Creating Symfony applications

If you are building a microservice, console application or API:

symfony new my_project

composer create-project symfony/skeleton my_project

Symfony 3.4 is the latest long-term support version. Use it for projects that prioritize very long support over new features. End of support for bug fixes: Nov 2020 (see roadmap).

Using Symfony Components
in PHP applications

Symfony apps are built on top of a set of decoupled and reusable PHP libraries called Symfony Components. They have become the standard foundation on which the best PHP projects are built on. You can use any of these components on your own applications independently from the framework.

Install Composer and run this command to add a Symfony component in your app:

composer require
Symfony Demo application

The best Symfony learning resource and the reference to develop applications following the official best practices.
