Installation

The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Usage

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

return [
    'bootstrap' => ['gii'],
    'modules' => [
        'gii' => [
            'class' => 'yii\gii\Module',
        ],
        // ...
    ],
    // ...
];

You can then access Gii through the following URL:

http://localhost/path/to/index.php?r=gii

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

http://localhost/path/to/index.php/gii

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
