On the Liip blog today, there's a quick post about integrating Symfony2 and Magento, the popular PHP-based ecommerce platform.
So last week four developers sat together on a regular Hackday to see what’s needed to hook up Magento into Symfony. To make this short the outcome is a Magento bundle for Symfony2. When we met in the morning we weren’t even sure what exactly to try out but soon agreed on implementing a Symfony authentication which uses the Magento customer database.
The post talks about some of the issues they came across in their work - mainly a problem with incompatible autoloaders. There were also problems getting the logins to play nicely with each other and each product's session handling. You can find the current results from their hacking in this bundle posted to github.
