This is a boilerplate I've made to gain time when I need to kickstart projects

This boilerplate comes with all the bundles above enabled and preconfigured

The easiest way to get started is to clone the repository:

$ mkdir -p web/uploads/posts

#setup ACL (refer to the symfony documentation.
$ HTTPDUSER=`ps aux | grep -E '[a]pache|[h]ttpd|[_]www|[w]ww-data|[n]ginx' | grep -v root | head -1 | cut -d\  -f1`
$ sudo setfacl -R -m u:"$HTTPDUSER":rwX -m u:`whoami`:rwX app/cache app/logs web/uploads
$ sudo setfacl -dR -m u:"$HTTPDUSER":rwX -m u:`whoami`:rwX app/cache app/logs web/uploads

Starter Kit

Go to http://www.myproject.local/app_dev.php/admin to have a look on what's coming with this bundle.

This boilerplate also comes with 4 customs bundle :

  • UserBundle (inherits of FOSUserBundle to easily customize the entity) : very simple user bundle with a backoffice
  • NumerogeekBlogBundle : a very simple blog bundle with a backoffice
  • AppBundle : The one from the symfony installer, so you can kickstart your project right now !
  • AdminBundle : which is the core of the admin part. There is not much in there because it mostly use the AvanzuAdminBundle
  • FixturesBundle : see below.

What's the fixtures Bundle ?

Usually when you start a project, you need some dummy data. Instead of having a fixtures folder in each bundles, I have made a fixtures bundle which is basically just a folder to store all the fixtures of your project.

about MremiContact Bundle

The bundle comes fully configurated for you. I like to store the sent messages in the database, just in case there's a problem with the mail transport. If you want to unactivate the storage in DB, you can set the store_data to false in the config.yml. For any further documentation, check the MremiContactBundle Documentation.
