The European Commission Publishes its First Public Symfony Application

The European Commission is the executive branch of the European Union (EU), responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, and managing the day-to-day business of the EU.

In 2019, the European Commission organized several hackathons to improve the code of Open Source projects like Symfony and they also funded a security bug bounty program for Symfony. A few months later, they published their first Symfony bundles which provide support for CAS and EU Login authentication.

The European Commission has developed several internal applications based on Symfony, but a few days ago it went a bit further and published its first public Symfony application.

The application is the Food Labelling Information System, which provides information in tens of languages about the legal requirements of the labelling of food products sold in the European Union.

Technically, the application is divided into two different parts. The front-end application uses AngularJS and is based on the eUI components. The backend is made with Symfony 5 and API Platform.

Thanks to Pol Dellaiera, who helped develop this application, for sharing some insights about it. We hope to see more Symfony-powered public applications developed by the European Commission soon!
