Best Symfony Tutorials for Beginners

  1. 1. Best​ ​Symfony​ ​Tutorials​ ​for​ ​Beginners For​ ​more​ ​symfony​ ​tutorials:​ ​​ Why​ ​Choose​ ​Symfony​ ​for​ ​Web​ ​Development? Symfony​ ​is​ ​a​ ​perfect​ ​choice​ ​for​ ​systematic​ ​and​ ​scalable​ ​web​ ​and​ ​app​ ​development​ ​project because​ ​of​ ​its​ ​familiar​ ​MVC​ ​type​ ​architecture.​ ​Due​ ​to​ ​its​ ​MVC​ ​nature,​ ​Symfony​ ​has​ ​an organized​ ​file​ ​structure​ ​distributed​ ​according​ ​to​ ​Model,​ ​View​ ​and​ ​Controller. The​ ​Model​ ​in​ ​MVC​ ​can​ ​be​ ​described​ ​as​ ​the​ ​business​ ​logic​ ​of​ ​the​ ​application,​ ​while​ ​View​ ​renders that​ ​Model​ ​into​ ​something​ ​that​ ​visible,​ ​like​ ​a​ ​web​ ​page.​ ​The​ ​Controller​ ​acts​ ​according​ ​to​ ​user actions​ ​and​ ​make​ ​changes​ ​to​ ​the​ ​model​ ​and​ ​view​ ​as​ ​required. A​ ​typical​ ​Symfony​ ​project​ ​folder​ ​contains​ ​strictly​ ​organized​ ​subfolders.​ ​In​ ​addition,​ ​Symfony generates​ ​its​ ​own​ ​scaffolding​ ​of​ ​the​ ​application​ ​based​ ​on​ ​user​ ​provided​ ​input.​ ​The​ ​result​ ​is​ ​a skeleton​ ​application​ ​that​ ​could​ ​be​ ​further​ ​improved​ ​with​ ​views​ ​and​ ​controllers.​ ​Developers generally​ ​only​ ​need​ ​to​ ​configure​ ​the​ ​database​ ​and​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​is​ ​handled​ ​by​ ​the​ ​framework​ ​itself.

  2. 2. What’s​ ​New​ ​in​ ​Symfony​ ​3.3 Symfony​ ​has​ ​released​ ​the​ ​latest​ ​stable​ ​release,​ ​version​ ​3.3.x​ ​with​ ​several​ ​new​ ​components​ ​and a​ ​bundle.​ ​In​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​these,​ ​the​ ​release​ ​has​ ​implemented​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​updates​ ​and​ ​fixes.​ ​The community​ ​is​ ​very​ ​excited​ ​about​ ​Symfony​ ​3.3​ ​features,​ ​components​ ​and​ ​bundles. In​ ​this​ ​version,​ ​Symfony​ ​has​ ​introduced​ ​the​ ​dotenv​ ​component​ ​which​ ​work​ ​pretty​ ​much​ ​like​ ​the Laravel’s​ ​.env​ ​file.​ ​Dotenv​ ​Component​ ​parses​ ​.env​ ​files​ ​to​ ​make​ ​environment​ ​variables​ ​of​ ​these files​ ​accessible​ ​via​ ​getenv(),​ ​$_ENV​ ​or​ ​$_SERVER Symfony​ ​uses​ ​Locks​ ​to​ ​prevent​ ​more​ ​than​ ​one​ ​simultaneous​ ​execution​ ​of​ ​commands​ ​on​ ​the server.​ ​This​ ​functionality​ ​was​ ​first​ ​added​ ​in​ ​Symfony​ ​2.6​ ​and​ ​is​ ​now​ ​extended​ ​through​ ​a​ ​whole new​ ​component​ ​with​ ​three​ ​main​ ​features.

  3. 3. Hosting​ ​Symfony​ ​on​ ​Amazon​ ​Web​ ​Services​ ​EC2 Symfony​ ​is​ ​a​ ​developer-​ ​centric​ ​PHP​ ​framework​ ​that​ ​powers​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​websites​ ​and​ ​web apps​ ​today.​ ​This​ ​framework​ ​is​ ​built​ ​upon​ ​Symfony​ ​Components​ ​that​ ​developers​ ​mix-and-match to​ ​create​ ​CMS​ ​and​ ​platforms​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Drupal,​ ​eZ​ ​Publish​ ​etc. Such​ ​a​ ​robust​ ​framework​ ​needs​ ​to​ ​be​ ​paired​ ​with​ ​an​ ​excellent​ ​hosting​ ​and​ ​support.​ ​This​ ​is where​ ​​ ​Amazon​ ​Web​ ​Services​ ​(AWS)​ ​excels.​ ​Amazon​ ​is​ ​the​ ​pioneer​ ​in​ ​providing​ ​cloud infrastructures​ ​and​ ​is​ ​famous​ ​for​ ​its​ ​persistent​ ​performance,​ ​reliable​ ​server​ ​infrastructure​ ​and prompt​ ​technical​ ​support.​ ​However,​ ​hosting​ ​Symfony​ ​on​ ​AWS​ ​is​ ​difficult​ ​because​ ​of​ ​a difficult-to-follow​ ​process. Cloudways,​ ​a​ ​managed​ ​cloud​ ​hosting​ ​platform​ ​is​ ​the​ ​easiest​ ​solution​ ​for​ ​this​ ​difficulty.​ ​Its platform​ ​is​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​easy​ ​installation​ ​and​ ​hosting​ ​solution​ ​that​ ​even​ ​beginners​ ​could follow​ ​without​ ​any​ ​issues.​ ​The​ ​result​ ​is​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​Symfony​ ​hosting​ ​solution​ ​powered​ ​by​ ​AWS and​ ​managed​ ​by​ ​Cloudways.

