Powerful Admin Dashboard for Symfony 5

Project README




Supported PHP8 and Composer 2

Symfony Powerful Dashboard & Admin. Developed with Symfony 5, Vue 3, Bootstrap 5 framework.

No changes were made to the symfony structure, the current directory structure is used. A custom namespace for Admin has been created. This field is used for all administrator operations.

The interface is designed to be responsive using Twitter Bootstrap. The least possible dependency was tried to be used.

User Management

There is pd-user for user management. All settings are in config/packages/pd_user.yaml file.

  • Create User:
    bin/console user:create
  • Change User Password:
    bin/console user:changepassword
  • Change User Roles:
    bin/console user:role

Multilingual System

User logon for multi language is used. Each user can choose his / her own language. When you log in, you are automatically redirected.

New languages can be added from the kernel settings. You need to translate manually for the new language.


SensioFrameworkExtraBundle is used with Symfony security component. There are three default user roles.


ROLE_SUPER_ADMIN has full authority. ROLE_USER authorities can be restricted and panel access can be turned off in the security.yaml file.

System Settings

System settings are stored in the database. All settings can be used as parameters after container assembly. Since all settings are compiled with the container it does not create any additional load on the system. Settings can be configured using Symfony Forms and added to the Settings menu from the outside via the "Menu Event" system. Clear the cache after changes to system settings, otherwise the new settings will not be enabled.

For general settings, you can add it to src/Admin/Forms/System/GeneralForm

Add New Menu to Settings:


namespace App\Admin\Menu;

use Pd\MenuBundle\Builder\ItemInterface;
use Pd\MenuBundle\Builder\Menu;

class SettingsMenu extends Menu
    public function createMenu(array $options = []): ItemInterface
        // Create Root Item
        $menu = $this->createRoot('settings_menu')->setChildAttr([
            'class' => 'nav nav-pills',
            'data-parent' => 'admin_config_general',

        // Create Menu Items
            ->setLinkAttr(['class' => 'nav-item'])
            // Email
            ->setLinkAttr(['class' => 'nav-item'])

        return $menu;

Create New Widget

Widget system was created with Symfony "EventDispatcher Component". It has an adjustable structure for each user and it can be specially designed with "Twig Template" engine. For more information visit pd-widget

Create New Admin Widget:


namespace App\Admin\Widgets;

use Pd\WidgetBundle\Builder\Item;
use Pd\WidgetBundle\Event\WidgetEvent;
use Doctrine\ORM\EntityManagerInterface;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;

class AccountWidget
    private $entityManager;

    public function __construct(EntityManagerInterface $entityManager)
        $this->entityManager = $entityManager;

     * Build Widgets.
     * @param WidgetEvent $event
    public function builder(WidgetEvent $event)
        // Get Widget Container
        $widgets = $event->getWidgetContainer();

        // Add Widgets
            ->addWidget((new Item('user_statistics', 3600))
                ->setGroup('admin') // Widget Adds to "Admin" Group
                ->setConfigProcess(function (Request $request) {
                     * Controller for Widget Settings
                     * The return value is stored in the user specific database
                    if ($type = $request->get('type')) {
                        switch ($type) {
                            case '1week':
                                return ['type' => '1week'];
                            case '1month':
                                return ['type' => '1month'];
                            case '3month':
                                return ['type' => '3month'];

                    return false;
                ->setData(function ($config) {
                     * The return value can be used in the twig template.
                     * The function will not execute unless you call it in the template.
                     * You can use the database operations here.
                    // Set Default Config
                    if (!isset($config['type'])) {
                        $config['type'] = '1week';

                    // Create Statistics Data
                    if ($config['type'] === '1month') {
                        $data = ['chartDay' => '7'];
                        // Create Data
                    } else if ($config['type'] === '1month') {
                        $data = ['chartDay' => '30'];
                    } else {
                        $data = ['chartDay' => '90'];

                    return $data;

        // Create ROOT Menu
        $menu = $this->createRoot('main_menu', true); // Event enabled

        // Create Dashboard
        $menu->addChild('nav_dashboard', 1)
            ->setExtra('label_icon', 'dashboard');
