Setup

Video not working?

It looks like your browser may not support the H264 codec. If you're using Linux, try a different browser or try installing the gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-good packages.

Thanks! This saves us from needing to use Flash or encode videos in multiple formats. And that let's us get back to making more videos :). But as always, please feel free to message us.

Hey guys! If you've watched even one video on KnpU - please tell me that you have - then you've seen me using PHPStorm.

Now think about how much you use your editor. If you work 40 hours a week I bet you stare deeply into your editor at least 20 of those hours. So over a year, that's... let's see here - carry the one - over 1,000 hours!

So if you could learn something that saves you a few seconds now, that's going to mean you're saving 10's of hours in the future.

Particularly in Symfony development, mastering PHPStorm is going to completely speed up the way you develop and help you catch mistakes you may have missed otherwise.

If you've never used PHPStorm before it does have a free trial period that you can use to see if it's going to work for you.

UI Updates

I'm working with a fresh version of PHPStorm, this is not how I want my development environment to look - all this white is stressing me out. So download your own copy and let's customize this thing together.

If I open any of my files right now you'll see that they look pretty ugly. Let's clean that up first: open up preferences and in Appearance under Appearance & Behavior you can select your theme, change that to Darcula.

(insert Dracular slow laugh here)

This is the theme of the UI which also goes and sets the scheme for the editor. And this is already so much better. Staring into a white screen for 1,000+ hours a year is very similar to just staring at a lightbulb -- not so great on the eyes.

Speaking of eyes, I'd like to see my font size a bit bigger here. Back to preferences, on a mac its shortcut is , so I'll start using that. On Windows and Linux, it's the longer Ctrl+Alt+S - you can check out the key mappings under the keymap section, to see and simplify these.

Use this search to look for font. This pulls up a few things, general appearance, colors & fonts. Let's pick font here and there's font size.

I can't immediately change the font size I've got because that would change the Darcula scheme. So first let's click 'save as' so we can customize this, save it as 'darcula mine'. And now I can change the font size to 14 and give it a line spacing of say 1.2. Ahh so much better.

Project Organization

Over here on the left, you can see the tuts and knpu directories. I use these to help me build this tutorial - but when I'm coding, I don't want to see them. Any time you have a directory that you don't want PHPStorm to look into, or that you just don't want to see, you can hide it. Right click tuts, find 'mark directory as' and select 'excluded'. In a second that will hide this for me. Let's also do this on the knpu directory.

And now we can change the view in the upper left from 'project' to 'project files'. Let's also exclude this .idea directory. If you ever need to see those in the tree again you can just switch back to 'project' and they'll reappear. Then you can even unmark them if you want to.

Plugins

Okay back to the 'project files' view. So PHPStorm is the best editor I've ever seen. But the real power with Symfony comes from an amazing plugin. Back in preferences if you search for Symfony it brings you to a plugin spot. Click 'Browse Repositories', here you see the community plugins for Symfony and there's one called the 'Symfony2 Plugin'.

Tip

The "Symfony2 Plugin" was renamed to "Symfony Support" - install this instead

To prove how great it is just look at its 1.2 million downloads. So press the 'Install Plugin' button to get this added to our IDE.

The other plugin that you are definitely going to want to install is this called 'PHP Annotations'. Find that one in the search and install it. Perfect.

Close out of this window, and then press ok and restart PHPStorm.

You only need to install the Symfony plugin once, but each time you start a new project you will need to enable it. Back in preferences, search Symfony and check the 'Enable Plugin for this Project' checkbox. Do that just one time per project - not bad!

The checkbox had a note that it requires a restart, that's mostly not true. But I am going to restart one more time because there are a few small features that will not work until you do this.

Now we're really ready to go! I've already got my my site running on localhost:8000 and we've got a nice looking 404 page since there isn't anything inside of here yet.

