How to use Doctrine Extensions: Timestampable, Sluggable, Translatable, etc.

Doctrine2 is very flexible, and the community has already created a series of useful Doctrine extensions to help you with common entity-related tasks.

One library in particular - the DoctrineExtensions library - provides integration functionality for Sluggable, Translatable, Timestampable, Loggable, Tree and Sortable behaviors.

The usage for each of these extensions is explained in that repository.

However, to install/activate each extension you must register and activate an Event Listener. To do this, you have two options:

  1. Use the StofDoctrineExtensionsBundle, which integrates the above library.
  2. Implement this services directly by following the documentation for integration with Symfony2: Install Gedmo Doctrine2 extensions in Symfony2
