Update: April 23rd
This post is incomplete, since DoctrineFixturesBundle was moved to it's own repository. For up to date instructions, refer to the Symfony Cookbook entry on how to setup and configure doctrine data fixtures
Doctrine data fixtures loading (aka
was recently removed from the Symfony Standard edition.
The Doctrine data fixtures extension is not stable yet, but it's still very much usable. Luckily, enabling the extension back is very easy, we'll show you two ways of doing it.
a) Updating your vendors.sh in Symfony Standard Edition
If you're using the Symfony Standard Edition, add this line to your
bin/vendors.sh, right after your doctrine git_install command:
# bin/vendors.sh # Doctrine Data Fixtures Extension install_git doctrine-data-fixtures git://github.com/doctrine/data-fixtures.git
sh bin/vendors.sh from your root folder to reload your vendors.
b. Cloning the doctrine data fixtures extension (alternative)
You just need to download/clone the library into your vendor folder.
cd vendor git clone https://github.com/doctrine/data-fixtures.git doctrine-data-fixtures
Then, just enable the data fixtures namespace in you app/autoload.php file,
Doctrine\\Common namespace that's already there:
'Doctrine\\Common\\DataFixtures' => __DIR__.'/../vendor/doctrine-data-fixtures/lib',
That's it, you'll learn how easy it is to use data fixtures in your Symfony2 project on our next post.
