README

NOTE! THIS EXTENSION IS OUTDATED AND WILL NOT BE MAINTAINED, FUNCTIONALITY IS AVAILABLE IN YII2-CORE SINCE 2.0.0-RC

Running Yii2 Framework Gii Code Generators from command line

Installation

The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist dmstr/yii2-gii-command "*"

Setup

Make sure the Gii module is available in your console configuration.

$config['bootstrap'][] = 'gii';
$config['modules']['gii'] = 'yii\gii\Module';

The extension will register a giic command alias in the application bootstrap process, if Gii is available.

Usage

Show available generators:

./yii help giic

Note: giic is NOT generating and overwriting code files unless you use the option --generate=1

Create a controller

./yii giic/controller --template=default --controller=my-first-giic-controller

Create a model

./yii giic/model --template=default --tableName=foo --modelClass=Foo

Run a giiant batch

./yii giiant-batch \
  --tables=actor,address,category,city,country,customer,film,film_actor,film_category,film_text,inventory,language,payment,rental,staff,store \
  --modelNamespace=app\\models \
  --crudControllerNamespace=app\\controllers\\crud --crudViewPath=@app/views/crud

The above command will create models and CRUDs with relations for all given table names using the giiant generators.

Known Limitations

Compatibility with Help command

./yii help giic/model

Will not show all available options, a workaround is to look at the generator attributes or run the command without any parameters and review the Attribute Errors.

$ ./yii giic/model
Loading generator 'model'...

Attribute Errors
----------------
template: A code template must be selected.
tableName: Table Name cannot be blank.
modelClass: Model Class cannot be blank if table name does not end with asterisk.
