Install symfony in ten seconds
The symfony sandbox is a ready-to-go version of symfony, that works instantly once unpacked into your web root folder. You can start to experiment with symfony in ten seconds, without any PEAR installation or web server configuration.
How is it possible?
The sandbox is an empty symfony project where all the required libraries (symfony, pake, creole, propel and phing) are already included, and where the basic configuration is already done. You can add modules to the default 'frontend' application, or create an application of your own. This symfony package has all the features of the standard version, and it is even shipped with the command line tool.
Who is it for?
The sandbox is made for symfony beginners, who never installed it before, and who want to play with it or try the tutorials by skipping the installation section.
It is compatible with Windows and *nix platforms, and needs only PHP5 and a web server to run.
If you already have a version of symfony installed, you probably won't want to use the sandbox, as it is not upgradeable. If you want to start a real symfony application, we advise you to use the PEAR version instead, which can be changed and upgraded independantly of your project.
Which version of symfony is it?
The current sandbox contains a 0.6 alpha version of the symfony framework. It means that it contains features that are not documented yet, and others for which the documentation is not up to date.
It also means that the stability of the application is not guaranteed, but it is definitely enough for you to experiment with symfony.
Where do I sign?
Now that trying symfony has never been easier, you can't miss it anymore. Download the sandbox (it's a simple .tgz archive), read the included readme file, and enjoy the ease of use of the symfony framework.
