This package is abandoned and no longer maintained. The author suggests using the src-run/arthur-doctrine-fixtures-bundle package instead.

A set of classes, centered around `AbstractFixture` and its children, that allows for a simple implementation of Doctrine ORM fixture loading.

Welcome! The scr-be/arthur-doctrine-fixtures-bundle package provides providing advanced YAML-based data-fixture importing, including support for priority- or dependent-based import ordering, configurable per-table merge or purge import strategies, simple inter-fixture references, and more.


This package is part of the arthur group (explanation), comprised of other releases with a concentration in core doctrine base classes, and related functionality.


This package represents a single project within a large collection of open-source code released under the Scribe namespace, comprised of framework-agnostic libraries, and a number of Symfony bundles. These projects are authored and maintained by Rob Frawley 2nd and collaborators, often with the support of Scribe Inc.

Quick Start


Get the code by requiring it explicitly via the Composer CLI, or by editing your composer.json to reflect the dependency and updating your project requirements. For example, to explicitly require this project using the CLI, use the following command.

$ composer require scr-be/arthur-doctrine-fixtures-bundle

To enable the bundle, register it with your Symfony application kernel by instantiating ScribeArthurDoctrineFixturesBundle within the bundle array.

// app/AppKernel.php
class AppKernel extends Kernel {
    public function registerBundles() {
        $bundles = [
            // ...
            new Scribe\Arthur\DoctrineFixturesBundle\ScribeArthurDoctrineFixturesBundle(),
        // ...


Available configuration values can be referenced by using the Symfony console command app/console (assuming the Symfony full-stack framework and bundle registration). Additionally, this bundle provides a bare console executable that can be invoked by calling the following.

bin/arthur-doctrine-fixtures config:dump-reference scribe_arthur_doctrine_fixtures


API Docs

This package's API-documentation is available at, (as well as linked below via the Reference badge found under the Additional Links header). All API-reference is build against the master Git branch and updated automatically on each Git push---api-reference for specific releases will be provided once this package has matured.

The entire API-reference website is auto-generated using a quick, reliable, and well-developed CLI tool called Sami. It is rigerously and regularly tested through its use in large, complex projects, such as the Symfony Full-Stack Framework <see:>, as well as its use in smaller projects such Twig <see:>. Reference Sami's GitHub page to learn how to use it with your own projects!


Currently, there is no "human-written" documentation---outside of this README. Pending package stability and available resources, a RTD (Read the Docs) page will be published with additional information and tutorials, including real use-cases within the Symfony Framework.
