Developing with Symfony2, part 1: Setting up shop

I’m pleased to announce that, after some technical difficulties, I have uploaded a Symfony2 screencast to YouTube. It’s part one of a series in which I’ll be walking through the development, from the ground up, of a working Symfony2 application… look for more installments in the coming weeks.

This screencast walks through a few of the basics:

  • downloading Symfony2 Standard Edition using git
  • using composer to install the framework dependencies
  • best practices for preserving privacy of sensitive information
  • making the logs/ and cache/ directories writable (note: if you can’t get this working, a good ol’ chmod -R 777 app/cache/ app/logs/ ought to get you started)

  1. This video was very helpful in getting the environment set up. Are you still planning to continue this series? I’d be very interested to see more!

    1. The intention was to do one a week, but my new job has been eating up most of my time. I can’t currently commit to a schedule, but I’m definitely planning on creating more!
