- sfPropelAlternativeSchemaPlugin: this plugin extends the symfony model generator, based on Propel, to allow a schema to override another one. It also provides a new YAML syntax for defining database schemas, more explicit and more readable.
- sfPHPUnitPlugin: integrates PHPUnit in symfony applicactions. The main motivation for this plugin was to introduce Selenium testing into symfony, so that you could fully test AJAX'ed sites from the command line.
- sfExtjsThemePlugin: extends the power of the generator and adds the Extjs AJAX library to a symfony project, while remaining compatible to the default symfony-theme. It allows you to use the power of the Extjs library for the admin generated modules by simply defining this theme in your generator.yml file.
