The "Symfony Legacy To LTE Edition" distribution
THIS VERSION WILL NOT BE MAINTAIN ANYMORE... Please use Symfony Project directly.
Welcome to the Symfony Legacy To LTE Edition - a fully-functional Symfony2 application to facilitate the incremental migration of legacy applications to the Symfony2 stack.

After, use the

php composer.phar create-project phil/symfony-legacy-lte-edition
Composer will install Symfony and all its dependencies in the directory
symfony-legacy-lte-edition under the project directory.
Finally, move all files from the
symfony-legacy-lte-edition directory to
the project directory
shopt -s dotglob && mv -v symfony-legacy-lte-edition/* . && shopt -u dotglob
Don't forget to delete the
