    Project mention: Linkhut: A Social Bookmarking Site | | 2024-01-09

    Wallabag[0] is useful too if you want a self-hosted bookmarking solution. I'm with Pinboard too, but regularly export my bookmarks so I have a backed up local copy of recent bookmarks I've added to Pinboard.



  • http-foundation

    Defines an object-oriented layer for the HTTP specification

    Project mention: Laravel TrustProxies with multiple proxies | /r/PHPhelp | 2023-03-22

    For ref take a read of the symfony component in use. getTruatedValues() is interesting

  • event-dispatcher

    Provides tools that allow your application components to communicate with each other by dispatching events and listening to them (by symfony)

  • http-kernel

    Provides a structured process for converting a Request into a Response

    Project mention: Reading bundle configuration inside Symfony Compiler Passes | | 2023-05-04

    The compiling of the extension configurations is actually done in a compiler pass. This is called the Merge Pass and is the first compiler pass to be processed. Because of this, once our custom compiler pass reads the configuration of off the extension, we can be sure it is already compiled, cached and ready for use.

  • polyfill-mbstring

    Symfony polyfill for the Mbstring extension

  • Sylius

    Open Source eCommerce Framework on Symfony

    Project mention: Laravel considered harmful | /r/PHP | 2023-04-28

    I think it would be difficult (or much harder) to build something like Sylius on top of Laravel. Especially if you want good code-coverage by tests.

  • routing

    Maps an HTTP request to a set of configuration variables

    Project mention: olvlvl/composer-attribute-collector v1.2.0 | /r/PHP | 2023-03-25

    Packages that support attributes for configuration need to roll out their own attribute collector for PHP doesn't provide a feature to query the entire code base for attributes. For example, here's one of the classes that deal with attributes for symfony/routing: That's what this plugin offers: "a convenient and near zero-cost way to retrieve targets of PHP 8 attributes.". If you're not the maintainer of a package that deals with attributes you probably don't need that.

  • process

    Executes commands in sub-processes (by symfony)

  • Symfony VarDumper

    Provides mechanisms for walking through any arbitrary PHP variable

  • translation

    Provides tools to internationalize your application

  • php-pm

    PPM is a process manager, supercharger and load balancer for modern PHP applications.

    Project mention: PCNTL: Signal not handled intermittently | /r/PHPhelp | 2023-04-18

    Instead I would use long-running scripts that run on their own (started via a service, or another script that manages the long-running processes that runs on a cron - I'd recommend the former). You may also want to look at existing PHP process managers such as php-pm

  • DoctrineBundle

    Symfony Bundle for Doctrine ORM and DBAL

  • filesystem

    Provides basic utilities for the filesystem (by symfony)

  • config

    Helps you find, load, combine, autofill and validate configuration values of any kind (by symfony)
