you can inject in your block an instance of \Magento\Catalog\Model\CategoryFactory like this:

protected $categoryFactory;
public function __construct(
    \Magento\Catalog\Model\CategoryFactory $categoryFactory,
    $this->categoryFactory = $categoryFactory;

Then create this method in your block:

public function getCategory()
    $categoryId = $this->getCategoryId();
    $category = $this->categoryFactory->create()->load($categoryId);
    return $category;
public function getProductCollection()
     return $this->getCategory()->getProductCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('*'); 

Then you can use in the template this:

<?php foreach ($block->getProductCollection() as $product) : ?>
    <!-- do something with $product -->
<?php endforeach;?>

You should be able now to just add this to your homepage content

{{block class="Block\Class\Name\Here" category_id="5" template="path/to/template.phtml"}}
  • In implementing this solution i ran into the same problem posted about here: magento.stackexchange.com/questions/123374/… I'm adding this in so if others need further clarification on how to use this solution, they have one stop shopping.

  • @Marius is there any way to do it via the repository pattern i.e., via the service contracts provided by Magento? Mar 15 '20 at 5:43

You need to replace getProductsCollection() by getProductCollection() (without s)


I am using this

echo '('.$subcat->getProductCollection()->count().')';

foreach ($subcats as $subcat) { 
    if ($subcat->getIsActive()) {
        $_category = $objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\Category')->load($subcat->getId());
        $_imgUrl = $_category->getImageUrl(); 
        $subcat_url = $subcat->getUrl();
        // echo $qty = $subcat->getQty(); exit;
        $subcat_img = $store->getBaseUrl(\Magento\Framework\UrlInterface::URL_TYPE_MEDIA) . 'catalog/category/' . $subcat->getImage(); 
        $placeholder_img = "pub/media/placeholder.png";
        if($_imgUrl ==''){
            $_imgUrl = $store->getBaseUrl(\Magento\Framework\UrlInterface::URL_TYPE_MEDIA)."catalog/category/placeholder.png";
        <div class="col-sm-2 item-two">
            <a href="<?php echo $subcat_url; ?>">
                <div class="item-two-img">
                    <img src="<?php echo $_imgUrl; ?>" class="img-responsive"/>
                <p><?php echo $subcat->getName(); 
                    $subcat->getProductCollection()->count(); ?>
                    <span class="pro_quantity">
                        <?php echo '('.$subcat->getProductCollection()->count().')';?>
  • Never use objectmanager in your code. especially not in in your phtmls Sep 27 '19 at 13:32
  • What is the reason for not to use objectmanager in our code? Mar 16 '20 at 15:57

You can use addCategoriesFilter function. With this function you filter by several category ids.

First you need inject CollectionFactory:

protected $_productCollectionFactory;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productCollectionFactory,
    $this->_productCollectionFactory = $productCollectionFactory;

Then somewhere in the code:

public function getCollectionByCategoryId($id)
    $ids = [$id];
    $collection = $this->_productCollectionFactory->create();
    $collection->addCategoriesFilter(['in' => ids]);

    return $collection;

Better and more actual way to get products by category - via ProductRepository and built-in Filters (from Magento 2.2)

public function __construct(
    ProductRepositoryInterface $productRepository,
    SearchCriteriaBuilder $criteriaBuilder
) {
    $this->productRepository = $productRepository;
    $this->criteriaBuilder = $criteriaBuilder;

 * @return ProductInterface[]
public function getProducts(): array
    $categoryIdsToExport = $this->config->getCategoriesToExport();

    return $this->productRepository->getList(
            //It's Custom Filter from Magento_Catalog::di.xml
            ->addFilter('category_id', $categoryIdsToExport, 'in') 
            //Here you cat filter products in standart Magento way
            ->addFilter('status', \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Attribute\Source\Status::STATUS_ENABLED)
            ->addFilter('visibility', \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility::VISIBILITY_BOTH)

Unfortunately There are few info in stackexchange about "Search Criteria Unify Processing" - better and currently proper way to filter,sort models.

Here Magento doc about Search Criteria Unify Processing

Also you can register your own CustomFilter to filter products. See example in vendor/magento/module-catalog/etc/di.xml :

<virtualType name="Magento\Catalog\Model\Api\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\ProductFilterProcessor" type="Magento\Eav\Model\Api\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\FilterProcessor">
        <argument name="customFilters" xsi:type="array">
            <!-- You can specify your attribute and map a class to apply filter -->
            <item name="category_id" xsi:type="object">Magento\Catalog\Model\Api\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\FilterProcessor\ProductCategoryFilter</item>
            <item name="store" xsi:type="object">Magento\Catalog\Model\Api\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\FilterProcessor\ProductStoreFilter</item>
            <item name="store_id" xsi:type="object">Magento\Catalog\Model\Api\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\FilterProcessor\ProductStoreFilter</item>
            <item name="website_id" xsi:type="object">Magento\Catalog\Model\Api\SearchCriteria\CollectionProcessor\FilterProcessor\ProductWebsiteFilter</item>
