Symfony Support Screencast

Guest Author

We've created a screencast that demonstrates the built-in support for the Symfony framework in
NetBeans IDE for PHP 6.8. It shows how to set up the IDE to use
Symfony, how to create a PHP project that uses the Symfony framework,
and a number of tips, such as handy keymapping to set up in NetBeans IDE.

    Nice screencast! What tool are you using to record and edit your video?

    This is great! I've been waiting a while for this to come out. It looks like it was nicely done. However, I wonder how well this will port to the Symfony 1.3 branch that is currently in beta?

    Thank you so much for your tutorial video. I spent a very long time trying to figure out why things would not work because none bothered to tell me not to use symfony.bat as the file to point to as the symphony script file. There was also other confusion caused by sites showing supposedly netbeans 6.8 with a create symphony project directly under new project/php.

    Once again its been proved that videos do not lie! Thank you so much!

    I followed the screencast to create a symfony project in netbeans 6.9. I used symfony 1.4.5 which by default supports Doctrine ORM. I guess versions prior to 1.3 supported propel as default ORM.

    After setup it opened project/source

    files/config/ProjectConfiguration.class.php by default. This file contains hard coded absolute path to the symfony framework file -

    "require_once 'E:\\\\wamp\\\\www\\\\symfony1.4.5\\\\lib/autoload/sfCoreAutoload.class.php';"

    According to symfony documentation(http://www.symfony-project.org/getting-started/1_4/en/03-Symfony-Installation) each project should have its own copy of symfony framework files and they should be placed in project/lib/vendor/symfony directory.

    Documentation also says(http://www.symfony-project.org/getting-started/1_4/en/04-Project-Setup)--

    If the path to symfony is an absolute one, change it so it reads like follows for

    better portability--

    ideal path -

    // config/ProjectConfiguration.class.php

    require_once dirname(__FILE__).'/../lib/vendor/symfony/lib/autoload/sfCoreAutoload.class.php';

    I want to know what is your opinion on -

    1. copying symfony framework files into the project dir. lib/vendor as per the symfony docs.

    2. setting up relative path so that the project become easily portable.

    3. Also please tell if I want to copy the framework files into newly created project then which are the files that I will need to make changes into?
