Turbo-charged symfony new! Rapid application creation for new Symfony projects.



Heavily inspired by Tighten's Lambo and utilizing the Symfony client, Carrera help's you get a new Symfony application up and running super fast.

Sick of having to run those same commands every time you spin up a new project? Use Carrera to automate all the things!

System Requirements

To use Carrera, you need to have PHP 7, Git and Composer installed on your machine.

You'll also need the Symfony client - Download here


composer global require rickwest/carrera


composer global update rickwest/carrera


Make sure ~/.config/composer/vendor/bin is in your terminal's path.

carrera [project name]

This will symfony new [project name], change into that directory, make an initial Git commit, start a web server and open the project in a web browser.

What exactly does Carrera do?

  • symfony new $PROJECTNAME
  • Initialize a git repo, add all of the files, and make an "Initial commit"
  • Starts the Symfony Local Web Server
  • Open's your project in a browser
