In this video we look at the Symfony 2 plugins available for PHPStorm.
First we go through how to find the plugin and install it.
Then we cover Symfony 2 Clickable Views plugin, and lastly the bigger Symfony 2 plugin.
The clickable views plugin is pretty simple, it gives us a shortcut to ctrl + click (Windows / Linux) or cmd + click (Mac) our twig template paths, which will then load up the related template for us. Sweet.
The Symfony 2 plugin requires enabling per project, especially if you are always starting up new projects like I am.
However, once you have the plugin installed and enabled you do get access to some really cool stuff (not all of it always works however).
Most of the stuff in here is timesaver functionality, requiring a little bit of knowledge of Symfony before it truly becomes useful. However, the code completion is super beneficial, so you should check this out regardless of your level of Symfony expertise.
