The bundle toolbox provides a set of abstract classes and tools to avoid code redundancy between the bundles.


Create a new bundle, and add this bundle as a dependency.

composer require richcongress/bundle-toolbox

Quick start


When creating a new Configuration, use the AbstractConfiguration, set correctly the CONFIG_NODE constant, and set the buildConfiguration function. The argument is the root node of your configuration.

class Configuration extends AbstractConfiguration
    public const CONFIG_NODE = 'bundle_toolbox_test';

    protected function buildConfiguration(ArrayNodeDefinition $rootNode): void

From your bundle, you could use the get static function to quickly retrieve the bundle configuration.

$this->specificConfiguration = Configuration::get($parameterBag, 'your_sub_configuration');


When creating the Extension, extends from AbstractExtension. You now have a new function available, parseConfiguration which process the configuration and load it in the ParameterBag of your container.

class BundleExtension extends AbstractExtension
    public function load(array $configs, ContainerBuilder $container): void
        $this->parseConfiguration($container, new Configuration(), $configs);


When creating a new CompilerPass, use the AbstractCompilerPass and add them from the build() function of your bundle.

public function build(ContainerBuilder $container): void

You can also configure its Type and Priority using respectively the constants TYPE and PRIORITY.

You can use the MANDATORY_SERVICES constant to check quickly if the required services exists:

public const MANDATORY_SERVICES = ['service1', 'service2', 'service3'];

public function process(ContainerBuilder $container): void
    if (!self::checkMandatoryServices($container)) {

    // ...


When creating a new Bundle, use the AbstractBundle. If you want to add a CompilerPass, simply add it to the COMPILER_PASSES constant. If the compiler is an instance of AbstractCompilerPass, it will use the add method. If not, it will be added to the container using the default values.


The bundle toolbox follows semantic versioning. In short the scheme is MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH where

  1. MAJOR is bumped when there is a breaking change,
  2. MINOR is bumped when a new feature is added in a backward-compatible way,
  3. PATCH is bumped when a bug is fixed in a backward-compatible way.

Versions bellow 1.0.0 are considered experimental and breaking changes may occur at any time.


Contributions are welcomed! There are many ways to contribute, and we appreciate all of them. Here are some of the major ones:

  • Bug Reports: While we strive for quality software, bugs can happen and we can't fix issues we're not aware of. So please report even if you're not sure about it or just want to ask a question. If anything the issue might indicate that the documentation can still be improved!
  • Feature Request: You have a use case not covered by the current api? Want to suggest a change or add something? We'd be glad to read about it and start a discussion to try to find the best possible solution.
  • Pull Request: Want to contribute code or documentation? We'd love that! If you need help to get started, GitHub as documentation on pull requests. We use the "fork and pull model" were contributors push changes to their personnal fork and then create pull requests to the main repository. Please make your pull requests against the master branch.

As a reminder, all contributors are expected to follow our Code of Conduct.


You might use Docker and docker-compose to hack the project. Check out the following commands.

# Start the project
docker-compose up -d

# Install dependencies
docker-compose exec application composer install

# Run tests
docker-compose exec application bin/phpunit

# Run a bash within the container
docker-compose exec application bash
