Yii Web Programming Framework Application initializing library.
DEPRECATED. At 2amigos we are not longer supporting Yii 1. We highly recommend you to adopt Yii 2 as soon as possible.
Library that will help boost your application installation with ease and also to run Yii applications from its bootstrap files on a much cleaner way that the framework currently proposes. For example:
// if installed via composer require('./../../common/lib/vendor/autoload.php'); Yiinitializr\Helpers\Initializer::create('./../', 'frontend', array( __DIR__ .'/../../common/config/main.php', __DIR__ .'/../../common/config/env.php', __DIR__ .'/../../common/config/local.php' ))->run();
##How to use it
If you are going to use Yiinitializr to make use of
Yiinitializr\Helpers\Initializr you can easily install it via
composer, but if you are going to use it within your application structure in order to configure your application
according to your custom needs, then the recommended use is that you download
its source files and place them on a top level folder.
As with Yii, you need to go through a bit of configuration settings if you wish to handle your project structure setup
composer. Don't worry, is not going to be too hard, the following is an example configuration file:
\\ where am i? $dirname = dirname(__FILE__); \\ where is the application folder? $app = $dirname . '/../../..'; \\ where is the root? $root = $app . '/..'; return array( // yii configurations 'yii' => array( // where is the path of the yii framework? // On this example we have installed yii with composer // and as it is used after composer installation, we // can safely point to the vendor folder. 'path' => $app . '/lib/vendor/yiisoft/yii/framework' ), // yiinitializr specific settings 'yiinitializr' => array( // config folders 'config' => array( // we just need the console settings // On this example, and due that I used environments // i created a custom console.php app for // Yiinitializr\Composer\Callbak class (see below example) 'console' => $dirname . '/console.php' ), // application structure settings 'app' => array( // where is the root? 'root' => $root, // directories setup 'directories' => array( // where are the different configuration files settings? 'config' => array( // 'key' is the configuration name (see above init example) 'main' => $app . '/config', 'console' => $app . '/config', 'test' => $app . '/config' ), // where are my runtime folders? 'runtime' => array( // heads up! only the folder location as "/config" will be // appended $app ), 'assets' => array( // where to write the "assets folders"? $root . '/www' ) ), 'files' => array( // files to merge the main configuration file with // initializr will merge it automatically 'config' => array( 'main' => array('env', 'local'), 'console' => array('env', 'local'), ) ) ), ) );
Here is an example of a custom
console.php settings file when working with environments. As you saw on the previous
code, this file on the example was located on the same
require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/../Helpers/Initializer.php'; require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/../Helpers/ArrayX.php'; return Yiinitializr\Helpers\ArrayX::merge( Yiinitializr\Helpers\Initializer::config('console', array('common', 'env', 'local')), array( 'params' => array( // here is where the composer magic start. // Thanks! mr Tobias a.k.a Phundament man! 'composer.callbacks' => array( 'post-update' => array('yiic', 'migrate'), 'post-install' => array('yiic', 'migrate'), ) ), ) );
It works in conjunction with
composer to install the boilerplate but
The minimum requirements by Yiinitializr that you have installed
composer or have a
composer.phar on your application
root in order to run and ** PHP 5.3+**
web development has never been so fun
