A WebProfiler for Silex

v2.0.11 2018-04-04 11:41 UTC


WARNING: Silex is in maintenance mode only. Ends of life is set to June 2018. Read more on Symfony's blog.

The Silex Web Profiler service provider allows you to use the wonderful Symfony web debug toolbar and the Symfony profiler in your Silex 2.x application.


If you are using the 1.x Silex version, read the specific documentation.

To install this library, run the command below and you will get the latest version:

composer require 'silex/web-profiler:^2.0'

And enable it in your application:

use Silex\Provider;

$app->register(new Provider\WebProfilerServiceProvider(), array(
    'profiler.cache_dir' => __DIR__.'/../cache/profiler',
    'profiler.mount_prefix' => '/_profiler', // this is the default

The provider depends on ServiceControllerServiceProvider, TwigServiceProvider, and HttpFragmentServiceProvider so you also need to enable those if that's not already the case:

$app->register(new Provider\HttpFragmentServiceProvider());
$app->register(new Provider\ServiceControllerServiceProvider());
$app->register(new Provider\TwigServiceProvider());

If you are using FormServiceProvider, the WebProfilerServiceProvider will detect that and enable the corresponding panels.

Make sure to register all other required or used service providers before WebProfilerServiceProvider.

If you are using MonologServiceProvider for logs, you must also add symfony/monolog-bridge as a Composer dependency to get the logs in the profiler.

If you are using VarDumperServiceProvider, add symfony/debug-bundle as a Composer dependency to display VarDumper dumps in the toolbar and the profiler.

If you are using symfony/security, add symfony/security-bundle as a Composer dependency to display Security related information in the toolbar and the profiler.
