Advantages of Symfony:

  • Fast and easy development: Symfony’s inbuilt features speed up application development. The framework consumes less memory and allows users to create robust and high-performance applications.

  • Expandable framework: in Symfony, everything is present as a bundle. Each bundle can add unique functionality to the framework, thus adding to its expansion.

  • Easy testing: reusing of bundles, an absence of strict dependencies and possibility to create design patterns contribute to better maintainability and testing in Symfony.
