Backend generator theme


I’m wondering if there are available admin themes somewhere. It’s really strange but simple googling and search on symfony forum does not give me anything new.

What I knew before is good Joomla-like theme available here (this one is easy to use and integrate):

also there is available plugin based on ExtJs but it seems in early development (and it’s pretty slow at least when I tested it out):

There is also plugin which provide distinct configurations between create and edit actions:

And that’s all? I bet there must be guys who has own themes ( themesholders 😉 )

Why I’m started to talk about all this stuff. I found today in my RSSs this link and thought how good it would be if someone integrates such theme for symfony:

Maybe someday me..

I am writing my blog with symfony again. I tried somethig but not easy to use.
I embed the jquery markitup [1] editor to textareas. But you have write some javascript and css for all your texareas. It is not a good idea. It’s not finish yet, and i don’t have enough time for it. So, if i figure it out how to handle all dirty job with automaticly, i want to share this theme.

Here, two screenshot:


Looks pretty cool. Especially thanks for sharing a link to markitup jQuery plugin!

Hi there, I am the writer/maintainer of the sfExtjsThemePlugin and at the moment it is getting more and more mature and usable (although not finished)

I don’t think there should be any performance differences between this theme and the default. Of course all javascript will be harder for the client-sided-rendering (especially with firebug on) but for the server side it can be even lighter since a lot of content is provided in json-format. The json-result doesn’t require any templates but can directly be send from the action.class.php of your module. (In the past this wasn’t the case).

So maybe it now is a good time to take a new look at the plugin 😉

A demo can be found here: (login with admin admin)

a rather old theme, but to my BIG surprise and dissapoitment, nothing new really is going on in this field. Well, maybe the admin generator has gotten a bit more advanced, but there is still a lot of room for loads of features I am searching for.
Actually I’d love to see the whole opensource CMS based on symfony. I’m quite surprised I haven’t found one just yet!

I’d recommend you to take a look on this:

I already wrote about it in another post, so I guess you probably already saw that. I guess it’s worth your attention.