  4. 4. Symfony​ ​3​ ​Performance​ ​Benchmarks​ ​on​ ​PHP​ ​5.6​ ​and​ ​7 Symfony​ ​is​ ​rapidly​ ​becoming​ ​a​ ​popular​ ​choice​ ​for​ ​PHP​ ​projects.​ ​The​ ​framework​ ​has​ ​established its​ ​reputation​ ​after​ ​the​ ​release​ ​of​ ​version​ ​3.x.​ ​In​ ​the​ ​same​ ​vein,​ ​PHP​ ​recently​ ​received​ ​a​ ​major update​ ​in​ ​the​ ​form​ ​of​ ​PHP​ ​7.x.​ ​The​ ​latest​ ​PHP​ ​version​ ​is​ ​7.1.x. It​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​test​ ​the​ ​performance​ ​of​ ​these​ ​two​ ​new​ ​releases​ ​​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​that​ ​developers have​ ​a​ ​very​ ​good​ ​idea​ ​about​ ​the​ ​tools​ ​that​ ​they​ ​will​ ​be​ ​using​ ​in​ ​their​ ​next​ ​projects.​ ​In​ ​this context,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​understand​ ​that​ ​the​ ​previous​ ​versions​ ​of​ ​both​ ​Symfony​ ​and​ ​PHP​ ​will soon​ ​become​ ​obsolete.​ ​Thus,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​evaluate​ ​and​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​performance​ ​of​ ​the new​ ​versions​ ​so​ ​that​ ​the​ ​developers​ ​could​ ​better​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​implementation​ ​constraints​ ​of these​ ​tools. In​ ​this​ ​test​ ​my​ ​main​ ​concern​ ​is​ ​to​ ​check​ ​which​ ​version​ ​of​ ​PHP​ ​(5.6​ ​or​ ​7.0)​ ​works​ ​in​ ​more optimized​ ​way​ ​with​ ​Symfony. Read​ ​full​ ​article​ ​at:​ ​​
  5. 5. Upgrading​ ​Symfony​ ​From​ ​2.X​ ​To​ ​3.X In​ ​the​ ​last​ ​installment,​ ​I​ ​used​ ​AuthO​ ​for​ ​increasing​ ​security​ ​for​ ​Symfony​ ​3.1​ ​based​ ​apps. Versions​ ​3.0.x​ ​and​ ​3.1.x​ ​of​ ​Symfony​ ​are​ ​out​ ​for​ ​developers​ ​and​ ​the​ ​community​ ​is​ ​all​ ​abuzz​ ​with the​ ​neat​ ​features​ ​introduced​ ​for​ ​developers​ ​in​ ​these​ ​versions.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​already​ ​covered​ ​the features​ ​introduced​ ​in​ ​Symfony​ ​3.1. There​ ​are​ ​still​ ​developers​ ​who​ ​are​ ​working​ ​on​ ​the​ ​older​ ​2.x​ ​version​ ​of​ ​the​ ​framework.​ ​In​ ​order​ ​to take​ ​the​ ​full​ ​advantage​ ​of​ ​the​ ​features​ ​of​ ​the​ ​3.x​ ​versions​ ​of​ ​Symfony​ ​platform,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important that​ ​developers​ ​upgrade​ ​Symfony​ ​to​ ​the​ ​latest​ ​version. In​ ​this​ ​article,​ ​I​ ​will​ ​discuss​ ​how​ ​to​ ​upgrade​ ​from​ ​Symfony​ ​2.7​ ​to​ ​Symfony​ ​2.8​ ​and​ ​then​ ​to Symfony​ ​3.x.​ ​An​ ​upgrade​ ​to​ ​version​ ​2.8​ ​is​ ​called​ ​a​ ​minor​ ​update​ ​while​ ​upgrading​ ​to​ ​version​ ​3.x is​ ​called​ ​a​ ​major​ ​update.​ ​Version​ ​3.x​ ​comes​ ​with​ ​a​ ​whole​ ​new​ ​directory​ ​structure​ ​that​ ​also change​ ​the​ ​location​ ​of​ ​several​ ​key​ ​files​ ​and​ ​components.
