Hi @Joe Gaffney. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The <Breadcrumb /> component in Refine is designed to display the current location within a hierarchy, allowing users to navigate back to higher states in the hierarchy. It uses the useBreadcrumb hook to achieve this functionality. Here's an example of how you can use it in your application:
import { Show, Breadcrumb } from "@refinedev/mantine";

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
breadcrumb={<Breadcrumb />}
>
<p>Content of your show page...</p>
</Show>
);
};
import { Show, Breadcrumb } from "@refinedev/mantine";

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
breadcrumb={<Breadcrumb />}
>
<p>Content of your show page...</p>
</Show>
);
};
In this example, the <Breadcrumb /> component is used within the <Show /> component. It will automatically display the current location based on the route defined in your application. You can also customize the breadcrumb by using the breadcrumb property. Here's an example:
import { Show } from "@refinedev/mantine";

const CustomBreadcrumb: React.FC = () => {
return (
<p
style={{
padding: "3px 6px",
border: "2px dashed cornflowerblue",
}}
>
My Custom Breadcrumb
</p>
);
};

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
breadcrumb={<CustomBreadcrumb />}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
);
};
import { Show } from "@refinedev/mantine";

const CustomBreadcrumb: React.FC = () => {
return (
<p
style={{
padding: "3px 6px",
border: "2px dashed cornflowerblue",
}}
>
My Custom Breadcrumb
</p>
);
};

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
breadcrumb={<CustomBreadcrumb />}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
);
};
In this example, a custom breadcrumb component is created and used in the <Show /> component. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/ui-integrations/mantine/components/breadcrumb/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can customize the breadcrumb to show the current page even if it's the base page of a route. By default, Refine's <Breadcrumb /> component doesn't render if there's only one level in the hierarchy (i.e., you're on the base page of a route). However, you can swizzle the component to change this behavior. Here's an example of how you can swizzle the breadcrumb component to always show the current page:
import { useBreadcrumb } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Link } from "react-router-dom";
import { BreadCrumb } from "primereact/breadcrumb";
import { MenuItem } from "primereact/menuitem";
import { classNames } from "primereact/utils";

export const Breadcrumb = () => {
const { breadcrumbs } = useBreadcrumb();

const items: MenuItem[] = breadcrumbs.map((breadcrumb) => ({
label: breadcrumb.label,
icon: breadcrumb.icon,
template: (item, options) => {
return breadcrumb.href ? (
<Link to={breadcrumb.href} className={classNames("text-color", options.className)}>
{item.icon}
<span className={classNames("ml-2 ", options.labelClassName)}>{item.label}</span>
</Link>
) : (
<span className={options.className}>
<span className={options.labelClassName}>{item.label}</span>
</span>
);
},
}));

return <BreadCrumb className="surface-ground pl-0 border-none" model={items} />;
};
import { useBreadcrumb } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Link } from "react-router-dom";
import { BreadCrumb } from "primereact/breadcrumb";
import { MenuItem } from "primereact/menuitem";
import { classNames } from "primereact/utils";

export const Breadcrumb = () => {
const { breadcrumbs } = useBreadcrumb();

const items: MenuItem[] = breadcrumbs.map((breadcrumb) => ({
label: breadcrumb.label,
icon: breadcrumb.icon,
template: (item, options) => {
return breadcrumb.href ? (
<Link to={breadcrumb.href} className={classNames("text-color", options.className)}>
{item.icon}
<span className={classNames("ml-2 ", options.labelClassName)}>{item.label}</span>
</Link>
) : (
<span className={options.className}>
<span className={options.labelClassName}>{item.label}</span>
</span>
);
},
}));

return <BreadCrumb className="surface-ground pl-0 border-none" model={items} />;
};
In this example, the useBreadcrumb hook is used to get the breadcrumb items according to the resources defined in the <Refine /> component. The breadcrumb items are then mapped to create a list of MenuItem components, which are rendered inside the BreadCrumb component from PrimeReact. The condition to not render the breadcrumb if there's only one level has been removed, so the breadcrumb will always be displayed. For more information on how to swizzle components in Refine, you can refer to the Refine CLI documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/list-of-packages/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai what is swizzle
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Swizzle is a command in Refine's CLI that allows you to customize Refine’s supported components and data providers. It lets you eject selected files from the Refine packages and modify them depending on your needs. This can be particularly useful when the built-in data providers or components do not fully meet your requirements. The term "swizzling" comes from Objective-C and Swift-UI, where it refers to the process of changing the implementation of an existing method. In the context of Refine, swizzling means providing an alternative component that will be used instead of the default one. You can think of it as Monkey Patching for React components, which allows you to change the default implementation. To use the swizzle command, you run it in your project directory, select the package and the component or data provider you want to swizzle, and the necessary files will be copied to a specified folder in your project. You can then customize these files as you wish. Here's an example of how to use the swizzle command:
npm run refine swizzle
npm run refine swizzle
Then select the package and component/data provider you want to swizzle. Please note that swizzling is a one-way operation. Once you swizzle a component or provider, you'll be responsible for keeping it up to date and fixing any issues that arise from the changes you've made. For more information, you can refer to the Refine CLI documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/list-of-packages/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
