Bridge library for running Symfony Flex on Platform.sh
This simple bridge library connects a Symfony Flex-based application to Platform.sh. In the typical case it should be completely fire-and-forget.
Symfony Flex expects all configuration to come in through environment variables with specific names in a specific format. Platform.sh provides configuration information as environment variables in a different specific format. This library handles mapping the Platform.sh variables to the format Symfony Flex expects for common values.
Simply require this package using Composer. When Composer's autoload is included this library will be activated and the environment variables set. As long as that happens before Symfony bootstraps its configuration (which it almost certainly will) everything should work fine with no further user-interaction necessary.
composer require platformsh/symfonyflex-bridge
If a Platform.sh relationship named
databaseis defined, it will be taken as an SQL database and mapped to the
DATABASE_URLenvironment variable for Symfony Flex. (Note: Due to a bug in Doctrine, the code currently assumes MariaDB 10.2 as the service version. If that Doctrine bug is ever resolved this hard-coding can be removed.)
The Symfony Flex
APP_SECRETis set based on the
PLATFORM_PROJECT_ENTROPYvariable, which is provided for exactly this purpose.
MAILER_URLvariable is set based on the
PLATFORM_SMTP_HOSTvariable. That will be used by SwiftMailer if it is installed. If not installed this value will be safely ignored.
APP_ENVvalue is set, it will default to
