A month of Symfony Documentation #1 (December 2014)
This is the first blog post of a new monthly series reviewing the main changes introduced in the official Symfony Documentation during the last month.
David Buchmann rewrote the cookbook article How to Use Varnish to Speed up my Website to improve its contents, specially the section about routing and X-FORWARDED headers. Also, don't miss out the excellent FOSHttpCacheBundle that David has co-authored to simplify HTTP Cache management for Symfony applications.
- Securely Comparing Strings and Generating Random Numbers
- How Does the Security access_control Work?
- How to Build a Traditional Login Form
- How to Use multiple User Providers
Javier Eguiluz rewrote the book chapter about Installing Symfony. The goal was to simplify the first Symfony contact for newcomers. That's why we now recommend to use the Symfony Installer and to run PHP's internal web server on the development environment.
This month was pretty busy for Symfony documentation, totaling 79 merged pull requests, around 300 commits, 4,000 additions and 3,500 deletions. Read the full documentation changelog for December 2014.
Some of the most active contributors during this month were Frank Neff (frne), Andrius Marcinkevicius (ifdattic) and Alexander Schwenn (xelaris), who have fixed an incredible amount of typos throughout the documentation.
Symfony documentation is carefully curated by three managers: Ryan Weaver, Christian Flothmann (xabbuh) and Wouter De Jong. The changelog and the information highlighted in this post was prepared by Wouter.
