Welcome to the Symfony EmberJS Edition - a fully-functional Symfony2 application that you can use as the skeleton for your new applications.

It owes a lot to: FOSRestBundle



This document contains information on how to download, install, and start using Symfony. For a more detailed explanation, see the Installation chapter of the Symfony Documentation.

  1. Installing Dependencies

npm install -g bower npm install -g ember-precompile

  1. Installing the EmberJS Edition

When it comes to installing the Symfony EmberJS Edition, you have the following options.

Use Composer (recommended)

As Symfony uses Composer to manage its dependencies, the recommended way to create a new project is to use it.

If you don't have Composer yet, download it following the instructions on http://getcomposer.org/ or just run the following command:

curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Then, use the create-project command to generate a new Symfony application:

php composer.phar create-project ucsf-ckm/symfony-emberjs-edition path/to/install

Composer will install Symfony and all its dependencies under the path/to/install directory.

Download an Archive File

To quickly test Symfony, you can also download an archive of the EmberJS Edition and unpack it somewhere under your web server root directory.

If you downloaded an archive "without vendors", you also need to install all the necessary dependencies. Download composer (see above) and run the following command:

php composer.phar install
  1. Checking your System Configuration

Before starting coding, make sure that your local system is properly configured for Symfony.

Execute the check.php script from the command line:

php app/check.php

The script returns a status code of 0 if all mandatory requirements are met, 1 otherwise.

Access the config.php script from a browser:


If you get any warnings or recommendations, fix them before moving on.

  1. Browsing the Demo Application

Congratulations! You're now ready to use Symfony.

From the config.php page click on the "Configure your Symfony Application online" link of the config.php page.

Setup your database connection - use sqlite for a fast demo.

Create the database schema and add some sample data:

php app/console doctrine:schema:create --env=dev
php app/console doctrine:fixtures:load --env=dev