Tip

To run the website, execute in your terminal:

php app/console server:run

And open the homepage at http://localhost:8000/

Just to prove that the Symfony Plugin is installed and running, in the bottom right of PHPStorm you should see a little Symfony menu. Clicking it gives you a quick way to jump into the profiler for any recent requests.

Now that our editor is all setup let's get down to work!

    Hey Ryan!

    Ah! Trouble right out of the gate! Let's see what we can figure out :).

    Hmm. Indeed PhpStorm is misbehaving badly. Let's look at a few things:

    > class must be declared as abstract or implement methods

    The fact that your code works, but you get this error, first makes me think that PhpStorm may be seeing multiple instances of the core code in your project. This is a *total* guess. But if, for example, PhpStorm saw 2 core Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Kernel classes from 2 different Symfony installs (like if you had 2 projects open in one PhpStorm directory, or something), then it could get confused and be trying to use the same one. There's an easy way to check this: hold Cmd (or Ctrl) and click the word Kernel on this line at the top of *your* Kernel.php file:


    use Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Kernel as BaseKernel;

    If you jump straight to the core file, then this is *not* the problem. If you get a little selector for you to choose *which* Kernel class to open, then it might be and you should investigate where the duplicate copy is coming from.

    > Expected { " between the : and ? .

    I agree that this 100% sounds like PhpStorm is parsing this code as PHP 7.1 (or older) code. So, you checked the same place I would. Just to triple check, the settings should be under "Languages & Frameworks -> PHP" and then there is a selector for "PHP Language Level". There also a somewhat related screen: "Languages & Frameworks -> PHP -> Composer". If you click "Synchronize IDE Settings with composer.json", then it should read the "require.php" version from your composer.json file and use *that* as your PHP version. But I'm not sure this could be the *cause* of your problem, as I believe this checkbox is "sort of" a convenient way to set the "PHP Language Level" for you.

    I'd also make sure you have the latest PhpStorm version. This behavior is, indeed, "so bad" that it feels like something is very wrong :).

    Cheers!

    Hi All, trying to get PHPStorm to play nice with Symfony 5. I have a fresh install of Symfony 5 and right out of the box PHPStorm shows an error in Symfony's /src/kernel.php file stating that the "class must be declared as abstract or implement methods..." . So I ignored this since the site actually loads fine as I get the default Symfony landing page. Continuing on, I created an entity, and once again PHPStorm is drawing red underlines on almost everything. For example, PHPStorm is complaining about the code below (generated by Symfony when creating a entity) with an error "Expected { " between the : and ? . It's difficult to identify the real problems in my code when the IDE is showing so many errors for code that is actually working. It's as if PHPStorm doesn't recognize the modern PHP 7.2/Symfony syntax. I have my PHPStorm PHP settings set to appropriate PHP 7.2 version. FYI, this occurs regardless of whether "Symfony Support" plugin is enabled or not and furthermore the plugin clearly states it is only compatible with Symfony 2 and 3. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me crazy.

    public function getTitle(): ?string
    {
    return $this->title;
    }

    Hey Steve Linberg

    Yea, I feel you... When Symfony3 was just released, I remember those features used to work on PHPStorm. I believe it's a problem related to the plugin instead of the IDE. I found this page where you can create a new issue https://github.com/Haehnche...

    Cheers!

  • 2020-05-13 Steve Linberg

    Thanks Diego. Those might be the default settings for the plugin; at any rate, they're the current settings I have, so that's not the issue.

    I just have an aversion to not knowing why something's not working; I hate when things fail silently. There has to be a reason these menus are present in other projects - like the ones from the course downloads here - but not in ones I create. :/ Even if it's not critically important on its own, it means something's not configured correctly, but I don't even know who to ask. Seems like it's an issue with the plugin creator, not PHPStorm itself? But there were only a couple of old comments on the plugin page and I don't even know if it's being actively maintained.

