In this video we look at how to enable Symfony 2 integration with any of the different Suites that are available in a Codeception project.

This will also cover the Doctrine2 module, which is likely very heavily tied to your Symfony project.

The Symfony module gives us a number of helper methods which can make our testing easier.

The key thing to remember is to run the build command after you have added in new modules:

php vendor/codeception/codeception/codecept build

If you're unsure about Symfony environments, be sure to check out this link.

Lastly, we will look at how to ensure we have the various new classes that are created so we gain proper code completion in PHP Storm.
