This is a Symfony Bundle compatible with Symfony 2.6+ which provides several features which are commonly required in Symfony projects.


Step 1: Add the following to the "require" section of composer.json

"sideclick/core-bundle": "dev-master"

Step 2: Enable the bundle

Enable the bundle in the kernel:

// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new Sideclick\CoreBundle\SideclickCoreBundle(),

Step 3: Install additional Bundles

This Bundle requires that other bundles be installed and configured, these are:

Step 3.1 Configuring FOSMessageBundle

When configuring FOSMessageBundle, start with this:

    db_driver: orm
    thread_class: Sc\CoreBundle\Entity\Thread
    message_class: Sc\CoreBundle\Entity\Message

You will need to install and configure these before being able to use this Bundle.


1. Entity Helpers

Entity helper classes should be defined in the /Entity/Helper directory, here is the basic structure of an Entity Helper class for an entity named 'User':


namespace Sideclick\CoreBundle\Entity\Helper;

use Sideclick\CoreBundle\Entity\Helper\HelperAbstract;
use Sideclick\CoreBundle\Entity\User;

class UserHelper extends HelperAbstract
    protected $_user;

    public function setUser(User $user)
        $this->_user = $user;

There is a service named sc_core.entity_helper_factory which makes it easy to get an instance of an Entity Helper for an object, for example, in your controller you could do:

$userHelper = $this->get('sc_core.entity_helper_factory')->getEntityHelper($user);

Also, there is a twig function to get a helper in your templates:
