To rebuild Symfony Encore assets, you can follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have Encore installed as a dependency by running composer require encore. If you haven't installed Encore yet, you can follow the official Symfony documentation to set it up.
  2. Open your webpack.config.js file, which should be located in your project's root directory, or in a config/ or assets/ directory.
  3. Inside the webpack.config.js file, look for the .addEntry() method calls. These calls define the entry points for your assets. For example, if you have a JavaScript file located at assets/js/app.js, you may have a call like this: .addEntry('app', './assets/js/app.js')
  4. Once you've located the entry points, open your terminal and navigate to your project's root directory.
  5. Run the following command to build the assets: yarn encore dev If you're using npm instead, run: npm run dev
  6. Symfony Encore will process your assets and put the compiled files in the public/build/ directory by default. You can specify a different output directory by modifying the outputPath option inside webpack.config.js.


That's it! Symfony Encore will rebuild your assets based on the changes you've made, and you can test them in your development environment.
