Doctrine ORM Service Provider

Provides Doctrine ORM Entity Managers as services to Pimple applications. Adapters are provided for both Silex and Cilex.

If you are not familiar with Doctrine ORM, it is a high quality Object Relational Mapper (ORM) for PHP. It sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). While the jury is still out on whether using an ORM is a good thing or a bad thing, it is extremely popular in some circles.

It should be no secret that we are a fan of Silex, so when we wanted to leverage Doctrine ORM in our Silex projects we came up mostly empty.

So we wrote a Silex service provider ourselves.

Based on the core Doctrine Service Provider, Doctrine ORM Service provider exposes Entity Managers in a way that is easy to configure and use. Symfony 2 users will appreciate the ability to use Doctrine ORM entities in Silex as easily as they can in their Symfony 2 applications.

Full documentation is available in the README.
