📚 The Notifier is a “new” component that was introduced in Symfony 5.0, the documentation said:

The notifier component can send notifications to different channels. Each channel can integrate with different providers (e.g. Slack or Twilio SMS) by using transports.

It’ very easy to use, you create a Notification and you pass it to the NotifierInterface::send and behind the scene the message will be send to the good provider.

In this example the message will be send to slack, the second parameter of the Notification (['chat/slack'] ) contains the channel here it’s chat and the provider here it’s slack.

👋 Hey, let’s continue our series about how to test services and classes that uses external API, this article is the second, in the first one we saw how to test the Symfony Http Client with behat

In this article back to the basics with PHPUnit 🔥

In our use case, we want to expose an endpoint that says if a user exists or not BUT we don’t have the information in our system (database…).

We have to ask an external API if a user exists, before asking the API we should get a token or a hash (for simplification)…

Each new version of Symfony brings a lot of new features. But version 5.1 offers a new authentication system and this system changes the internal behavior of Symfony security, to make it extensible and more understandable.

In this article, I will do an overview of this new system and other new features.

Let’s activate the new system

💡To use the new system, you must first update the security.yamllike this:

# config/packages/security.yaml
security:
enable_authenticator_manager: true

What is changing? 📚

The authentication workflow is simplified: in the new system, there is only one Listener AuthenticatorManagerListener who will pass the request to…


What is Behat?

Behat is an open source Behavior-Driven Development framework for PHP.

In few words, It helps us to write end-to-end tests with gherkin each line of gherkin is a step and each step corresponds to a PHP function executed to assert or execute the statement.

Example of end-to-end test with behat :

Our use case, test the PUT operation of an API

The test could be like :

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of functional tests with PHPUnit, I found them “ugly” and some of them can be difficult to read so I prefer to hijack Behat of its first purpose (BDD testing)…


Everybody wants to build robust applications but as the AWS CTO put it so well: “Everything fails, all the time". This is why, as a professional, you should have an excellent disaster recovery.

When your application is down the sooner you know it, the more you increase your chances of getting back to normal.

The health check consists to ping a server and checks the status code, We will build a PHP script that ping servers and sends notifications to a Slack channel if the server returns a server error (between 500 and 600).

We will use vanilla PHP, the…

Une des fonctionnalités les plus puissante de Symfony est le container de service et l’injection de dépendance, il permet de manipuler la définition des services de différentes manières et permet de résoudre des problèmes complexe avec des solutions simple.

Dans cet article, je vais vous montrer comment vous pouvez manipuler la définition d’un service au runtime 🚀.

Notre cas d’utilisation est simple, nous avons une application dans de nombreux pays, chaque pays a des paramètres spécifiques mais ils ont le même code source applicatif, et selon l’endroit où l’application est déployée, nous voulons un debugger spécifique.

One of the most powerful features of Symfony is the service container and the dependency injection, it allows us to deal with services definition in many ways and help us to solve some complex problems in an easy way…

In this article, I’ll show how you can deal with service definition at the runtime 🚀

Our use case is simple we have an application in many countries, each country has specific parameters but they have the same base code, and depends on where the application is deployed we want a specific debug.

In the French Context, we have…
