The perfect MakeFile for Symfony (at least for me! 😁)

Published on 2018-11-30 • Modified on 2020-04-21

I have always used shell (.sh) scripts to streamline all my dev tasks on Symfony projects. But I discovered (here and here) that we could use a Makefile for this. I must say It works very well because:

  • It allows documenting all your dev tasks in a single file.
  • You've got autocompletion of the tasks name as Make is a standard Unix tool.
  • The task stops as soon as an error is returned by one of the executed commands.

The file below is the one used by the Strangebuzz.com project, and you can test it live to see what is the default output, which is, in fact, the "help" command that lists all that can be done. Don't forget to change the PROJECT parameter at the top of the file 😉. The nice ANSI output is done thanks to the sensiolabs/ansi-to-html library.

[Edit 2020-04-21] Added entries for Yarn/Webpack.
[Edit 2020-03-07] Nice display the ANSI output as it is in the terminal.
[Edit 2019-12-19] Entries to change the PHP version with brew.
[BONUS] The PHP code to get the output of the system call thanks to the Symfony Process component and the ansi-to-html library.
