Version 0.1 Release notes:


This module aims to be a clean, modular and simple user-administration module which can be used for Yii 2 projects version 2.0.7 and up.

A first goal is to wrap the user management functionalities provided by the yii2-advanced template to allow easy porting to other templates, such as the yii2-basic-template. Essentially, this module can functionally achieve the same as provided by the advanced template, with little to no changes made to the interface provided and minor changes to made layout.

Other than providing the stock functionality, a lot has been made configurable:

  • Email-based login by default, over storage of a username/email combination;
  • Enable/Disable guest signup;
  • Graceful handling of (optional) account status codes;

A next goal deals with the implementation of some missing core user account functionality:

  • Account Confirmation
  • Token Based Authentication
  • RBAC Integration

Functionality will be added to this module, as it becomes required for incorporation in further projects. We accept pull-requests!

The following functionality is due expected due in further versions:

  • PhpCAS Integration (due version 0.2)
  • OAuth Integration (due version 0.3)
  • REST API (due version 0.4)
