Symfony 2 app generator

Yeoman generator that scaffolds out a Symfony 2 PHP web app.


  • Symfony 2 Standard Edition
  • Built-in preview server with LiveReload
  • Automagically compile Compass
  • CSS Autoprefixing
  • Leaner Modernizr builds

For more information on what generator-symfony can do for you, take a look at the Grunt tasks used in our package.json.


Things you probably need:

  • npm
  • php
  • php-intl
  • composer
  • compass
  • vagrant
  • VirtualBox

Getting Started

  • Install: npm install -g generator-symfony
  • Run: yo symfony
  • Run: 'grunt build' once
  • Run grunt watch for development, point your browser at app_dev.php
  • Run grunt build for production deployment/access via app.php


  • --skip-install

    Skips the automatic execution of bower, npm and composer after scaffolding has finished.


generator-symfony is fork-friendly and you can always maintain a custom version which you npm install && npm link to continue using via yo symfony or a name of your choosing.
