How do you register custom view helpers when using laminas-view?
If you've selected laminas-view as your preferred template renderer, you may want to define and use custom view helpers. How can you use them?
Assuming you've used the Mezzio skeleton to start your application, you will
already have a factory defined for
Laminas\View\HelperPluginManager, and it will
be injected into the
PhpRenderer instance used. Since the
is available, we can configure it.
Open the file
config/autoload/templates.global.php. In that file, you'll see
three top-level keys:
return [ 'dependencies' => [ /* ... */ ], 'templates' => [ /* ... */ ], 'view_helpers' => [ /* ... */ ], ];
The last is the one you want. In this, you can define service mappings, including aliases, invokables, factories, and abstract factories to define how helpers are named and created. See the laminas-view custom helpers documentation for information on how to populate this configuration.