  • 2020-05-13 Diego Aguiar

    Hey Steve Linberg

    The one trick I know to make Symfony plugin work a bit better is to tweak its config. Go to
    settings -> Languages & Frameworks -> PHP -> Symfony
    and change:
    Translation root path: var/cache/dev/translations
    Web directory: public

    It won't make the file templates to appear but I think you don't need them anymore. If you install MakerBundle on your project, you will have a command for creating boilerplate forms, entities, commands, controllers, CRUD, and much more. Give it a check: https://symfony.com/doc/cur...

    I hope it helps. Cheers!

  • 2020-05-13 weaverryan

    Hey Steve Linberg!

    Yea, I'm really sorry about this :(. We got hit by a small storm if issue all at once. Well, really, it was a *tiny* number of issues on PHP 7.4, but they affected *many* tutorials. So, to be honest, we're playing catch up with getting thing solved correctly. To your point about knowing which tutorials are new or old, we *almost* deployed a feature today that would show the composer.json file for all tutorials. Actually, we did deploy it, but I rolled it back temporarily because of a few UX things (sorry!). The point is, we're *very* close to much more transparency.

    Overall, apart form some hiccups we're fixing (and that largely, we created), most tutorials (unless they actually say they are archived) work on any version of PHP. Actually, PHP 7.4 was the big problem which caused us to upgrade some tutorials (which we messed up on some tutorials) - most tutorials were working fine on PHP 7.3 and before (with a few exceptions on 7.3). And when they are broken, it's for a really silly (but annoying) reason - some deep dependency that has some slight code that PHP doesn't like on a new version. It's nothing that will affect learning, assuming you can get the project up and running without issues, of course :).

    So, the goal is 2 things, and soon:

    1) Transparency of what version of libraries are used on a tutorial
    2) Guaranteeing that the downloaded code works in all PHP versions. Or, if we *do* decide to not update a tutorial to work for (for example) PHP 7.4, making it very obvious when you download the code. No tutorial at this point should *require* PHP 7.4 (that was a mistake): we're actually quite conservative with PHP versions, as we want the tutorials to work for as many people as possible.

    Anyways, if you have any doubts or questions on anything, just let me know :). I've been around Symfony for a *long* time and (amazingly) around Drupal also for many years now, though I am no qualified Drupal dev, I will admit ;).

    Cheers!

  • 2020-05-12 Steve Linberg

    It seems like maybe the Symfony plugin for PHPStorm isn't compatible with Symfony 5, or maybe even 4. It's hard to know, but I'm trying to get a current app skeleton going via "composer create-project symfony/website-skeleton testsite", which is what the Symfony documentation says to do, and I've activate the plugin for the PHPStorm project and the little "Symfony" menu appears in the lower right, but the additional file templates (Controller, CompilerPass, Form, etc) are never added to the "New" menu described in this tutorial, and I can't figure out why.

    The filles in this tutorial are using Symfony 3.3.10. Can you advise on compatibility with 5? Will the additional chapters in this tutorial work with it? I don't want to downgrade Symfony just to work with the editor.

  • 2020-05-12 Steve Linberg

    Thanks Ryan. The courses aren't dated in any way that I can see, other than looking for the age of the oldest comment, so it's hard to identify (as a new subscriber anyway) which courses are old. Current OSX ships with PHP 7.3.11, so having things not work with PHP 7.3 is a pretty big problem. I'm trying to bootstrap into Symfony to decide whether to migrate a Drupal 7 app forward to Drupal 8 (or really 9) or build it in Symfony since it doesn't leverage much of Drupal's core other than logins and the form API... but if things in the main development pipelines here require old versions of PHP, it's not going to work; I need some of the language features of 7.4 in the runtime environment, and it's a pain to maintain older versions of PHP to run the dev environment.

    I'm sympathetic to the difficulties of keeping things up to date, but it's pretty important. If you could maybe make some documentation available very soon about the 7.3/7.4 issues, so at least your subscribers are aware of them while you work on them, it would help. I lost half a day working on this yesterday while just trying to go through the first couple of videos in this series, and while it's one way to learn, it's not my preferred way :/

  • 2020-05-12 weaverryan

    Hey Steve Linberg!

