Hello, friends. Hope you are well. There are many PHP frameworks but in this post, you will learn how to install Symfony. Maybe this is one of the most advanced ones out there.

Symfony is an entire web development platform that includes a framework:

The leading PHP framework to create websites and web applications. Built on top of the Symfony Components.

One of the main advantages of Symfony is that it has an MIT license, which is the same as a permissive free software license.

On the other hand, it uses the Model – View – Controller pattern that is so widespread among developers. Also, it allows you to create from simple websites to macro projects and complex applications all hand in hand with a huge community of users.

Symfony can be installed via composer or from your installer which is the easiest and most feasible option.

Now configure the email and user of your user in Git.

git config --global user.email "[email protected]"
git config --global user.name "Angelo"

Now you can create a new project by running it.

symfony new example --full

Note: You have to replace example with the name of your project.

And now you can start working with your text editor like Visual Studio Code.
