README

Before installing this you need to purchase this theme http://demo.interface.club/?theme=brain I have built the admin interface based on this. The theme is not open source so I cannot make it public. I am trying to rebuild it on a free theme that everybody can use but for now you need to purchase that theme. Sorry :(

Yii 2 Advanced Application Template

Yii 2 Advanced Application Template is a skeleton Yii 2 application best for developing complex Web applications with multiple tiers.

The template includes three tiers: front end, back end, and console, each of which is a separate Yii application.

REQUIREMENTS

The minimum requirement by this application template that your Web server supports PHP 5.4.0.

INSTALLATION

Install via Composer

If you do not have Composer, you may install it by following the instructions at getcomposer.org.

You can then install the application using the following command:

php composer.phar global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:1.0.0-beta4"
php composer.phar create-project --prefer-dist --stability=dev tez/yii2-app-advanced advanced

GETTING STARTED

After you install the application, you have to conduct the following steps to initialize the installed application. You only need to do these once for all.

  1. Run command init to initialize the application with a specific environment.
  2. Create a new database and adjust the components['db'] configuration in common/config/main-local.php accordingly.
  3. Apply migrations with console command sh migrate.sh. This will create tables needed for the application to work.
  4. Set document roots of your Web server:
  • for frontend /path/to/yii-application/frontend/web/ and using the URL http://frontend/
  • for backend /path/to/yii-application/backend/web/ and using the URL http://backend/
  1. Open common/config/params.php and add your mandrill details in the mandrill section.
  2. After purchasing the Brain theme, unpack it and copy the folder HTML/Bootstrap/Liquid into the vendor/tez/yii2-brain-theme/assets/Brain/Liquid
  3. TO DO - Create a cronjob to send email notifications out
  4. TO DO - Create info for the alias that needs to be put into the apache config file to have the storage folder to work

TO DO

  1. Find a way so you do not have to hardcode URLs
  2. Make the migrations work on windows too, right now sh migrate.sh is too specific

URLs

  • Login: yourhost/core/default/login Username: webmaster@2ezweb.com.au Password: admin
  • Logout: yourhost/core/default/logout
  • Reset Password: yourhost/core/default/request-password-reset
  • User management: yourhost/core/administrator/

Tests

Go to vendor/tez/yii2-cms-module/tests/codeception/backend/ run

codecept build

to initialize the tests. Then run

codecept run

to run the actual tests.

You can run

codecept run --coverage-html

to get the code coverage. You can find the coverage in vendor/tez/yii2-cms-module/tests/codeception/backend/_output/coverage/

TO DO

  1. Make the tests all run from inside the application/test folder, not from inside the vendor folder
  2. Make acceptance testing also work
  3. Put instructions on how to install codeception
