This bundle provides some tools for a better integration of LibrinfoDoctrineBundle behaviours in Sonata Admin



  • having a working Symfony2 environment
  • having created a working Symfony2 app (including your DB and your DB link)
  • having composer installed (here in /usr/local/bin/composer, with /usr/local/bin in the path)


$ composer require libre-informatique/base-entities-bundle dev-master

Adding the bundle in your app

Edit your app/AppKernel.php file and add your "libre-informatique/base-entities-bundle" :

    // app/AppKernel.php
    // ...
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...

            // The libre-informatique bundles
            new Blast\BaseEntitiesBundle\BlastCoreBundle(),
            new Blast\BaseEntitiesBundle\LibrinfoDoctrineBundle(),
            new Blast\BaseEntitiesBundle\BlastBaseEntitiesBundle(),

            // your personal bundles

Configuring the bundle

Activate the listeners you need in your application (add those lines to app/config/config.yml) :

# Enable LibrinfoDocrineBundle event listeners
            naming: true
            guidable: true
            timestampable: true
            addressable: true
            treeable: true
            nameable: true
            labelable: true
            emailable: true
            descriptible: true
            searchable: true
            loggable: true
    # List of entity search-able indexed fields
                - name
                - fulltextName
                - firstname
                - lastname
                - description
                - email
                - url

Add/remove the needed behaviours for each orm connection used by your application.

Under entity_search_indexes key, you can set search indexes for each entity that should be indexable.
