How to Get Current Category in Magento 2

If you are finding a way to get current category in magento 2 then you are in a right place. This article is all about what you are looking for.

I assume that you already have module. So, first you need to create one block file, if you already have it then use that block and paste the below code.

namespace Devhooks\Module\Block; class Module extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template { protected $registry; public function __construct( \Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context $context, \Magento\Framework\Registry $registry, array $data = [] ) { $this->registry = $registry; parent::__construct($context, $data); } public function getCurrentCategory() { return $this->_registry->registry('current_category'); } }

In above code we have used \Magento\Framework\Registry Magento registry to get current category. Now, we'll get that on our .phtml file.

if ($currentProduct = $block->getCurrentCategory()) { echo $currentCategory->getName() . '<br />'; }

In above code we have echo Name attributes but you can get it all other as well.

Finally, we are done, let's flush or refresh cache and test the result.

That’s it.
