Last week, I published the repositories for the Symfony recipes. The main repository is at, and the contrib one at Both are public. Additions and feedback welcomed.

Today, I want to share with you a small recording I have just made that shows how it feels to use Symfony Flex when creating a new project. It also demonstrates how to add more dependencies and illustrate the auto-configuration part I have written about in my previous blogs posts about Symfony 4. Instead of creating a classical website, this video levers the API Platform recipe recently added to create an API in just a few commands.
