LUYA is a Yii 2 PHP Framework wrapper which provides out of the box functions like an administration interface, a beautiful looking content management system, payment modules, agency workflows and other tools to develop your website pretty fast!

Attention: As of Bootstrap 4, the grid is completely written in FLEX. Check the Browser Support to decide if you want to use Bootstrap 4 for your Project.


We have a made an absolut easy to understand STEP-BY-STEP Guide to install LUYA:


composer create-project luyadev/luya-kickstarter-bootstrap4



These libraries are included and available:

» jQuery (yii\web\JqueryAsset)
» Bootstrap v4 (CSS & JS)

Bootstrap is included as a composer requirement


We have created our own NPM Package that includes our gulp workflow.
Everything is prepared inside the resources/ folder.

See zephir/zephir-gulp-workflow for a full documentation of the workflow.



To speed up your local development you can uncomment the following lines in configs/local.php in order to use symlinking your assets instead of copy them every run.

'assetManager' => [
    'class' => 'luya\web\AssetManager',
    'linkAssets' => true,

Now all assets will be symlinked and not copied.

This will also enable CSS instant reload provided by browserSync (gulp).
