Symfony is a popular web framework.

Phpactor can provide:

  • Service ID completion when using the container as a service locator.

  • Type inference when accessing services from the container.


The extension must be via. symfony.enabled:

$ phpactor config:set symfony.enabled true

Dependency Injection Features

When in development mode Symfony will dump an XML file which describes the current container. In Symfony 5.x this file is located in var/cache/dev/App_KernelDevDebugContainer.xml but this may be different for earlier versions.

You can set the path to this file with symfony.xml_path


### I don’t get any completion suggestions or type inference.

Ensure that your Symfony cache has been warmed up and that you are in development mode.

Try running ./bin/console cache:clear
