Symfony is not just a PHP framework, it is the foundation of many other frameworks and applications. Modern web applications such as Drupal or Laravel are all based on Symfony components.

Because the license of Symfony is fully Open Source, you avoid the risk of vendor lock-in. Moreover, Codana always follows the general coding standards, so code and applications can easily be transferred to another developer, if necessary. 

Do you need a web application that excels in stability, security and performance? Codana builds for you the best Symfony applications.

Choosing Symfony is a choice for certainty. 

Why Symfony?

  • Robuust

    Symfony is gekenmerkt door een betrouwbare lange termijn roadmap en een stabiele open source community. Daardoor vormt het voor web applicaties de beste keuze als je zoekt naar lange termijn betrouwbaarheid en stabiliteit.

  • Perfect voor API's of microservices

    Bij het maken van een nieuw Symfony-project worden alleen de kerncomponenten ge├»nstalleerd waardoor het een lichtgewicht is en ideaal voor Microservices of API's.

  • Super snel!

    Volgens benchmarks is Symfony de snelste van de grote PHP frameworks!

Symfony is actually a collection of different components. These components can best be seen as independent and reusable code libraries. Thousands of projects use all these components and they have become standards on which many PHP applications are built.

You can use any of these components in your own application, independent of the Symfony Framework. For example, different components are used in the code of Drupal and Laravel! Almost all big Open Source projects in the PHP world use some of the components that Symfony offers.

Because Symfony is set up with different components and is a kind of box, it is also super performant. Only the components that are needed are installed and other parts can be left out.

Symfony app case


The Symfony family of components is not limited to just the ones for building a custom website, there are several niche libraries created by the same people. One of them is twig, which we also like to use. The speed at which the compiled templates are served is exceptional.

The Symfony project also uses already existing community projects (such as PHPUnit), so our developers are quickly acclimatised to any existing project that also uses these basic components.

The wide variety of packages offered means that for most common things we can use an already built solution from the community.  This way, we can really focus on making your business processes better.
