Working With Controllers in Symfony 2
May 15, 2014 @ 10:44:34

The NetTuts.com site has posted a new screencast looking at using one particular part of a Symfony2-based application, the controllers. In this new addition to their series (there's more on routing and some of the basics) they introduce you to the basic handling of controllers and how to make them work.

Today we'll take a quick look at controllers from within Symfony 2. The easiest way to get started learning, is to just dive right in, see some code examples and I'll explain everything as we proceed. [...] I hope this video has show you how easy and fun controllers are to work with in Symfony 2. We can use the console to generate them and link everything up so that it all works seamlessly.

In the screencast, they start with the "WelcomeController" to show you the basic structure of the class and the action methods they hold. There's also an example of the commands you'll need to do the controller generation and what all is included in the result (controller, template, route, etc).
