General usage

Once the extension is installed, simply modify your application configuration as follows:

return [
    'bootstrap' => ['gii'],
    'modules' => [
        'gii' => [
            'class' => Yiisoft\Yii\Gii\Gii::class,
        // ...
    // ...

You can then access Gii through the following URL:


or if you have enabled pretty URLs, you may use the following URL:


Using the same configuration for your console application, you will also be able to access Gii via command line as follows,

# change path to your application's base path
cd path/to/AppBasePath

# show help information about Gii
yii help gii

# show help information about the model generator in Gii
yii help gii/model

# generate City model from city table
yii gii/model --tableName=city --modelClass=City
