Flat Theme from ShapeBootstrap as a frontend UI for Yii 2 Framework.

Flat Theme contains AssetBundles for Yii 2.0 Framework which registers the CSS & JS files for the SB Admin 2 UI.

It declares p2made/yii2-asset-collection as a dependancy.

¡¡¡ On Hold !!!

Updates in the dependencies to the original appear to have broken some elememts & it's a right mess for which I don't immediately have time.


The preferred way to install Flat Theme is through composer. Depending on your composer installation, run one of the following commands:

composer require p2made/yii2-flat-theme "^0.5"


php composer.phar require p2made/yii2-flat-theme "^0.5"

Alternatively add:

"p2made/yii2-flat-theme": "^0.5"

to the requires section of your composer.json file & p2y2bootstrapSocialAsset will be installed next time you run composer update.

The files are installed via Yii's recommended usage of the fxp/composer-asset-plugin.

Quick Start

Once the extension is installed, you can have a preview by reconfiguring the path mappings of the view component:

	'components' => [
		'view' => [
			'theme' => [
				'pathMap' => [
					'@app/views' => '@vendor/p2made/yii2-flat-theme/example-views/flat'

This asset bundle provides sample files for layout and view (see folder example-views/), they are not meant to be customized directly in the vendor/ folder. If you do that, your changes will be lost next time you run composer update.

Therefore it is recommended to copy the views into your application and adjust them to your needs.

To view the sample pages in site/pages/ you need to modify actions() in the SiteController:

public function actions()
	return [
		'page' => [
			'class' => 'yii\web\ViewAction',

And then...

P2Flat Theme uses P2Y2Things which requires some Yii 2 assets to be nullified to avoid conflicts through double loading. Modify common/config/main.php with...

	'components' => [
		'assetManager' => [
			'bundles' => [
				'yii\web\JqueryAsset' => [
					'sourcePath' => null, 'js' => [],
				'yii\bootstrap\BootstrapAsset' => [
					'sourcePath' => null, 'css' => [],
				'yii\bootstrap\BootstrapPluginAsset' => [
					'sourcePath' => null, 'js' => [],
				'yii\jui\JuiAsset' => [
					'sourcePath' => null, 'css' => [], 'js' => [],
				'\rmrevin\yii\fontawesome\AssetBundle' => [
					'sourcePath' => null, 'css' => [],


  • Copy files from vendor/p2made/yii2-flat-theme/example-views/flat (or other theme) to @app/views.
  • Remove the custom view configuration from your application by deleting the path mappings, if you have made them before.
  • Edit your views adhering to html markup http://shapebootstrap.net/item/flat-theme-free-responsive-multipurpose-site-template/ & the example views.

Known Issues

  • sample pages in site/pages/ return a 403 error when viewed in the Y11 2 Advanced backend.

I've not been able to resolve this. It may be an issue on my development machine.
