About Symfony

Symfony is a PHP web application framework for MVC applications. Symfony is free software and released under the MIT license.

Symfony aims to speed up the creation and maintenance of web applications and to replace repetitive coding tasks.

Symfony has a low performance overhead used with a bytecode cache.

Symfony is aimed at building robust applications in an enterprise context, and aims to give developers full control over the configuration: from the directory structure to the foreign libraries, almost everything can be customized. To match enterprise development guidelines, Symfony is bundled with additional tools to help developers test, debug and document projects.

    Symfony is a complete PHP framework for web development. I use it every day, and I think that it's a very good set of libraries, designed very well. If you need to start a new big PHP project, probably Symfony it's the right choice for you.

    There are a lot of things that works out of the box, and the documentation is good and easily downloadable.

    Pros :

    • For a developer, framework documentation is essential. Symfony has a good documentation, well written and easily downloadable in PDF format. This is a good thing, so eventually, you can print the part of the documentation that you need to know.
      There is also a good cookbook and a set of best practices. For a beginner, these are pros that make life easier. In fact, Symfony it's very easy to learn.
    • All the framework is very well designed and the bundle system is a good pattern for the big project with a lot of independent modules.
    • Controllers are well designed and easy to implement. Also, routing is very easy to set up and configure.
    • The template bundle, for frontend web development, is probably one of the most pros fo the framework. Twig is very well structured and if you are confident with Django or Jinja templates they are very similar. Also, Twig templates are very to understand from a web designer point of view.
    • Doctrine (or Propel) are excellent, so the database layer is covered very well in this framework. They are also a separate package, so they don't depend on Symfony itself: decoupled packages are always a good thing.
    • There are a great amount of other utilities, very useful for web development.

    Cons :

    • The documentation is good, but the examples are only for simple things. Is a developer needs to code something unusual, the documentation is not very helpful. Probably it needs a more generic documentation, not so "example oriented".

      • Even if there is documentation for best practices, they are not so complete. So in some cases the developer hasn't the right point of reference. This isn't a good thing because there's the risk to write bad code that doesn't fit well in the framework.
