The form handlers are designed to enhance the developer experience (DX) when working with Symfony forms. It makes the controllers simpler by moving the form success and failure flows to a separate class.

class YourController extends Controller
    public function formAction(Request $request, MyEntityUser $user)
        $handler = $this->get('hostnet.form_handler.factory')->create(MyFormHandler::class);

        if (($response = $handler->handle($request, new MyFormData())) instanceof RedirectResponse) {
            return $response;

        // regular or in-valid flow
        return $this->render->renderView('/your/form.html.twig', [
            'form' => $handler->getForm()->createView()

By extracting the success - and if available, the failure - flows, you reduce the amount of code in your controllers, which in turn, achieves slim controllers. The definition of a controller is according to Symfony: "a PHP function you create that reads information from the Symfony's Request object and creates and returns a Response object".
