefault.css') }}" type="text/css" media="all" />


It's possible to configure the default view for all rendering in your configuration file:

    default_view: my_view_1

Making bad page numbers return a HTTP 500

Right now when the page is out of range or not a number, the server returns a 404 response by default. You can set the following parameters to different than default value to_http_not_found (ie. null) to show a 500 exception when the requested page is not valid instead.

// app/config/config.yml
        out_of_range_page:        ~
        not_valid_current_page:   ~
