Symfony 3, ahem, Symfony 2.8, comes with a lot of sweet new stuff. Hey, we
should totally take a tour through all the best stuff.
I originally planned a chapter about Assetic, but decided against it: since there's not much to cover (just that it was removed for new projects, like we're talking about). If there's any move, I think it's that Symfony is making less recommendations about assets in general. There are too many other solutions, and they all work equally well with Symfony - e.g. Gulp, etc :)
Yes that's what I have done. Out of curiosity, in this series i saw a topic before that was called "Assets" I no longer see that.
Down the line, Is Symfony moving away from Assets and moving towards other tools? like Gulp or something else?
Yea, good question - one a lot of people have been asking. The bundle *is* still ok to use - it's not abandoned or anything like that :). We just decided to not include it by default. If you want it, just require it and then add back the new Symfony\Bundle\AsseticBundle\AsseticBundle() line:
composer require symfony/assetic-bundle
I noticed on fresh install of Symfony 3.0, the AsseticBundle is no more. new Symfony\Bundle\AsseticBundle\AsseticBundle(),
Do we need to install this manually now or this bundle is not going to be used any more?
