You'll need at least PHP 8.1.

  1. Clone this repository.
  2. Run composer install in your project root directory.
  3. Run ./yii serve (on Windows yii serve). The application will be started on http://localhost:8080/.
  4. Go to the index page. Cycle ORM will create tables, indexes and relations automatically in the configured DB for you. If you want to disable this behavior then comment out the line with the Generator\SyncTables::class in the config/packges/yiisoft/yii-cycle/params.php. In this case you should create migrations to sync changes that you have made to entities with the DB.
  5. Run ./yii fixture/add 20 to create some random data.


Console works out of the box and could be executed with ./yii.

Some commands:

user/create <login> <password>
fixture/add [count]

In order to register your own commands, add them to console/params.php, consolecommands section.

Web application

In order to run the web application, you can either use the built-in web server by running ./yii serve or you could use a real web server by pointing it to /public/index.php.

More routes could be added by editing src/Factory/AppRouterFactory.


The template comes with a ready to use Codeception configuration. In order to execute tests run the following command:

composer run serve > ./runtime/yii.log 2>&1 &
vendor/bin/codecept run

Static analysis

The code is statically analyzed with Psalm. To run static analysis:
