 * @section sec_overview Overview and terminology
14 15 16
 * The menu system uses routes; see the
 * @link routing Routing API topic @endlink for more information. It is used
 * for navigation menus, local tasks, local actions, and contextual links:
17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
 * - Navigation menus are hierarchies of menu links; links point to routes or
 *   URLs.
 * - Menu links and their hierarchies can be defined by Drupal subsystems
 *   and modules, or created in the user interface using the Menu UI module.
 * - Local tasks are groups of related routes. Local tasks are usually rendered
 *   as a group of tabs.
 * - Local actions are used for operations such as adding a new item on a page
 *   that lists items of some type. Local actions are usually rendered as
 *   buttons.
 * - Contextual links are actions that are related to sections of rendered
 *   output, and are usually rendered as a pop-up list of links. The
 *   Contextual Links module handles the gathering and rendering of contextual
 *   links.
 *
31 32
 * The following sections of this topic provide an overview of the menu API.
 * For more detailed information, see

 * https://www.drupal.org/developing/api/8/menu
 *
 * @section sec_links Defining menu links for the administrative menu
 * Routes for administrative tasks can be added to the main Drupal
 * administrative menu hierarchy. To do this, add lines like the following to a
 * module_name.links.menu.yml file (in the top-level directory for your module):
 * @code
 * dblog.overview:
 *   title: 'Recent log messages'
 *   parent: system.admin_reports
 *   description: 'View events that have recently been logged.'
 *   route_name: dblog.overview
45 46 47
 *   options:
 *     query:
 *       uid: 1
48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55
 *   weight: -1
 * @endcode
 * Some notes:
 * - The first line is the machine name for your menu link, which usually
 *   matches the machine name of the route (given in the 'route_name' line).
 * - parent: The machine name of the menu link that is the parent in the
 *   administrative hierarchy. See system.links.menu.yml to find the main
 *   skeleton of the hierarchy.
56 57 58
 * - options: Define additional route options such as query parameters. See
 *   https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/api/menu-api/providing-module-defined-menu-links
 *   for more information.

 * - weight: Lower (negative) numbers come before higher (positive) numbers,
 *   for menu items with the same parent.
 *
 * Discovered menu links from other modules can be altered using
 * hook_menu_links_discovered_alter().
 *
 * @todo Derivatives will probably be defined for these; when they are, add
 *   documentation here.
 *
 * @section sec_tasks Defining groups of local tasks (tabs)
 * Local tasks appear as tabs on a page when there are at least two defined for
 * a route, including the base route as the main tab, and additional routes as
 * other tabs. Static local tasks can be defined by adding lines like the
 * following to a module_name.links.task.yml file (in the top-level directory
 * for your module):
 * @code
 * book.admin:
 *   route_name: book.admin
 *   title: 'List'
 *   base_route: book.admin
 * book.settings:
 *   route_name: book.settings
 *   title: 'Settings'
 *   base_route: book.admin
 *   weight: 100
 * @endcode
 * Some notes:
 * - The first line is the machine name for your local task, which usually
 *   matches the machine name of the route (given in the 'route_name' line).
 * - base_route: The machine name of the main task (tab) for the set of local
 *   tasks.
 * - weight: Lower (negative) numbers come before higher (positive) numbers,
 *   for tasks on the same base route. If there is a tab whose route
 *   matches the base route, that will be the default/first tab shown.
 *
 * Local tasks from other modules can be altered using
 * hook_menu_local_tasks_alter().
 *
 * @todo Derivatives are in flux for these; when they are more stable, add
 *   documentation here.
 *
 * @section sec_actions Defining local actions for routes
 * Local actions can be defined for operations related to a given route. For
 * instance, adding content is a common operation for the content management
 * page, so it should be a local action. Static local actions can be
 * defined by adding lines like the following to a
 * module_name.links.action.yml file (in the top-level directory for your
 * module):
 * @code
 * node.add_page:
 *   route_name: node.add_page
 *   title: 'Add content'
 *   appears_on:
 *     - system.admin_content
 * @endcode
 * Some notes:
 * - The first line is the machine name for your local action, which usually
 *   matches the machine name of the route (given in the 'route_name' line).
 * - appears_on: Machine names of one or more routes that this local task
 *   should appear on.
 *
 * Local actions from other modules can be altered using
 * hook_menu_local_actions_alter().
 *
 * @todo Derivatives are in flux for these; when they are more stable, add
 *   documentation here.
 *
 * @section sec_contextual Defining contextual links
 * Contextual links are displayed by the Contextual Links module for user
 * interface elements whose render arrays have a '#contextual_links' element
 * defined. For example, a block render array might look like this, in part:
 * @code
 * array(
 *   '#contextual_links' => array(
 *     'block' => array(
 *       'route_parameters' => array('block' => $entity->id()),
 *     ),
 *   ),
 * @endcode
 * In this array, the outer key 'block' defines a "group" for contextual
 * links, and the inner array provides values for the route's placeholder
 * parameters (see @ref sec_placeholders above).
 *
 * To declare that a defined route should be a contextual link for a
 * contextual links group, put lines like the following in a
 * module_name.links.contextual.yml file (in the top-level directory for your
 * module):
 * @code
 * block_configure:
 *   title: 'Configure block'
 *   route_name: 'entity.block.edit_form'
 *   group: 'block'
 * @endcode
 * Some notes:
 * - The first line is the machine name for your contextual link, which usually
 *   matches the machine name of the route (given in the 'route_name' line).
 * - group: This needs to match the link group defined in the render array.
 *
 * Contextual links from other modules can be altered using
 * hook_contextual_links_alter().
 *
 * @todo Derivatives are in flux for these; when they are more stable, add
 *   documentation here.
 *
 * @section sec_rendering Rendering menus
 * Once you have created menus (that contain menu links), you want to render
 * them. Drupal provides a block (Drupal\system\Plugin\Block\SystemMenuBlock) to
 * do so.
 *
 * However, perhaps you have more advanced needs and you're not satisfied with
 * what the menu blocks offer you. If that's the case, you'll want to:
 * - Instantiate \Drupal\Core\Menu\MenuTreeParameters, and set its values to
 *   match your needs. Alternatively, you can use
 *   MenuLinkTree::getCurrentRouteMenuTreeParameters() to get a typical
 *   default set of parameters, and then customize them to suit your needs.
 * - Call \Drupal\Core\MenuLinkTree::load() with your menu link tree parameters,
 *   this will return a menu link tree.
 * - Pass the menu tree to \Drupal\Core\Menu\MenuLinkTree::transform() to apply
 *   menu link tree manipulators that transform the tree. You will almost always
 *   want to apply access checking. The manipulators that you will typically
179
 *   need can be found in \Drupal\Core\Menu\DefaultMenuLinkTreeManipulators.
180
 * - Potentially write a custom menu tree manipulator, see
181 182 183
 *   \Drupal\Core\Menu\DefaultMenuLinkTreeManipulators for examples. This is
 *   only necessary if you want to do things like adding extra metadata to
 *   rendered links to display icons next to them.
184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209
 * - Pass the menu tree to \Drupal\Core\Menu\MenuLinkTree::build(), this will
 *   build a renderable array.
 *
 * Combined, that would look like this:
 * @code
 * $menu_tree = \Drupal::menuTree();
 * $menu_name = 'my_menu';
 *
 * // Build the typical default set of menu tree parameters.
 * $parameters = $menu_tree->getCurrentRouteMenuTreeParameters($menu_name);
 *
 * // Load the tree based on this set of parameters.
 * $tree = $menu_tree->load($menu_name, $parameters);
 *
 * // Transform the tree using the manipulators you want.
 * $manipulators = array(
 *   // Only show links that are accessible for the current user.
 *   array('callable' => 'menu.default_tree_manipulators:checkAccess'),
 *   // Use the default sorting of menu links.
 *   array('callable' => 'menu.default_tree_manipulators:generateIndexAndSort'),
 * );
 * $tree = $menu_tree->transform($tree, $manipulators);
 *
 * // Finally, build a renderable array from the transformed tree.
 * $menu = $menu_tree->build($tree);
 *
210
 * $menu_html = \Drupal::service('renderer')->render($menu);
211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240 241 242

