There are some other common topics for Symfony development that can be affected by using Dokku but either they are not large enough for their own articles or I do not have sufficient expertise to do more that scratch the surface.
Lots of applications will need to handle file uploads. We do have some storage on our Dokku server we can use. So let’s use that storage to upload some files and learn how to use Dokku’s persistent storage with our Symfony application.
Now that we have a running application, we need to add a database (because… databases). For this tutorial, we will use the database to add authentication to our application using Symfony’s MakerBundle.
In this part we are going to add a little style to our app. We will use Symfony Encore to build our front end CSS and JS and then update our Dokku configuration to build our front end during deployment.
