Documentation and tutorials

Autocomplete (or something else) is not working! Help! 😮

  • You usually need to trigger the autocomplete popup yourself, by pressing CTRL+SPACE (may be a different shortcut depending on your keymap).
  • Check your File -> Settings -> Symfony Plugin -> Enable Plugin for this Project
  • Many features require the app/cache/dev/appDevDebugProjectContainer.xml file to exist. It is generated when you boot your app in dev environment (open /app_dev.php in a browser or php app/console).
  • Routing features require the app/cache/dev/appDevUrlGenerator.php file to exist. It is generated the first time a call to $urlGenerator->generate() is made at runtime (open a page in your browser that generate at least 1 url).
