How do I create a global stylesheets for headers and footers?

Hi All,

Can anybody please give me some advice how I can create CSS and JS assets which can be loaded as I need it on specific controllers. I was thinking of creating a Shared service then inside this shared service create my assets and use the $this-> function in my controller to load a particular stylesheet but how exactly do I do that?

I just want to minimize code duplication as much as possible.



Hi, @rewtor thanks for the link, I did follow the documentation but now I have a follow up question : 1. Where should i put the php file with the assets inside? Must it be in my /app folder? 2. How does it get loaded ( bootstrapped ) into my main app?

Kind Regards

As far as I can tell this is automatically loaded by Phalcon somewhere but I'm not too sure where in the documentation. Looking at the source: I can see that it's automatically loaded if you use Phalcon\DI\FactoryDefault();

You can add an asset anywhere that has acceess to the dependency injector by using either:


as described here

and just add either of the below in the bottom of your footer/layout and just make sure it's before </body>:

{{ assets.outputJs() }}
{{ assets.outputCss() }}

assets are css and js. You should put them in public folder. Also check here
