The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist diggindata/yii2-currencylist "*"

or add

"diggindata/yii2-currencylist": "*"

to the require section of your composer.json.

Then run composer install or composer update.


The extension looks at the configured Yii application language Yii::$app->language. So if the language is configured to e.g. de, it takes the corresponding translation list from the umpirsky package.

Once the extension is installed, simply use the list in your forms as follows:

use diggindata\currencylist\CurrencyList;    
<?= $form->field($model, 'currencyCode')->dropDownList(CurrencyList::getList()) ?>

Alternatively, you may add the extension as an application component.

Add the following to your config/web.php file:

'components' => [
    'currencyList' => [
        'class' => 'diggindata\currencylist\CurrencyList',

You can the use it like this:

<?= $form->field($model, 'currencyCode')->dropDownList(Yii::$app->currenyList->getList()) ?>