/**
 * Alters all the menu links discovered by the menu link plugin manager.
 *
 * @param array $links
 *   The link definitions to be altered.
 *
 * @return array
 *   An array of discovered menu links. Each link has a key that is the machine
 *   name, which must be unique. By default, use the route name as the
 *   machine name. In cases where multiple links use the same route name, such
 *   as two links to the same page in different menus, or two links using the
 *   same route name but different route parameters, the suggested machine name
 *   patten is the route name followed by a dot and a unique suffix. For
 *   example, an additional logout link might have a machine name of
 *   user.logout.navigation, and default links provided to edit the article and
 *   page content types could use machine names
 *   entity.node_type.edit_form.article and entity.node_type.edit_form.page.
 *   Since the machine name may be arbitrary, you should never write code that
 *   assumes it is identical to the route name.
 *
 *   The value corresponding to each machine name key is an associative array
 *   that may contain the following key-value pairs:
243
 *   - title: (required) The title of the menu link. If this should be
244
 *     translated, create a \Drupal\Core\StringTranslation\TranslatableMarkup
245 246
 *     object.
 *   - description: The description of the link. If this should be
247
 *     translated, create a \Drupal\Core\StringTranslation\TranslatableMarkup
248
 *     object.
249
 *   - route_name: (optional) The route name to be used to build the path.
250
 *     Either the route_name or url element must be provided.
251
 *   - route_parameters: (optional) The route parameters to build the path.
252 253
 *   - url: (optional) If you have an external link use this element instead of
 *     providing route_name.
254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264
 *   - parent: (optional) The machine name of the link that is this link's menu
 *     parent.
 *   - weight: (optional) An integer that determines the relative position of
 *     items in the menu; higher-weighted items sink. Defaults to 0. Menu items
 *     with the same weight are ordered alphabetically.
 *   - menu_name: (optional) The machine name of a menu to put the link in, if
 *     not the default Tools menu.
 *   - expanded: (optional) If set to TRUE, and if a menu link is provided for
 *     this menu item (as a result of other properties), then the menu link is
 *     always expanded, equivalent to its 'always expanded' checkbox being set
 *     in the UI.
265 266 267
 *   - options: (optional) An array of options to be passed to
 *     \Drupal\Core\Utility\LinkGeneratorInterface::generate() when generating
 *     a link from this menu item.

 *   - url: The \Drupal\Core\Url object.
 *   - options: An associative array of additional options that will be passed

 *     \Drupal\Core\Routing\UrlGenerator::generateFromRoute() to generate the
 *     href attribute for this link, and also used when generating the link.
 *     Defaults to an empty array. It may contain the following elements:
 *     - 'query': An array of query key/value-pairs (without any URL-encoding) to
 *       append to the URL.
 *     - absolute: Whether to force the output to be an absolute link (beginning
 *       with http:). Useful for links that will be displayed outside the site,
 *       such as in an RSS feed. Defaults to FALSE.
 *     - language: An optional language object. May affect the rendering of
