What is Symfony?

  1. Fast and has strong performative functions. It`ll take much less time to perform all operations
  2. Flexibility, depicted by means of 3-in-1 framework: Full Stack (proposes lots of features), Brick by brick (building a framework according to your needs), Microframework (offering the ability to develop a specific way to use the project)
  3. Expandability. From the smallest brick to the complete core itself, everything is presented as a “bundle”. The system of bundles offers to change everything within Symfony
  4. Joy of development. The application allows web designers to focus on the actual highlights of it and to both fully validate the role and improve the productivity. There is also a legendary Web Debug Toolbar, detailed error pages and even native security!

Symfony In Real World

Symfony is a simple way to create a quality project without wasting time and efforts. A lot of projects have already used Symfony and regarded its best features. Here are just a couple of them:

Why You Should Implement Symfony

The easiest way of building a new project is to take an existing CMS like WordPress. However, there are a couple of substantial problems with this approach.

The major issue is that you get stuck with the basic features every of these systems offer. If your project has any specific requirements outside them, you are bound to either use special plugins, or develop your own extensions. The former is a threat to security, usability and speed. The latter is a huge waste of time and money.

What does it all mean? Essentialy, if you have specific requirements regarding your project or plan to implement lots of new options in the future, you are much better of with custom solutions, based on modern frameworks, from the start.
