Les Joies de SUPINFO

Welcome to the public repository for Les Joies de SUPINFO project!

The project is currently hosted at joies-de-supinfo.fr.

This project is based on Symfony2. But at first, we wrote it in vanilla PHP : you can check the original sources (in the vanilla-php branch), but it is neither used nor maintained anymore.

If you want to contribute, here's how!


Here is a checklist for running a functional project:

  • Fork the repository
  • Clone it git clone git@github.com:your_username/Les-Joies-de-Supinfo.git
  • Setup your Symfony environment using this awesome official documentation doc

With all these things set, you should be able to contribute! If you have any problem, don't hesitate to contact us or open an issue here on GitHub.

Technical information


We're using memcached to cache the Facebook likes count for each gif. This avoids polling Facebook API at every page load, which reduces significantly pages loading times.

Both development environments & production server must have php5-memcached & memcached packages installed.

Cron configuration

To publish gifs without a manual action, a cron is configured on the server to automatically publish accepted gifs. Cron jobs are set to execute a custom command, ljds:publish:

# Weekdays (twice a day)
# Morning
0 11 * * 1-5 /var/www/joies-de-supinfo/app/console ljds:publish
0 11 * * 1-5 /var/www/joies-de-supinfo/app/console ljds:publish
# Afternoon
0 17 * * 1-5 /var/www/joies-de-supinfo/app/console ljds:publish

# Week-end (once a day)
0 16 * * 6-7 /var/www/joies-de-supinfo/app/console ljds:publish


You can either get the last published gif or a random one by dropping a GET request on the following URLS:

In both case, you'll receive a JSON-encoded response such as this one:

	caption: "Quand ton CM passe dans l'open space ",
	file: "http://media0.giphy.com/media/phaN2NxXBzHMs/giphy.gif",
	permalink: "http://www.joies-de-supinfo.fr/gif/quand-ton-cm-passe-dans-lopen-space-",
	type: "gif"

Depending on the type attribute (either gif, webm or mp4), you may want to handle it differently. Please read gif.html.twig to see how we handle this.
