The Symfony Bundles Documentation
These are some of the most commonly used bundles when developing Symfony applications. Learn more about them.
Bundles included in the Symfony Standard Edition
- Adds some conventions to the Standard Edition of Symfony and adds support for defining routing, caching, templating and security via annotations. This results in much more concise controllers.
- Adds lots of console commands for generating code skeletons like bundles, form classes and CRUD controllers based on Doctrine entities.
Bundles related to Doctrine project
- Integrates Doctrine's ORM and DBAL projects into Symfony applications. It provides configuration options, console commands and even a web debug toolbar collector.
- Allows to create and load fixtures via Doctrine. Data fixtures are used to load a controlled set of data into a database. This data can be used for testing or could be the initial data required for the application.
- Integrates MongoDB NoSQL database thanks to an Object Document Mapper (ODM) which is much like the Doctrine2 ORM in its philosophy and how it works.
- Offers you the ability to programmatically deploy new versions of your database schema in a safe, easy and standardized way.
- Allows your Symfony application to use different caching systems through the Doctrine Cache library.
