Installing Swift in symfony 1.1 — The missing manual

There’s one little gotcha with installing Swift in symfony 1.1. The directions are correct but do not mention how to get around the error that outputs:

Fatal error: Class ‘Swift_Connection_SMTP’ not found

The solution is quite simple and involves creating an autoload.yml file in your project’s config directory. Here it is:

    name: swift classes
    ext:  .php
    path: %SF_PLUGINS_DIR%/swift
    recursive: on

What I really like about Swift is how you can use your gmail account to send messages.
