Symfony is a French project which has become the PHP framework of reference on a global scale. Most notably, it is used for the platforms Dailymotion, Yahoo, Univadis, etc.
Symfony provides a set of pre-existing components toshift the focus exclusively on project-specific component types. With equal effort, your application’s code is thus of a higher quality and more durable.
This convergence is beneficial for all stakeholding communities. Sourcing a specific competence is also facilitated, since proficiency in Symfony is a common denominator for all these solutions.
More than 2,000 active contributors work together on the product, which is used by more than 300,000 developers in more than 120 countries. Moreover, there are also over 2,000 bundles (the functional extensions of Symfony).
Beyond its notable advantages for international projects, the community has also produced components now standard in the PHP universe, such as Composer and Twig.
Object oriented, it responds to high demands around maintenance and upgradability.
