Symfony Interview Questions
Symfony has a set of reusable PHP components that power the framework and other applications:
– HttpFoundation: Represents HTTP messages with object-oriented classes.
– Routing: Manages URL routing and associates routes with controllers.
– EventDispatcher: Allows for decoupling components and modules using an event-driven approach.
– DependencyInjection: Provides a way to manage services and configurations.
– Console: Enables command-line interface tool creation.
– ORM (Doctrine): Provides a way to work with databases using Object-Relational Mapping.
– Twig: The default templating engine for rendering views.
The service container (or dependency injection container) is a powerful tool in Symfony to manage object dependencies and configure and store instances of objects. It helps in achieving a decoupled and modular application architecture.
When a request hits a Symfony application:
- The front controller (“public/index.php”) handles the request.
- The HttpKernel handles the request to generate a response.
- Routing determines which controller should process the request.
- The EventDispatcher can trigger several events during request handling, allowing for customization at various points.
- The controller processes the request and returns a response, which gets sent back to the client.
Symfony uses Doctrine, which has a migrations mechanism. By using the “doctrine:migrations:diff” command, developers can generate migration files based on the difference between the current database schema and the entities. The “doctrine:migrations:migrate” command is then used to apply these migrations.
Create a class in the “Command” directory of a bundle or the main application. This class should extend “Symfony\Component\Console\Command\Command”. Define the command’s name, arguments, and options in the “configure” method, and the logic in the “execute” method.
Symfony Flex is a tool that automates mundane tasks when setting up or managing Symfony projects. Symfony Recipes are a set of automated instructions to integrate third-party packages into Symfony applications. Together, they simplify the process of adding and managing Symfony extensions.
Symfony has a built-in Translation component. You define translation keys and their corresponding translations in designated files (e.g., “.xlf” or “.yaml”). In templates, you can use the “trans” filter, and in PHP code, you’d use the “trans” method from the “Translator” service.
Symfony’s Security component provides authentication and authorization mechanisms. It includes firewalls, access control rules, roles, voters, and providers. The framework handles common vulnerabilities, ensuring protection against risks like SQL injection, CSRF, and session hijacking.
A component is a set of related classes that add specific functionality with minimal dependencies. A bundle is a plugin or module for the Symfony framework that can bundle together multiple related components, configuration, and views to add functionality to Symfony applications.
Create a custom Symfony bundle or a Composer package to encapsulate the shared functionality. This can then be imported and used in multiple Symfony projects.
The Symfony Profiler provides detailed debugging and performance metrics for a request-response cycle. It gives insights into routes, controllers, templates, database queries, forms, security, and more, helping developers optimize and debug their applications.
Symfony’s “Session” component provides object-oriented access to session management. You can use the “Session” interface to set, get, and remove session variables, as well as control other aspects of the session.
MakerBundle is a bundle in Symfony that facilitates rapid application development by generating boilerplate code for controllers, entities, forms, and more. It streamlines common tasks and reduces manual coding effort.
Symfony’s Form component allows for building, rendering, and handling forms. You can create a form class, bind it to an entity, render it in a template using form helpers, and handle submissions in a controller. It also supports data validation, CSRF protection, and form theming.
These are different configurations and runtime environments in Symfony:
– dev: Used during development. Includes debugging tools and verbose logging.
– test: Used for running automated tests. Might mock certain services or have different database configurations.
– prod: Production environment. Optimized for performance, with minimal logging
