This release has some minor updates, but unfortunately contains backwards-compatibility breaking changes. Thus I've had to bump up the version.

    'modules' => [
        'user' => [
            'class' => 'amnah\yii2\user\Module',

Development Notes

How do I check user permissions?

This package contains a custom permissions system. Every user has a role, and that role has permissions in the form of database columns. It should follow the format: can_{permission name}.

For example, the role table has a column named can_admin by default. To check if the user can perform admin actions:

if (!Yii::$app->user->can("admin")) {
    throw new HttpException(403, 'You are not allowed to perform this action.');
}
// --- or ----
$user = User::findOne(1);
if ($user->can("admin")) {
    // do something
};

Add more database columns for permissions as needed. If you need something more powerful, look into setting up RBAC.

Note: If you set up an authManager component for RBAC, then Yii::$app->user->can() will use that instead of this module's custom role table.

How do I add captcha to the forms?

Check out this great 3-step guide by dektrium. (Please note that the scenarios for the validation rules will depend on your project requirements.)

How do I add i18n?

// app/config/web.php
return [
    'components' => [
        'i18n' => [
            'translations' => [
                'user' => [
                    'class' => 'yii\i18n\PhpMessageSource',
                    'basePath' => '@app/messages', // example: @app/messages/fr/user.php
                ]
            ],
        ],
    ],
];

How do I extend this package?

You can extend the classes directly. Depending on which ones you need, set the proper config property:

// app/config/web.php
'components' => [
    'user' => [
        'class' => 'app\components\MyUser',
        'identityClass' => 'app\models\MyUser',
    ],
],
'modules' => [
    'user' => [
        'class' => 'app\modules\MyModule',
        'controllerMap' => [
            'default' => 'app\controllers\MyDefaultController',
        ],
        'modelClasses'  => [
            'User' => 'app\models\MyUser', // note: don't forget user::identityClass above
            'Profile' => 'app\models\MyProfile',
        ],
        'emailViewPath' => '@app/mail/user', // example: @app/mail/user/confirmEmail.php
    ],
],

For view files, you can use the theme component.

// app/config/web.php
'components' => [
    'view' => [
        'theme' => [
            'pathMap' => [
                '@vendor/amnah/yii2-user/views' => '@app/views/user', // example: @app/views/user/default/login.php
            ],
        ],
    ],
],

I need more control. Can I just extend the whole thing?

You can always fork the package and modify it as needed.

Or, if you want, you can integrate the package directly into your app by copying the files. This would make it more difficult to get updates, but it also guarantees that your app won't break after running composer update.

To do so, you can use the helper command CopyController.

  • Add the module to your config/console.php to gain access to the command (Note: this is CONSOLE config)
// app/config/console.php
'modules' => [
    'user' => [
        'class' => 'amnah\yii2\user\Module',
    ],
],
  • Use the php yii user/copy command. For a basic app, you can call the default command without any options
php yii user/copy --from=@vendor/amnah/yii2-user --to=@app/modules/user --namespace=app\\modules\\user
  • Update config to point to your new package
// app/config/web.php + app/config/console.php
'modules' => [
    'user' => [
        'class' => 'app\modules\user\Module',
    ],
],

Alternatively, you can do this manually. Just copy/paste the files wherever you'd like and change the namespaces in the files. Replace amnah\yii2\user with app\modules\user.
