XsolveBootstrapCrudBundle is for preparing CRUD action from console to Bootstrap, from Twitter.

Also, there is prepared example layout to make beggining with project faster.


First you need to add xsolve-pl/xsolve-bootstrap-crud-bundle to composer.json:

    "require": {
        "xsolve-pl/xsolve-bootstrap-crud-bundle": "dev-master"
"repositories": [
        "type": "package",
        "package": {
            "name": "jquery/jquery",
            "version": "1.9.1",
            "dist": {
                "url": "",
                "type": "file"

You can configure your assets inside config.yml file. You should have installed less and node libraries with less for node module (sudo npm -g install less)

assetic: debug: %kernel.debug% use_controller: false bundles: [ 'XsolveBootstrapCrudBundle' ] filters: cssrewrite: ~ less: node: /usr/local/bin/node node_paths: [/usr/local/lib/node_modules] apply_to: ".less$"

You also have to add XsolveBootstrapCrudBundle and BcBootstrapBundle to your AppKernel.php:

// app/AppKernel.php
class AppKernel extends Kernel
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            new Bc\Bundle\BootstrapBundle\BcBootstrapBundle(),
            new Xsolve\BootstrapCrudBundle\XsolveBootstrapCrudBundle(),

        return $bundles;

Example layout

There is created example layout using twitter bootstrap styles in resources. After successful installation you can start with prepared example layout based on bootstrap's home page.

To do this, you need to extend your base layout file in app/Resources/views/base.html.twig by:

    {% extends 'XsolveBootstrapCrudBundle::examplelayout.html.twig' %}

And that's it.

CRUD generator

Because CRUD generator in Symfony framework has own structure and after generating a developer should always change some classes and code inside the code there is created new generator command in command line.

It works in the same way as the oryginal enerator in Symfony, but generates templates dedicated for twitter bootstrap.
