Twig Question

How to get the current user in twig extension service [symfony2.8]

I'm trying to get the current

user
in my
NotificationExtension.php
. But the page become very slow to load and I also get this error:


Error: Call to a member function getUser() on null


The error say that is impossible to get the current user, but i'm login.

This is my service:

notification:
class: Application\Sonata\UserBundle\Twig\NotificationExtension
arguments: ['@doctrine.orm.entity_manager', '@service_container', '@security.context']
tags:
- { name: twig.extension }


NotificationExtension :

<?php

namespace Application\Sonata\UserBundle\Twig;

use Doctrine\ORM\EntityManager;
use Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Authentication\Token\Storage\TokenStorage;
use Twig_Extension;
use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Security\Core\SecurityContext;
use Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Security;

class NotificationExtension extends \Twig_Extension
{
protected $container;
protected $em;

public function __construct(EntityManager $em,ContainerInterface $container, SecurityContext $context)
{
$this->container = $container;
$this->em = $em;
$this->doctrine = $container->get('doctrine');
$this->context = $context;
}

public function getGlobals()
{
$user = $this->container->get('security.context')->getToken()->getUser();

return(array(

'unreadMessagesCount' => $this->em->getRepository('ApplicationSonataUserBundle:Notif')->findBy(
array(
'user' => $user,
'seen' => true
),
array('date' => 'DESC')
)));
}

public function getName()
{
return 'notification';
}
}


ADD:

service:

notification:
class: Application\Sonata\UserBundle\Twig\NotificationExtension
arguments: ['@doctrine.orm.entity_manager','@security.token_storage']
tags:
- { name: twig.extension }


get current user:

public function getUser()
{
return $this->tokenStorage->getToken()->getUser();
}

Answer

Define instead a service as a global Twig variable:

# app/config/config.yml
twig:
    # ...
    globals:
        user_notification: '@app.user_notification'

The service class:

// src/AppBundle/Twig/Globals/UserNotification.php

class UserNotification
{
    private $tokenStorage;
    // ...

    public function __construct(TokenStorageInterface $tokenStorage, ...)
    {
        $this->tokenStorage = $tokenStorage;
        // ...
    }

    public function getUnreadMessages()
    {
        if (null === $token = $this->tokenStorage->getToken()) {
            return array();
        }

        $user = $token->getUser();

        // $unreadMessages = <DB query for get the unread messages from current user>

        return $unreadMessages;
    }
}

The service definition:

# app/config/config.yml

services:
    app.user_notification:
        class: AppBundle\Twig\Globals\UserNotification
        arguments: ['@security.token_storage', ...]

Finally, for all templates you can to use this service:

# foo.html.twig

{{ user_notification.unreadMessages|length }}

Whenever the global variable is accessed in the template, the service will be requested from the service container and you get access to that object.
