    • remove default "Success" suffix for template filenames

      I never use things such as "return sfView::ERROR" but instead I send flash messages to the user, and/or use only one specific "error template".

      Therefore it's really boring to read and type all those "Success" suffixes on template filenames.

      • Make split testing inherent

        Split testing is a powerful tool for improving websites & applications. Unfortunately Google Web Optimizer et al aren't very good at supporting dynamic pages.

        Symfony should include either as core or as a plugin, a way to easily segment users and then select a template to display to the user based on their segment.

        Additionally, some wrapper class to send data to analytics packages would complete the process of making split testing dead easy to implement.

        • Improve admin generator filter

          Current admin generator filter is not very powerfull and not usable in real world application.
          It consist into a condition on each field :
          name : like toto
          category = artice
          age = 2

          The filter could be a list of conditions :
          field : [drop down list with possible field]
          Condition type : [according to the type of filed : equal, different, containing, starting with, >, >=, <, <=, etc]
          Value : [according to the type of field : input text field, drop down list...]
          [add another condition] <== idealy, here you can choose [AND or OR !]

          So…

          • default reusable CRUD skeleton (introspection vs code generation)

            instead of generating new CRUD source files (template + actions + forms + filters) for every model, it would be nice to have a default skeleton and reuse that with introspection (like django does). in this way you will just override the templates/forms/actions that you wish to change (just in case), leaving the rest unchanged without producing new sources files for every module.

            • Add a visual editor possibility to create doctrine schema

              Actually, it seems we can not build our doctrine schema from a visual editor file.

              To me, its a very big lack for a profesionnal framework : its impossible to work on a YAML file to define 80 tables and more than 60 fields in some of them.

              This feature is a must have I think, and should be present with a plugin or in the core. Some plugins exists for Propel (dia, DBDesigner), but not for Doctrine (futur offical symfony ORM).

              DIA could be a good choice (open source, xml files).

              • use phpunit instead of lime

                phpunit is the standard for unit tests and should be used instead of the lime framework. It brings lots of features and is also class orientated instead of script orientated like lime.

                • i18n catalog file inheritance

                  Some texts are the same for all (like the "send", "cancel" buttons, "next", "previous" links, etc).

                  Why not make the xml catalog files inherit from other xml catalog files, so we could define the above kind of words just once, but still have different catalog files for different forms and etc.

                  • Continue developing sfFormExtraPlugin

                    Add more widgets and/or port already existed widgets to other js/orm (like sfWidgetFormPropelJQueryAutocompleter so it'll work with prototype and with doctrine).

                        • Allow per-application credentials

                          When working with multiple applications within the same vhost (with subdirectories), the user session is shared for every applications. Attributes can be namespaced, but not the authentication nor the credentials. It would be great to have an way to specifiy per-application credentials (and maybe authentication).

                                    • Accommodate for behavior driven development

                                      BDD is really cool, as Symfony already has a good testing framework, perhaps it could accommodate BDD too, with a place to check in user stories in BDD style, and generate the tests templates from it. or even just be able to reference the tests that ecapsulate the user story.

                                      If no one knows what I am talking about, google behavior driven development, you will like what you see.

                                        • Release sf1.3 with all the documentation up to date

                                          It really suck to use sf 1.2 with all that incomplete documentation.

                                          I trully believe releases just should happen when the documentation is also complete.
