Symfony Development using PhpStorm

Posted on by Mikhail Vink

symfony-logoFor more than a year developers working on projects built with Symfony2 framework have enjoyed dedicated Symfony2 Open Source plugin maintained by Daniel Espendiller.

With over 730,000 downloads to date, this plugin enhances PhpStorm’s advanced features, adding many Symfony2-specific features using extension points provided in the IDE for third-party plugin authors.

Today we are glad to publish a series of tutorials prepared by JetBrains Technical Evangelist Maarten Balliauw, covering the entire workflow of Symfony2 web applications development using PhpStorm IDE with Symfony2 plugin.

Have a look at the table of contents here, and make sure to proceed reading full Symfony Development using PhpStorm tutorial.

Please report all the feedback, bugs and feature requests related to the Symfony2 plugin directly to the plugin issue tracker.

PhpStorm team is grateful to Daniel Espendiller for continuous maintenance of Symfony2 and many other plugins for the IDE.

We would be glad to see more and more 3rd-party plugins developed by the community. If you are missing any extension point or would like to get advice on plugin development, do reach out to the PhpStorm core team via comments, issue tracker, twitter, or any other channel. See the PhpStorm Plugin Development page for more information.

Develop with pleasure!

    The timing for this is just perfect. I just started digging into symfony and phpstorm a week ago and I am already loving it 😉

      I don’t believe codeIgniter will be supported… There’s an open ticket for that in the issue tracker if you would like to up-vote it, but the future of codeIgniter is a bit sketchy at the present time…

      The symfony support has been around in PHPStorm for quite a time now, just nobody came out with an article like this.

      Also the framework that’s recently been gathering momentum is laravel, if you’ve got the time give it a shot 🙂

      For now there is really no ETA for CodeIgniter. Here is the link for the feature request: .

      This is a community plugin, so make your own :).

    Anyone know if the Doctrine support can be invoked in other projects that use Doctrine. Like, ZendFramework 2, perhaps? The code completion in Query Builder would be very handy.