    That's our bad - it's something we're working on right now. Both PHP 7.3 and 7.4 caused some issues with some older dependencies of various tutorials. Basically, a tutorial works fine in 7.2 or earlier, but in 7.3 and 7.4, they break due to a bug in an old dependency. We're currently working on:

    A) Upgrading some of those dependencies to avoid this
    B) Or (in some cases) making the supported PHP version more transparent so that if we can't, for some reason upgrade the dependencies in a tutorial, you would at least get a proper error from Composer that tells you that the code will only work on, for example, 7.2 or lower (and we'd like to put this info right in front if you when you download the code).

    So, apologies for this! Both php 7.3 (and especially 7.4) came with a few minor changes that really caused havok in some of our older tutorials. We're working to fix this systematically so that we can be aware of these issues in the future and roll out fixes across the board.

    Cheers!

  • 2020-05-12 weaverryan

    Hey Steve Linberg!

    Ah! You're right! Shame on me. This is a bit of an older tutorial, and apparently I forgot to correctly add the README :/. We will get that updated!

    Thanks!

  • 2020-05-11 Steve Linberg

    FYI, start/README.md doesn't have any bootstrap instructions or mention running "composer install". It just says:


    Lean and Mean Dev with PhpStorm (for Symfony)

    Hiya!

    This is the code, script and other Tom-foolery for the tutorial that you can find here:

    http://knpuniversity.com/sc...

    Cheers!
  • 2020-05-11 Steve Linberg

    You should probably mention the following:

    1. Running "composer install" from the "start" directory is part of the setup process to be able to launch PhpStorm and have it work as shown in the video
    2. The Symfony plugin fails silently on creating new Symfony type files (like Controller) unless "composer install" has previously been run
    3. "composer install" doesn't work (on OSX at least) on PHP 7.3 or 7.4, so if you're running one of those, you apparently need to downgrade to 7.2 or earlier:

    [Symfony\Component\Debug\Exception\ContextErrorException]
    Warning: "continue" targeting switch is equivalent to "break". Did you mean to use "continue 2"?

    I was able to run "composer install" by manually specifying an older php 7.2 binary that I still had installed:

    /Applications/DevDesktop/php7_2_x64/bin/php /usr/local/bin/composer install

    (This is with Composer version 1.10.6)

  • 2020-02-07 Diego Aguiar

    Hey Robertas Šabrinskas

    Yeah, this tutorial is about PHPStorm mostly, so you won't learn about Symfony. Our introduction tutorial to Symfony4 is this one https://symfonycasts.com/sc...
    after that, you can follow this track: https://symfonycasts.com/tr...
    and when you finish with that, you can see what's new in Symfony5 and how to upgrade from Symfony4: https://symfonycasts.com/sc...

    We will deliver more content focused on Symfony5 but the reality is that Symfony didn't change too much from 4 to 5

    Cheers!

  • 2020-02-06 Robertas Šabrinskas

    Oh hey weaverryan

    Probably I chose wrong to start Symfony from here. Please point the way for starting with Symfony.

  • 2020-02-04 weaverryan

    Hey Robertas Šabrinskas!

    The "WARNING unable to find the application log" warning is ok - I sometimes get this too - it just happens if you start your web server but haven't loaded any pages yet. In that situation, Symfony hasn't created any log files yet, so the server doesn't see it. No big deal.

    The other error *is* a bigger deal :). By the way, are you coding through this tutorial as a way to learn more about PhpStorm? Or some different reason? I ask because the code behind this tutorial now uses an older version of Symfony. If you're trying to learn Symfony itself, I would point you somewhere else. But if you want to get the code for this tutorial working so you can try what we're trying, we can definitely help with that!

