Using the Killer Crud Application
After installation you should be viewing the homepage.
It's a simple demo page but the navigation to the left is where you can get started.
Also note "Create Contract" in the upper right. Each path will get you creating your first contract.

However it's a great example of how a little implementation code can get you up and running with a persistant object when using Symfony and Doctrine.
Bootstrap is also a great framework for CSS and HTML Markup. It's flexible and responsive design makes for a great front end framework to build websites with Symfony.
Symfony Standard Edition
Welcome to the Symfony Standard Edition - a fully-functional Symfony2 application that you can use as the skeleton for your new applications.

create-project command to generate a new Symfony application:
php composer.phar create-project symfony/framework-standard-edition path/to/install
Composer will install Symfony and all its dependencies under the

To quickly test Symfony, you can also download an archive of the Standard Edition and unpack it somewhere under your web server root directory.
If you downloaded an archive "without vendors", you also need to install all the necessary dependencies. Download composer (see above) and run the following command:
php composer.phar install
- Checking your System Configuration
Before starting coding, make sure that your local system is properly configured for Symfony.
check.php script from the command line:
The script returns a status code of
0 if all mandatory requirements are met,
config.php script from a browser:
If you get any warnings or recommendations, fix them before moving on.
