3. Creating a Media Provider: A Vimeo Provider »

« 1. Installation

2. Helpers

The bundle comes with different helpers to render the thumbnail or the media itself. The thumbnail always represents the media’s image preview (i.e. the thumbnail of a flash video). And the media helper generates the media itself (i.e. the flash video).

2.1. PHP Usage

Render the thumbnail:

echo $view['sonata_media']->thumbnail($media, 'small');

// or

echo $view['sonata_media']->thumbnail($media, 'small', [
    'class' => 'myclass',

Render the media:

echo $view['sonata_media']->media($media, 'small');

// or

echo $view['sonata_media']->media($media, 'small', [
    'class' => 'myclass',

Render the path:

echo $view['sonata_media']->path($media, 'small');

2.2. Twig usage

Render the thumbnail:

{% thumbnail media, 'small' %}

{% thumbnail media, 'small' with {'class': 'myclass'} %}

Render the media:

{% media media, 'small' %}

{% media media, 'small' with {'class': 'myclass'} %}

Render the path:

{% path media, 'small' %}

Render the path to a context:

{% path media, 'reference' %}

2.3. Media helper for images

The media helper for the provider renders a responsive image tag with sensible defaults for srcset and sizes. The size configured will be the one used for the default fallback src.

To override the sizes to fit your particular design, just pass a sizes option to the helper.

{% media media, 'large' with {'sizes': '(min-width: 20em) 50vw, 100vw'} %}

To override the srcset attribute, just pass a srcset option to the helper. The option expects either a string or an array of formats.

{% media media, 'large' with {'srcset': ['small', 'big']} %}

To render the image as <picture> element instead of <img>, pass a picture key instead of srcset above:

{% media media, 'large' with {'picture': ['small', 'big']} %}

Media queries for <source> tags will default to a max-width equal to the image size. If you need to specify media queries explicitly, do so with an object as follows:

{% media media, 'large' with {'srcset': {'(max-width: 500px)': 'small', '(max-width: 1200px)': 'big'}} %}

The format parameter ('large' above) determines which size is going to be rendered as <img> inside the <picture> element.

2.4. Thumbnails for files

The provider does not generate thumbnails. This provider tries to display a default thumbnail by context and format.

The default thumbnail must be put in the web/uploads/media/media_bundle/images/<context-name>_<format-name>/ directory (be sure to replace <context-name> and <format-name>). The file must be called file.png and must comply with the size configured for this format.
