Simple work time clocking service built on Yii 2 framework.



  1. Install TimeClock using Composer:

    composer create-project --prefer-dist bizley/timeclock timeclock

  2. Prepare virtual host pointing to /public directory.

  3. Prepare configuration for DB of your choice. Place it in /src/config/db.php.

  4. Modify the /src/config/web.php file to change:

    • timeZone (default UTC),
    • language (default en-US; pl translations are provided in /src/messages/pl folder),
    • components > mailer configuration to actually send emails (needed for password reset),
    • params > company (default Company Name; displayed in footer and other layout places),
    • params > email (default; used as the email sender address for emails),
    • params > allowedDomains (default ['']; array with email domains allowed for registration).
  5. Change /public/index.php file to set YII_DEBUG mode to false and YII_ENV environment to prod.

  6. Apply migrations by running in console php yii migrate.

  7. Start webserver and register first account.

  8. If you want to make an account to be admin run in console php yii admin/set ID where ID is DB identifier of account to be set (usually first one is 1).

Ground rules

  • Registering account requires its email address to be in one of the provided domains. If you want to change this behavior you must prepare your own code. Current implementation is at /src/models/RegisterForm.php and /src/views/site/register.php.
  • Session can be started at any time but it must be ended not overlapping any other ended session.
  • There can be many sessions in one day.
  • Session can not be longer than midnight.
  • Not ended sessions not count for work hours.
  • Off-time must not overlap any other off-time period.
  • Holidays are automatically fetched from which is Polish holiday list. If you want to use something different you must prepare your own code for this. Current implementation is at /src/models/Holiday.php.
