This item was not updated in last three versions of the Radar. Should it have appeared in one of the more recent editions, there is a good chance it remains pertinent.

Regrettably, our capacity to consistently revisit items from past Radar editions is limited.

Symfony is an open-source PHP framework that includes a set of reusable components. Since Symfony is heavily inspired by the Spring framework, it made sense for us to adopt the framework for our PHP projects.

For us, Symfony is very easy to use and offers a lot of flexibility at the same time. We can either use just some of the Symfony components or go full-stack Symfony all the way. This allows us to mix and match whatever makes the most sense for the project we are working on.

Additionally, Symfony is the basis for other frameworks and toolings like API Platform or Sylius which we started using more and more.
