In app/design/frontend/MyCompany/mytheme/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list/items.phtml please add below code :

<?php if($_item->getTypeId() == \Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Model\Product\Type\Configurable::TYPE_CODE){

 $swatchBlock = $this->getLayout()->createBlock("Magento\Swatches\Block\Product\Renderer\Listing\Configurable")->setTemplate("Magento_Swatches::product/listing/renderer.phtml");
   echo $swatchBlock->setProduct($_item)->toHtml();                           
} ?>

  • above code only brings a options in related product list. -> to get selected option array in post you have create 2D array like $option[1][141] =red , here 1 is product id And 141 is attribute id of color. Sep 25, 2018 at 3:50

In 2.2.5 we're doing the following to achieve the swatches, essentially it replicates the code from the Mage_Catalog::product/list.phtml template where swatches are by default.

Firstly you need to add the swatch renderers to the block via the layout XML for the catalog_product_view layout handle.

In app/design/frontend/MyCompany/mytheme/Magento_Swatches/layout/catalog_product_view.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <css src="Magento_Swatches::css/swatches.css"/>
        <referenceBlock name="catalog.product.related">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\RendererList" name="related.product.type.details.renderers" as="details.renderers">
                <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" as="default"/>
                <block class="Magento\Swatches\Block\Product\Renderer\Listing\Configurable" as="configurable" template="Magento_Swatches::product/listing/renderer.phtml" />

Then override the Magneto_Catalog::product/list/items.phtml file by creating your own in app/design/frontend/MyCompany/mytheme/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list/items.phtml with the below modifications:

  1. Just below the opening PHP tags use Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action;

  2. Load the post data and json helpers just before the main switch:

    $postDataHelper = $this->helper('Magento\Framework\Data\Helper\PostHelper');
    $jsonHelper = $this->helper('Magento\Framework\Json\Helper\Data');
  3. Replace the add to cart method, adding the form so product can be added via AJAX inside your product actions:

    <?php if ($_item->isSaleable()): ?>
            $postData = $postDataHelper->getPostData($block->getAddToCartUrl($_item), ['product' => $_item->getEntityId()]);
            $postParams = $jsonHelper->jsonDecode($postData);
        <form data-role="tocart-form" data-product-sku="<?= $block->escapeHtml($_item->getSku()) ?>" action="<?= /* @NoEscape */ $postParams['action'] ?>" method="post">
            <input type="hidden" name="product" value="<?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $postParams['data']['product'] ?>">
            <input type="hidden" name="<?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ Action::PARAM_NAME_URL_ENCODED ?>" value="<?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $postParams['data'][Action::PARAM_NAME_URL_ENCODED] ?>">
            <?= $block->getBlockHtml('formkey') ?>
            <button type="submit"
                    title="<?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Add to Cart')) ?>"
                    class="action tocart primary">
                <span><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ __('Add to Cart') ?></span>
    <?php endif; ?>
  4. Then just before the closing if statement add the JS to not redirect to cart if the config for it is disabled:

      <?php if (!$block->isRedirectToCartEnabled()) : ?>
            <script type="text/x-magento-init">
                "[data-role=tocart-form], .form.map.checkout": {
                    "catalogAddToCart": {
                        "product_sku": "<?= /* @NoEscape */ $_item->getSku() ?>"
        <?php endif; ?>

In the end you should see swatches being rendered and able to add products via AJAX.

  • Is it possible to do this same thing with crosssell's on the product detail page? I have created the block inside of the Product Detail Page, and the crosssell products are now showing up appropriately, but I can't seem to get the swatches to render. I think it is because I need to change the catalog_product_view.xml referenceBlock.

To display Swatches along with the product name, thumbnail, etc, just like on the Category product lists, I did this in my Theme:

  1. Create this file:


Add this content (almost the same as the catalog_category_view one), so the Swatch renderer template is available on the Product View page:

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <css src="Magento_Swatches::css/swatches.css"/>
    <referenceBlock name="related.product.type.details.renderers">
        <block class="Magento\Swatches\Block\Product\Renderer\Listing\Configurable" as="configurable" template="Magento_Swatches::product/listing/renderer.phtml" ifconfig="catalog/frontend/show_swatches_in_product_list" />
  1. In this file:


Add the related.product.type.details.renderers to the catalog.product.related` , like so:

<block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ProductList\Related" name="catalog.product.related" template="Magento_Catalog::product/list/items.phtml" group="detailed_info">
    <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\RendererList" name="related.product.type.details.renderers" as="details.renderers">
        <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" as="default"/>
  1. Then update the items.phtml template:


And echo the getProductDetailsHtml() output where you want. For instance:

<div class="product details product-item-details">
  <?php echo $block->getProductDetailsHtml($_item); ?>
  • It doesn't work for me. After applying this whole related block disappear. Feb 5, 2020 at 9:36
<?php/***********Display Brand Attribute************/?>

                $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
                $category = $objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\Registry')->registry('current_category');//get current category

                $brand_value = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('manufacturer')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);
                $brand_id = $_product->getManufacturer();
                $curnt_cat_url = $category->getUrl();
                $brandId = '?manufacturer='.$brand_id;

                $om = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
                $swatchCollection = $om->create('Magento\Swatches\Model\ResourceModel\Swatch\Collection');
                $ThumbImage =  $swatchHelper->getSwatchAttributeImage('swatch_thumb', $item->getValue());
                $SwatchImage = $swatchHelper->getSwatchAttributeImage('swatch_image', $item->getValue());


                <div class="brand_bg">
                    <a href="<?php echo $curnt_cat_url.$brandId ?>"><img src="<?php echo $SwatchImage; ?>"></a>
            <?php } ?>
            <?php/***********End Brand Attribute************/?>
