Directory Structure

As you can see, there is no src root folder and all your code will be in app/src. This is because we are not using the directory structure of Symfony Standard Edition.

What's inside?

The Black Standard Edition is configured with the following defaults:

  • An AppBundle you can use to start coding;

  • Twig as the only configured template engine;

  • Doctrine ORM/DBAL;

  • Swiftmailer;

  • Annotations disabled for everything.

It comes pre-configured with the following bundles:

  • FrameworkBundle - The core Symfony framework bundle

  • SensioFrameworkExtraBundle - Adds several enhancements, including template and routing annotation capability

  • DoctrineBundle - Adds support for the Doctrine ORM

  • TwigBundle - Adds support for the Twig templating engine

  • SecurityBundle - Adds security by integrating Symfony's security component

  • SwiftmailerBundle - Adds support for Swiftmailer, a library for sending emails

  • MonologBundle - Adds support for Monolog, a logging library

  • WebProfilerBundle (in dev/test env) - Adds profiling functionality and the web debug toolbar

  • SensioDistributionBundle (in dev/test env) - Adds functionality for configuring and working with Symfony distributions

  • PuliSymfonyBundle — an universal package system for PHP. Puli aims to replace “bundles”, “plugins”, “modules” and similar specialized packages of different frameworks with one generic, framework independent solution.

  • AliceBundle - A Symfony bundle to manage fixtures with nelmio/alice and fzaninotto/Faker.

  • DebugBundle (in dev/test env) - Adds Debug and VarDumper component integration
