Symfony CLI

Symfony CLI is a must-have tool when developing Symfony applications on your local machine. It includes the Symfony Local Server, the best way to run local Symfony applications. This week Symfony CLI released its new 4.18.0 and 4.18.1 versions with the following changes:

  • Add Github actions support to security:check
  • Add support for Composer 2 (symfony composer now looks for a composer1 or composer2 binary depending on composer.lock and falls back to composer if not found)
  • Make SymfonyCloud automatically use Composer 1 or 2 depending on composer.lock
  • Add support for installing PHP extensions directly from variables defined in .symfony.cloud.yaml
