Symfony is a PHP web application framework that offers a set of reusable PHP components and libraries. Symfony was published originally as free software on October 18, 2005, and later released under the MIT license. Symfony speeds up the creation and maintenance of web applications by eliminating repetitive coding tasks. One of the least bloated platforms available, Symfony also has a low performance overhead utilizing bytecode cache. Symfony is designed for building complex applications in an enterprise context, offering developers full control over each configuration including directory structure and implementation of foreign libraries.
With Symfony almost everything can be customized, which is a blessing and a curse. To use it properly you really need to have a fair amount of experience seeing what exactly works best, and what becomes a time sync to code with little to show in return. At Mentel we have many years of experience working in this area and are able to quickly let you know if Symfony is the right software solution for each of your particular projects.
