What is Hydra?

Hydra is a social media channel aggregator. Using other bundles it modulary built to combine multiple API-requests to different social media websites like facebook, twitter, instagram or youtube.

A nice bootstraped user interface is available for you to configure your different social media channels and api requests. Its also easy to decide which entries that have been synced from your feeds should appear in your aggregated feed.

Hydra can be used to develop all kind of social media feed renderers.


  • Hydra is only supported on PHP 5.3.3 and up.
  • We love Symfony and built this bundle for usage with it (Version 2.3+ required).
  • Hydra is built upon Social Harvester Bundles. At the moment 4 of them exist, they are installed automatically.
