Breadcrumbs in general are automated. However they can be modified, disabled, and managed manually too.

To manage breadcrumbs you must first include the \Anomaly\Streams\Platform\Ui\Breadcrumb\BreadcrumbCollection class.

Adding Breadcrumbs

Use the add method to add a breadcrumb to the end of the collection.

$breadcrumbs = app(\Anomaly\Streams\Platform\Ui\Breadcrumb\BreadcrumbCollection::class);

$breadcrumbs->add('anomaly.module.products::breadcrumb.products', '/products');

Breadcrumbs are available as a property in controllers by default.{.tip}

<?php namespace Anomaly\ProductsModule\Http\Controller;

use Anomaly\ProductsModule\Category\Contract\CategoryRepositoryInterface;
use Anomaly\Streams\Platform\Http\Controller\PublicController;

class CategoriesController extends PublicController

     * View products within a category.
     * @param CategoryRepositoryInterface $categories
     * @return \Illuminate\Contracts\View\View
    public function view(CategoryRepositoryInterface $categories)
        $category = $categories->findByPath($this->route->getParameter('path'));


        $this->breadcrumbs->add($category->getName(), $this->url->make('anomaly.module.products::category', $category));

        return $this->view->make('anomaly.module.products::categories/view');

Displaying Breadcrumbs

You can use the breadcrumb plugin function to display breadcrumbs easily.

{{ breadcrumb() }}

The breadcrumb collection is loaded into the template super variable letting you display breadcrumbs manually as well.

<ol class="breadcrumb">
    {% for key, url in template.breadcrumbs %}

        {% if loop.last %}
            <li class="active">{{ trans(key) }}</li>
        {% else %}
            <li><a href="{{ url }}">{{ trans(key) }}</a></li>
        {% endif %}

    {% endfor %}
