Learning Silex

Silex is a micro framework built with symfony. It's definately peaked my interest because of it's simplicity. It's also talk me a lot about the symfony architecture and workflow and it's quirks E.g. why one has to register routes in a yml file and register bundles in the app file, etc. A lot of those conventions are used in silex as well but just abstracted and simplified.

Here are some things I've learned over the couple days.

  • Silex Routes are created and with a closure
  • Silex uses providers in which you can access the objects through the application object.
  • In order to access your object it's best if you use create a service

I've started to create a collection of decent Silex walkthroughs:
