Symfony is a complete framework designed to optimize the development of web applications by way of several key features. For starters, it separates a web application’s business rules, server logic, and presentation views. It contains numerous tools and classes aimed at shortening the development time of a complex web application. Additionally, it automates common tasks so that the developer can focus entirely on the specifics of an application. The end result of these advantages means there is no need to reinvent the wheel every time a new web application is built!
Originaly symfony was written entirely in PHP 5 and eventually turned into modern set of PHP components, and web application framework. It has been thoroughly tested in various real-world projects, and is actually in use for high-demand e-business websites. It is compatible with most of the available databases engines, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server. It runs on *nix and Windows platforms.
This site is aimed to support Symfony framework and it’s going to provide tips for developers and improvement ideas for site owners. Also we keep here the latest versions of our Symfony plugins. We are going to review here sites built on top of symfony and estimate how good they are built. We have also planned to launch another services which might be helpfull for Symfony developers.
Also we have launched Twitter-based symfonians quick communication center Symfonians At Twitter. It allows you to see what other symfony developers are working on and what they are doing at this moment.
If you have any other ideas or proposals – we would be happy to consider them.
Best regards, SymfonyLab Team
