I’ve been tinkering with symfony php framework for a while now. I wanted to know what methods and properties were attached to the special Table objects I had all over the place. I thought it would be easy enough to look up that documentation on the symfony documentation site, but that didn’t work.
So I did some googling and I found a public API of every single class within the symfony directory. And while it was helpful, I didn’t know if was new or not. I was looking for a symfony 1.4 marker, but didn’t see one. I even asked on Twitter.
It occured to me eventually though, that Doctrine is a completely different project. So the documentation would be there. Looking up the documentation for Doctrine_Table was incredibly easy when on the right site, of course. I commented on Twitter about this, but why doesn’t the symfony documentation make a note that some API docs are elsewhere. It would be kind of helpful.
Anyway, if you’re looking for the latest and greatest documentation for the version of Doctrine that symfony 1.4 is using, then look no further, you found it.
