Do you miss that the version numbers of your PHP dependencies are automatically updated in the composer.json file after a composer update? Just like npm or yarn are updating the version numbers in the package.json file.
Then upgrade to Composer 2.4 and say hi tocomposer dump. This version introduced a new command composer bump which will update your composer.json file to the precise version which is pinned in the composer.lock file. It basically will sync the composer.json with the composer.lock versions and will keep the caret version constraints, so you can still make minor or patch version upgrades.
I had the task the other day to use a headless chrome to generate PDF files from websites in a PHP app.
The plan was to use chrome-php with a headless chrome to generate the PDF.
Usually you would install chrome/chromium on a linux server via apt and just run chrome from the PATH with chrome. Since i was on shared hosting i was not sure if this was possible since i was not allowed to run apt commands. So i tried to use Puppeteer which ships a headless chrome executable and use just this directly. I installed Puppeteer with npm locally and uploaded the chrome executable to the shared hosting. Puppeteer will place the headless chrome in the .cache dir in your home directory, f.e.:
$file = 'path/to/file.txt';
$response = new BinaryFileResponse($file);Code language:PHP(php)
But in some cases you might want to create an image dynamically and return it directly from the controller without storing it on the filesystem. So you can create your image with the GD library and directly stream the GDImage object from the symfony controller with the StreamedResponse class.
Using Postgres with the Postgis extension to integrate GeoData / GIS functionality in your project is not natively supported by Doctrine and Doctrine migrations.
First you have to add the extension to Postgres, even if you use the Postgis docker image like postgis/postgis:14-3.3-alpine.
So add this SQL statement to the up method of your first migration: $this->addSql('CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS postgis;');
and the DROP statement for the extension to the down method: $this->addSql('DROP EXTENSION postgis;');
Now, when using Doctrine with Postgres and Postgis extension, migrations still behave a bit odd and try to remove Sequences created by Postgis, because Doctrine migrations does not take Postgis extension’ s built-in Sequences into account.
Are you annoyed of too many deprecation warnings in you logs of your symfony app? Probably yes because it is really a lot of noise. However deprecation logs are still useful to ensure future compatibility of your app.
So since version 5.1 symfony will log deprecations to a dedicated log channel when it exists and ships with this monolog config:
- deprecation # Deprecations are logged in the dedicated "deprecation" channel when it existsCode language:PHP(php)
This is added already in the recipe and ships when installing symfony.
Ok, but the handler for this deprecation channel is not configured, so you have to do this yourself. How? Add this to your monolog config:
There are multiple PHP native ways to convert umlaute and other special characters to ascii save formats, but most of them i experience insufficient in the one or other way.
Since i am using symfony anyway i can use the String component which has a handy slugger which converts any characters into safe ascii characters. It is very flexible and can be customized with locales, custom replacements and closures.
