Today I’ve realised that the name I gave to one of my Symfony 2 bundles should be something else. To rename a bundle, one must do four things (at least).
- Change the namespace from Vendor\OldBundle to Vendor\NewBundle in every PHP class (sounds like pain? It is…)
- Change the name of files and classes. Some files under src/Vendor/OldBundle (and the classes in them) contain the name of the bundle, like OldBundle/DependencyInjection/VendorOldBundleExtension.php and OldBundle/VendorOldBundle.php. You should rename them, or Symfony won’t find the classes defined in them! When done, rename the whole bundle directory either.
- Change the configuration files accordingly, including AppKernel.php. These config files are usually routing.yml, services.yml, and in some cases, config.yml.
- Change the references in other parts of your code. A grep -r OldBundle . will usually help…
