I am happy to write my first post after long time about Symfony and Prestashop. When I heard that Prestashop introduced Symfony into their application I was really happy to hear that because it definitely boost Prestashop. I know this because I have many years experience with Symfony as well as Prestashop, even these days on daily basis I work with Prestashop and Magento.
Here I don’t want to compare Prestashop with Magneto (I will do in another post) but I can tell you from my experience that Prestashop is lacking from good robust infrastructure such as Symfony.
Why Prestashop is good with Symfony? I will answer in coming post but before this just to let you know that for now, Prestashop used Symfony in some parts of application not 100%, only in back-office although there is a plan to slowly use in front-office too.
I know some developers will disagree with this Prestashop’s move but trust me it worth it. These developers who are not familiar with Symfony they must learn a bit, so my advice to these developer is, wait, just learn what’s Symfony.
Since this is my first post after long time, I will keep it short. I will explain the benefit of Symfony in Prestashop later. Feel free to comment, always happy to hear from you.
