Sylius Cloud as a new project and environment

Given that Sylius Cloud operates on, each new environment must be established either through the dashboard or via’s CLI tools. However, before setting up an environment, it’s necessary to initiate the project exclusively on the panel. To fully leverage the capabilities of Sylius Cloud when initiating a new project, select the “Create from scratch” option, as shown in the screenshot below:

Then, new environments can be specified through the platform command by choosing, for example, its type, name, parent environment, and other optional parameters. Once the environment is created, the application is ready for deployment. The steps can be repeated to create additional environments for development, testing, or other purposes.

With Sylius Cloud powered by, the time required for project setup is reduced to a minimum. The whole process is simplified, allowing developers to focus on the project as soon as possible without the need to manage the required resources and infrastructure without a deep understanding of all the required dependencies.

Configuring and Sylius is an equally straightforward process; let’s see how it’s done.

The management console is designed to be responsive and user-friendly. Users can filter lists by searching for specific projects or selecting a different organization from the top-left menu. Upon choosing a project, users can modify its settings. The same goes for the environments – the settings of each one can be modified according to the needs.  

This PaaS solution offers several exciting features and benefits that aim to streamline the process of managing and developing web applications in the cloud environment. These include, for instance,  Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD), cloning environment features, and automatic scaling. These aspects and much more are described in the Sylius blog, which is devoted solely to Sylius Cloud and cooperation with
