Install on a new Symfony project¶
Netgen provides an uptodate installation of Symfony with Netgen Layouts pre-installed. The installation is based on a Symfony Website Skeleton, ready to be used as a base for your new project.
Since this project does not come pre-installed with any kind of backend, you will only be able to use simple blocks like title, rich text, markdown and so on. You will need to provide your own implementation of a backend to use grid and gallery blocks.
Create a database¶
Create a database for your project with:
CREATE DATABASE my_project CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci;
Install Composer and execute the following from a directory of your choice:
$ composer create-project netgen/layouts-symfony-site my_project $ cd my_project
.env.local file in the project root directory to specify database
Install the database¶
Run the following command from the project root to install Netgen Layouts database tables:
$ php bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate --configuration=vendor/netgen/layouts-core/migrations/doctrine.yml
Start the app¶
You can use the built-in Symfony web server to serve the app:
$ php bin/console server:start
After that, open
http://127.0.0.1:8000 in your browser to run the app.
Netgen Layouts admin interface is available at
http://127.0.0.1:8000/nglayouts/admin and you can use
admin as the
username and password to access it.
