Symfony and Angular: shared translations

Angular for frontend with symfony delivering the data have become quite a common setup.

[Symfony 2] composer.json for a assumed-stable symfony 2 distribution

This small composer.json file is used in a project i am working on atm, feel free to use it at own risk. I will provide non-periodical updates and hopefully soon a full upgrade to symfony 2.1.x including doctrine orm 2.2.x.

Silverstripe Setup Script

We thought we had to improve our SilverStripe setup script for our development environment.
So Max and me rewrote it to add submodules and some other improvements.

Just run:

./install_silverstripe.sh mynewproject tags/2.4.7

and you have

  • silverstripe project folder structure
  • the tutorial theme
  • a already filled git repository
  • sapphire as submodule
  • cms as submodule
  • Uploadify as submodule
  • DataObjectManager as submodule
  • UserForms as submodule

The script has two parameters:

# install silverstripe + common modules from github
# usage sh install_silverstripe.sh <folder_name> <tag/branch>
# examples:
# sh install_silverstripe.sh some_folder tags/2.4.5
# sh install_silverstripe.sh some_folder master
