Yii Framework Application

This package is one of the three Yii Framework application bases provided for rapidly creating projects.

This template is still experimental and provided to help you discover Yii 3. If you are looking to develop with the last stable Yii version, use yii2-app-basic instead

The template contains the basic features including user login/logout and a contact page. It includes all commonly used configurations that would allow you to focus on adding new features to your application.

Follow the installation of yii-project-template to get started with this template.


You should recreate configuration files as needed in your root config/ directory.

Make sure they are listed in the extra.config-plugin entry of your composer.json file in order for them to be discovered, and remember to run composer dump-autoload (or composer du) every time you change a configuration value.

Refer to hiqdev/composer-config-plugin for more information.


  • Yii won't create the database for you, this has to be done manually before you can access it.
  • Check and edit the other files in the config/ directory to customize your application as required.
