Symfony Components Website
by Fabien Potencier – May 15, 2009 – 20 comments

Some time ago, I have introduced the new "Symfony Components" project. It is a sub-project of Symfony that aims to give more importance to some of the great libraries we have developed for Symfony. Until now, the only evidence of their existence was the dedicated Subversion repository, and the Git mirror. The following components have already been released: YAML, Dependency Injection, and Event Dispatcher. And more will come soon.

Today, I am happy to announce that the Symfony Components now have their dedicated website.

Each component has its own section with its documentation, API, instructions to install and use it, and how to contribute back. For now, we have worked on the YAML website as an example, but we are also already working on the next ones. Expect most of them to be available for the Symfony Live conference.

Life is too short to be serious. So, we decided that the component website should be a bit more fun than the symfony website. That's why each component has its own animal, representing the component.

We are very excited about the Symfony Component project, and we hope you will find new ways of using these standalone libraries outside your symfony projects.

    Great Job folks. Day to day you demostrate why symfony is number one php framework. Congratulations Fabien.

    Love what you're doing with this so far. I would really like to see some of the smaller libraries becoming components. I find them the most useful, however most people don't know about them because they're not ever display except within the core code. Some examples are sfFinder, sfCache, and sfTimer. But there are a ton of little libraries like this which could be great additions to the components for people to use for drop-in functionality. I can't tell you how useful sfFinder has become for me in things like simple batch tasks.

    Really cool indeed! Would love to see the configuration library and its handy sfConfig class become one of these components!

    Quelle bonne idee!

    Symfony continues to lead the way in making my life easier. This decoupling will benefit smaller projects that maybe don't require a full-blown symfony install (but could still benefit from various components).

    And the creative is just great...

    Fantastic initiative. This will surely benefit to the project making everything more robust and easier to maintain.

    I really recommend people to read this blog to keep up to date with the latest trends in modern software architecture. Even if you don't develop using symfony.

    I wonder whether you plan to release the UML schemas of all those components, to let people easily adapt them to other languages.
