A bundle in Symfony (and Ibexa DXP) is a separate part of your application that implements a feature. You can create bundles yourself or make use of available open-source bundles. You can also reuse the bundles you create in other projects or share them with the community.

Many Ibexa DXP functionalities are provided through separate bundles included in the installation. You can see the bundles that are automatically installed with Ibexa DXP in the respective composer.json files. For example, for Ibexa Content, see the JSON file on GitHub.

Deprecated legacy Commerce bundles

As of Ibexa DXP v4.4 all ibexa/commerce packages are deprecated. They are gradually replaced by their revamped counterparts and removed completely from the product in version v5.0.

Working with bundles

All bundles containing built-in Ibexa DXP functionalities are installed automatically. Additionally, you can install community-developed bundles from Ibexa DXP Packages.

To learn how to create your own bundles, see Symfony documentation on bundles.

Overriding third-party bundles

When you use an external bundle, you can override its parts, such as templates, controllers, etc. To do so, make use of Symfony's bundle override mechanism. Note that when overriding files, the path inside your application has to correspond to the path inside the bundle.

Removing bundles

To remove a bundle (either one you created yourself, or an out-of-the-box one that you do not need), see the How to Remove a Bundle instruction in Symfony doc.
