Sometimes, you only want to use Symfony for its frontend capabilities (i.e routing, helpers, i18n, ...).
A use case is to have web services as a backend (instead of a classical ORM tool).
As an example, let us say that the application is called apptest.
Some notes before starting :
- tested on 1.0b2 tarball
- make this at the very start of your project
- no warranty of success ;)
- instructions related to generator are not tested because I do not use the generator
- I avoid to touch to file contents (I prefer deletes): it is easier to spot when there is an error (i.e no such file or directory) and also to upgrade to new versions of symfony
removing use of db :
all: use_database: off
in core_compile.yml, remove the loading of %SF_SYMFONY_LIB_DIR%/database/sfDatabaseManager.class.php
Symfony config related to propel
remove files config/databases.yml, config/propel.ini, config/schema.xml
in data/symfony/config/autoload.yml, remove the section symfony_orm
in data/symfony, you can remove the generator directory as it only contains a generator for propel.
Symfony lib related to propel
remove directories lib/symfony/addon/creole and lib/symfony/addon/propel
Remove Propel and Creole
remove directories lib/symfony/vendor/creole, lib/symfony/vendor/propel, lib/symfony/vendor/propel-generator
in the top project directory, type
grep -Ri propel * | grep -v "data/symfony/skeleton/" | grep -v "data/symfony/tasks/"
and check that nothing here is used by your code.
