TutsPlus.com: How to Use the Symfony Filesystem Component
The TutsPlus.com site has posted another tutorial spotlighting a component of the Symfony framework. In this latest tutorial they cover the Symfony Filesystem component, a module that provides useful wrapper functionality for common file system-related needs.
In this article, we're going to explore the Symfony Filesystem component, which provides useful methods to interact with a file system. After installation and configuration, we'll create a few real-world examples of how to use it.
The tutorial starts with a brief introduction of the component including a listing of functionality it provides. It then moves on to the installation (via Composer) and use in some sample code. From there they show how to use it to:
- create a new directory
- create a new file and add contents
- copy a directory
- remove a directory
Each of these includes both a code example and a brief summary of what's happening.
