Build Status

Please note that this service was previously called Symfony2Bundles but we had to change the name due to trademark issues.


Get the code

git clone git://


To configure your database in your development environment, copy /app/config/parameters.yml.dist to /app/config/parameters.yml and edit it according to your database settings.

If you want to use github connect locally, you'll need to create an app on github with the callback:


And update the parameters.yml with the Client ID and Secret.

If you also want to use sensio labs connect locally, you'll need to create a client on sensio labs connect with the callback:


And update the parameters.yml with the Client ID and Secret.

Install PHP-Sundown

KnpBundles uses php-sundown extension to convert markdown to HTML.

To install this plugin you should use pear which is available in php-dev package.

Notice: sundown is in beta state for now, precise it during the installation or you will get an error.

Install vendors

curl -s | php
php composer.phar install

Create database and tables

php app/console doctrine:database:drop --force
php app/console doctrine:database:create
php app/console doctrine:schema:create

php app/console --env=test doctrine:database:drop --force
php app/console --env=test doctrine:database:create
php app/console --env=test doctrine:schema:create

Load data fixtures

php app/console doctrine:fixtures:load
php app/console --env=test doctrine:fixtures:load

Run the tests (requires PHPUnit >= 3.5)

phpunit -c app

./bin/behat @KnpBundlesBundle

To generate migrations from your current schema

php app/console doctrine:migrations:diff
php app/console doctrine:migrations:migrate
php app/console cache:warmup


Launch the consumer

We rely on RabbitMQ to update bundles:

  • The main server produces messages saying "Hey, we should update this bundle"
  • The consumers read these messages and update them

To launch a consumer, do:

php app/console rabbitmq:consumer update_bundle

Note that you will need a functional rabbitmq server − Follow the instructions in this page to install it.

Populate document collections from GitHub

php app/console kb:populate

This can take a long time. GitHub API is limited to 60 calls per minute, so the commands needs to wait.

Update all bundles in database

php app/console kb:update:bundles

This can take a long time but should be run to trigger update on all bundles when this is needed.

Search engine

We use Solr and its PHP client Solarium to search bundles.

To install Solr, follow this steps:

  1. Download the version 3.6.2 (new versions are not compatibles) and extract it
  2. Uses the command kb:solr:start --solr-path="/path/to/solar-3.6.2/example"
  3. And run kb:solr:index --verbose

Use the default Jetty server included with SOLR. The default directory used for the installation is opt/solr/example. Copy the recommended configuration and schema found here to your solr/conf directory.

You can run SOLR using:

php app/console kb:solr:start

See bin/ script Bundles will be automatically indexed on next update, or you can force indexing by console command.

If you have Solr up and running, simply do:

php app/console kb:solr:index --verbose

This will index all bundles.

Generate sitemap

php app/console kb:sitemap:generate --spaceless=1

Will create sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml.gz in web directory. Sitemap includes bundles and user profiles
