This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2023-06-08 12:28:56 UTC


This component allows you to automate many processes that occur in working with models, thereby reducing code duplication, and hence the total time spent:

  • Writing validation rules for fields of the same type
  • Writing Getters to Declare Various Relationships with Other Models
  • Validating and Editing Linked Records
  • Setting up the edit form for the model and its associated records
  • Customizing the Model Record List
  • Translating field names
  • Adds the ability to extend models by a third-party module without adding new dependencies
  • Simplifies the process of unit testing models

The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require execut/yii2-crud-fields

or add

"execut/yii2-crud-fields": "dev-master"

to the require section of your composer.json file.


For example, the following few lines of code in a model:

namespace execut\books\models;
class Book extends \yii\db\ActiveRecord {
    use \execut\crudFields\BehaviorStub;
    public function behaviors() {
        return [
            \execut\crudFields\Behavior::KEY => [
                'class' => \execut\crudFields\Behavior::class,
                'fields' => [
                    'id' => [
                        'class' => \execut\crudFields\fields\Id::class,
                    'name' => [
                        'class' => \execut\crudFields\fields\StringField::class,
                        'attribute' => 'name',
                        'required' => true,

will make all required for CRUD:

$model = new Book();
echo 'Validation rules for the search and edit scenario';
echo 'Forming ActiveQuery based on filtering parameters and configuring ActiveDataProvider';
echo 'Formation of list columns settings';
echo 'Formation of settings for the creation/editing form';

Books CRUD list Books CRUD form

If we compare the implementation of such a model with a model without extension, we can see that the amount of code has changed in a positive direction:

Model on native Yii2 (85 lines) vs Model on CRUD fields (36 lines)

Or more strong example with books authors:

Model on native Yii2 (370 lines) vs Model on CRUD fields (116 lines)

Authors CRUD list Authors CRUD form
