Symfony2: how to override core template?

I am trying to override SymfonyGeneratorBundle templates by creating


That file should replace:


But it still uses original file even after
How to do that w/o creating new bundle like Can't override the standard skeleton views in Symfony2 GeneratorBundle?


Register your bundle right after SensioGeneratorBundle in app/AppKernel.php e.g.:

// app/AppKernel.php

if (in_array($this->getEnvironment(), array('dev', 'test'))) {
    $bundles[] = new Sensio\Bundle\GeneratorBundle\SensioGeneratorBundle();
    $bundles[] = new Namespace\YourBundle();

// Or outside if, should you want your bundle to be available in production environment
$bundles[] = new Namespace\YourBundle();

Then in YourBundle.php override registerCommands method,

// Bundle\YourBundle.php

// other declarations
use Symfony\Component\Console\Application;
use Sensio\Bundle\GeneratorBundle\Generator\DoctrineCrudGenerator;
use Symfony\Component\Filesystem\Filesystem;

public function registerCommands(Application $application){
    $crudCommand = $application->get('generate:doctrine:crud');
    $generator = new DoctrineCrudGenerator(new FileSystem, __DIR__.'/Resources/skeleton/crud');


You have to copy skeleton folder to YourBundle\Resource and modify templates.
