Symfony installer

I recently stumbled over a "new" tool in the Symfony environment called the Symfony installer. It's a simple little tool which help you to start a new project based on the Symfony full-stack framework.

The installation is extremely easy. Just download the installer via curl into your bin folder and make it executable:

$ sudo curl -LsS -o /usr/local/bin/symfony
$ sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/symfony

From there one you can run the following command from every directory:

$ symfony new my_project

And to keep him up-to-date (similar to composer):

$ symfony self-update
