Technical informations

This project use symfony2 framework because of the his good project architecture. We use Doctrine for entities, Symfony Form Types for forms using entities, Symfony Controllers to link Entities and Twig views or HttpFoundation Responses.

To purpose dynamic content, we use socket.io from node.js because this component can notify the web browser.

To link node.js and symfony2, we use elephant.io component because it's a PHP socket.io implementation.

We use node.js server on two ports, one listening symfony2 and one listening web browser client :

  1. Web browser send a request to symfony2
  2. symfony2 notify node.js through elephant.io_
  3. node.js push notification to the Web browser
