Ngx-Breadcrumbs

An Angular (4+) module generating breadcrumbs based on the routing state.

Installation

# install via npm 
$ npm --save install ngx-breadcrumbs
# install via yarn 
$ yarn add ngx-breadcrumbs

Usage

Import the McBreadcrumbsModule in your root module (app.module.ts) after importing the router module.

import { RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { McBreadcrumbsModule } from 'ngx-breadcrumbs';
 
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    RouterModule.forRoot(myRoutes),
    McBreadcrumbsModule.forRoot()
  ],  
})
export class AppModule {}

Place the mc-breadcrumbs component, which will render the breadcrumbs, somewhere in your markup.

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `
    <div class="container">
      <mc-breadcrumbs></mc-breadcrumbs>
      <router-outlet></router-outlet>
    </div>`
})
export class AppComponent {}

Usage of the mc-breadcrumbs render component is optional. If a different markup output is desired, a custom component can be created that subscribes to the McBreadcrumbsService.crumbs$ observable.

Routing Configuration

Breadcrumbs links are generated based on the route configuration. If a route entry contains a data.breadcrumbs property the breadcrumbs service assumes breadcrumbs should be created whenever this route or one its child routes are active.

const myRoutes : Route[] = {
  {
    path: '',
    component: HomeComponent,
    data: {
      // Uses static text (Home)
      breadcrumbs: 'Home' 
    }
  },
  {
    path: 'about',
    component: AboutComponent,
    data: {
      // Uses last urlfragment (about) as text
      breadcrumbs: true 
    }
  },
  {
    path: 'person',
    data: {
      // Uses text property (Person)
      breadcrumbs: true,
      text: 'Person'
    },
    children: [
      {
          path: '',
          component: PersonListComponent
      },
      {
          path: ':id',
          component: PersonDetailComponent,
          data: {
            // Interpolates values resolved by the router 
            breadcrumbs: '{{ person.name }}'
          },
          resolve: {
            person: PersonResolver
          }
      } 
    ]
  },    
  {
    path: 'folder',
    data: {
      // Uses static text 'Folder'
      breadcrumbs: 'Folder'
    },
    children: [
      {
      path: '',
      component: FolderComponent
      },
      {
        path: ':id',
        component: FolderComponent,
        data: {
          // Resolves the breadcrumbs for this route by
          // implementing a McBreadcrumbsResolver class.
          breadcrumbs: FolderBreadcrumbsResolver
        }
      }
    ]
  }
};

API

IBreadcrumb

The IBreadcrumb interface defines the properties of the breadcrumb items.

export interface IBreadcrumb {
  textstring,  // The text to display 
  pathstring   // The associated path
}

McBreadcrumbsComponent

The component simply renders the list of the IBreadcrumb items provided by the McBreadcrumbsService. The HTML output matches that of Bootstrap 4 markup.

A custom breadcrumb component is easily created by injecting the breadcrumb service and iterating over the breadcrumb items.

McBreadcrumbsService

The service has one public property crumbs$. It's an observable stream of IBreadcrumb[], which is updated after each route change.

McBreadcrumbsResolver

If needed, a custom resolver can be implemented which is activated whenever a certain route becomes active. This can be useful whenever the route configuration cannot match the desired breadcrumb hierachy.

The signature of the resolver implements Resolve<T> from the Angular Router and needs to resolve an array of IBreadcrumb items.

To associate a route with a certain resolver, it breadcrumbs data property in the route configuration should point to the resolver:

const myRoutes = [
  {
    path: 'somepath',
    component: SomeComponent,
    data: {
      breadcrumbs: MyBreadcrumbsResolver
    }
  }
];
Members
// Should resolve zero or more IBreadcrumb items.
function resolve(route: ActivatedRouteSnapshot, state: RouterStateSnapshot)
  : Observable<T>|Promise<T>|T 
// Helper function that returns the full path for the provided route snapshot.
function getFullPath(route: ActivatedRouteSnapshot) 
  : string
Example
@Injectable()
export class MyBreadcrumbsResolver inherits McBreadcrumbsResolver {
 
  // Optional: inject any required dependencies
  constructor(private myService: MyService) {}
 
  resolve(route: ActivatedRouteSnapshot, state: RouterStateSnapshot) {
    
    const myFolderId = route.params.id;
    const myCrumbs = 
      this.myService.getFolders(myFolderId)
                    .map((folder) => ({
                      text: folder.title,
                      path: super.getFullPath(route.parent) + '/' + folder.id
                    });
 
    // Note: the resolve method can return any of the following types:
    //
    //   * IBreadcrumb[]
    //   * Observable<IBreadcrumb[]>
    //   * Promise<IBreadcrumb>
 
    return myCrumbs; 
  }
}

McBreadcrumbsConfig

The configuration of the breadcrumbs module.

Members

postProcess

Callback function with the following signature:

function (crumbs: IBreadcrumb[]) : Promise<IBreadcrumb[]> | Observable<IBreadcrumb[]> | IBreadcrumb[];

Can be used to make custom changes to the breadcrumb array after the service has constructed the breadcrumb trail.

Example:

@NgModule({
  /* ... */
})
export class AppModule {
  constructor(breadcrumbsConfig: McBreadcrumbsConfig) {
 
    breadcrumbsConfig.postProcess = (x) => {
 
      // Ensure that the first breadcrumb always points to home
 
      let y = x;
 
      if(x.length && x[0].text !== 'Home') {
        y = [
          {
            text: 'Home',
            path: ''
          }
        ].concat(x);
      }
 
      return y;
    };
  }
}