    The overall problem is that - because this tutorial is a little old - it looks like we didn't include very good instructions for setting it up! Gasp! That's our bad! Usually, when you download a course code and unzip it, inside the "start/" directory, you will find a README.md file with all the setup details. In this case, that file exists, but doesn't contain anything useful. Sorry about that :/. Here are the setup steps:

    1) Download the course code, unzip it, and find the "start/" directory
    2) Inside the start/ directory, run: composer install (it looks like you've already done that!)
    3) Typically, when you finish the previous command, some interactive prompt will ask you questions about your database configuration and other things. That information is used to create that missing app/config/parameters.yml file. It looks like that didn't happen for you, for some reason. But, that's not really a big deal. Instead, copy app/config/parameters.yml.dist to app/config/parameters.yml. Then, open that file and customize the database connection information to something that will work on your machine.
    4) Then, initialize the database by running:


    php app/console doctrine:database:create

    5) Finally, run symfony server:start and go to http://localhost:8000 in your browser.

    Please let me know if that helps! Sorry for the missing details :).

    Cheers!

  • 2020-02-03 Robertas Šabrinskas

  • 2020-01-13 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Robertas,

    So, yeah, thanks to the error message now I could say you didn't execute "composer install" in your project... sounds like you don't have vendors, i.e. vendor/ folder in your project root directory. Did you download the course code from SymfonyCasts? Are you in start/ directory? In both start/ and finish/ directories of downloaded source code you will find README.md file that contains some steps to bootstrap the project. One of those steps should be go to the project root folder in your terminal tab and run "composer install" command. Keep in mind that you also need to have Composer installed globally in your system. You can do it by following the instructions on official website: https://getcomposer.org/dow... if you haven't done this yet.

    So, this error looks totally unrelated to PhpStorm at all, but I understand that it's a huge blocker for you to be able to move forward. So, let's fix it!

    Let me know if it helps to get rid of this error message.

    Cheers!

  • 2020-01-13 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey again!

    Ah, welcome! Thanks for giving me your background - that's very helpful. I'm the opposite - a guy with a ton of Symfony experience, but I'm still learning Drupal 8, so I know how it is :).

    To fix this issue, you need to install your vendors via composer. I realize that we need to do a better job with the setup README instructions - sometimes I assume that certain tutorials are only watched by devs with a bunch of Symfony experience already :). Anyways, here is a good README: https://github.com/knpunive.... You don't think you'll need to do the Doctrine database steps - so you can skip those (but are free to do them if you want).

    For starting with Symfony, I'd recommend starting here: http://knpuniversity.com/sc.... The tutorials are not perfectly up to date, but it's the best place to start (and we're updating them right now!).

    Cheers!

    Hello,

    I ran "php app/console server:run" from start directory and got this error:

    "Warning: require_once(/Users/dougouverson/Sites/phpstorm/start/app/bootstrap.php.cache): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Users/dougouverson/Sites/phpstorm/start/app/console on line 10

    Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/Users/dougouverson/Sites/phpstorm/start/app/bootstrap.php.cache' (include_path='.:') in /Users/dougouverson/Sites/phpstorm/start/app/console on line 10"

    Could you please recommend a video or resource to help me with getting symfony running on my Mac.

    FYI: I'm a Drupal site-builder, learning PHP programming within Drupal 8 content. I'm not a complete newbie (I have 8+ years experience as sysadmin), but I am new to symfony.

    Thank you, and kind regards,

    Hi there!

    To actually get the application running, go into your terminal and run this command (from inside the project's directory):


    php app/console server:run

    You can see more about this here: http://knpuniversity.com/sc...

    I don't think I mentioned this in the screencast - this is more a "how do I get my Symfony app" running - it's not related to PhpStorm. But, I probably should have mentioned it :).

    Cheers!

    Following along with no issues, until the very end: http://localhost:8000 did not produce symfony page, and no symfony menu in bottom right-hand. I do have the plugin installed; and I did restart PhpStorm. I'm running 10.0
