HowTo Manage a Big Number of Categories

Preface

The default Zed UI for the Category section comes in a form of a tree which is handy for managing nested categories, but impossible to use with a big number of categories. To cope with such cases, we've introduced a new Category section view in a form of a table where categories are listed, paginated and can be easily found by searching.

Installation

Perform the following steps to enable the view:

  1. Install the spryker/category-gui module by running the command:
  2. 
    composer require "spryker/category-gui":"^1.0.0"
  3. Once it's installed, configure the Zed navigation to point to the new page. Insert the following code snippet into config/Zed/navigation.xml:

    
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <config>
        <category>
            <label>Category</label>
            <title>Category</title>
            <bundle>category-gui</bundle>
            <controller>list</controller>
            <action>index</action>
            <order>0</order>
            <shortcut>c</shortcut>
            <icon>fa-sitemap</icon>
        </category>
    </config>
