Angular for frontend with symfony delivering the data have become quite a common setup.
When working with this constellation you will sooner or later come across the i18n topic. Most likely you would want to share translations between front- and backend. So that you could keep translations in one single location while using it for frontend templates as well as server-side error messages etc.
One approach would be to store translations in the symfony yml or xml files and deliver those to the frontend via an api endpoint.
Given that front- and backend-code run on the same server, there is an even simpler solution.

I recently started to do all PHP development with docker, since I was just tired of installing tons of dev libraries on my machine. Most of which i couldn’t even remember what they actually were good for.
When I first tried docker (docker-toolbox for mac) I was really disappointed how slow symfony apps ran inside the container. Continue reading “Symfony development with docker on a mac”
I usually would not recommend deployment via git and running composer on your prod server for several reasons like f.e. the network. I rather believe in builds.
But sometimes its just too convenient :)
So i have this uncritical smaller API app where the hosting has git, ssh access and i am in full control and i decided too keep it simple.

When you start with symfony you probably use the Symfony Standard Edition.
This is a quite good start but there are somethings that helped me and might help you aswell.
Since every beginning is “schwer” :)
So here there are.

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.
I still did not get the point regarding dependency resolution, so i simply “composed” the composer file by writing down my own requirements (“i want only the hottest, newest stuff!!”, then tracked down the error messages, removing them by explicetly writing down the missing dependencies by using the latest “dev-*” versions. After that i tried to run the project, which actually did not work, but selective downgrade of some of the bundles (framework, security-extra blahblah) finally did the job.

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.
./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

Twig Extensions is a tiny official repository for extensions to the Twig templating markup language, the default templating engine in each Symfony 2 (Standard Ed.) project. This short article shows how to purposeful enable them per-environment for your projects.

I just started digging in the shop software magento for a project and set up the following development environment.
In this scenario development is done on two local machines while products and pages beeing already edited on the “Live”-Web-Server.
Git is used for version control and deployment. Also
FTP SSH. Continue reading “set up magento in multiple environments”
Da habe ich mir letztens die html5 boilerplate angeschaut und musste feststellen, dass die einen ziemlich guten build mitbringt.
Dieser optimiert Bilder, konkateniert und komprimiert alles was so geht, mit Hilfe von u.a. dem YUI Kompressor.
Was es noch nicht kann ist der Deploy, aber das kann man ihm ja beibringen ;)

This is a small shell script to set up silverstripe CMS
along with some modules i often use (as seen in ivo’s post)
The script has two parameters:
– the folder to clone the whole thing into
– the branch/tag to checkout afterwards
# install silverstripe + common modules from github
# usage sh install_silverstripe.sh <folder_name> <tag/branch>
# sh install_silverstripe.sh some_folder tags/2.4.5
# sh install_silverstripe.sh some_folder master
