Symfony Demo Application
The "Symfony Demo Application" is a reference application created to show how to develop applications following the Symfony Best Practices.
You can also learn about these practices in the official Symfony Book.
- PHP 8.1.0 or higher;
- PDO-SQLite PHP extension enabled;
- and the usual Symfony application requirements.
Download Symfony to install the
symfony binary on your computer and run
$ symfony new --demo my_project
Alternatively, you can use Composer:
$ composer create-project symfony/symfony-demo my_project
If you want to test the demo without installing anything locally, you can also deploy it on Platform.sh, the official Symfony PaaS:
There's no need to configure anything to run the application. If you have installed Symfony binary, run this command:
$ cd my_project/ $ symfony serve
Then access the application in your browser at the given URL (https://localhost:8000 by default).
If you don't have the Symfony binary installed, run
php -S localhost:8000 -t public/
to use the built-in PHP web server or configure a web server like Nginx or
Apache to run the application.
Execute this command to run tests:
$ cd my_project/ $ ./bin/phpunit
