Inheritanceyii\console\controllers\AssetController » yii\console\Controller » yii\base\Controller » yii\base\Component » yii\base\BaseObject
Implementsyii\base\Configurable, yii\base\ViewContextInterface
Available since version2.0
Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/console/controllers/AssetController.php

Allows you to combine and compress your JavaScript and CSS files.

Usage:

  1. Create a configuration file using the template action:

    yii asset/template /path/to/myapp/config.php

  2. Edit the created config file, adjusting it for your web application needs.
  3. Run the 'compress' action, using created config:

    yii asset /path/to/myapp/config.php /path/to/myapp/config/assets_compressed.php

  4. Adjust your web application config to use compressed assets.

Note: in the console environment some path aliases like @webroot and @web may not exist, so corresponding paths inside the configuration should be specified directly.

Note: by default this command relies on an external tools to perform actual files compression, check $jsCompressor and $cssCompressor for more details.

Property Details

$bundles public property

List of asset bundles to be compressed.

public array $bundles = []
$cssCompressor public property

CSS file compressor. If a string, it is treated as shell command template, which should contain placeholders {from} - source file name - and {to} - output file name. Otherwise, it is treated as PHP callback, which should perform the compression.

Default value relies on usage of "YUI Compressor"

See also https://github.com/yui/yuicompressor/.

public string|callable $cssCompressor 'java -jar yuicompressor.jar --type css {from} -o {to}'
$defaultAction public property

Controller default action ID.

public string $defaultAction 'compress'
$deleteSource public property (available since version 2.0.10)

Whether to delete asset source files after compression. This option affects only those bundles, which have yii\web\AssetBundle::$sourcePath is set.

public boolean $deleteSource false
$jsCompressor public property

JavaScript file compressor. If a string, it is treated as shell command template, which should contain placeholders {from} - source file name - and {to} - output file name. Otherwise, it is treated as PHP callback, which should perform the compression.

Default value relies on usage of "Closure Compiler"

See also https://developers.google.com/closure/compiler/.

public string|callable $jsCompressor 'java -jar compiler.jar --js {from} --js_output_file {to}'
$targets public property

List of asset bundles, which represents output compressed files. You can specify the name of the output compressed file using 'css' and 'js' keys: For example:

'app\config\AllAsset' => [
    'js' => 'js/all-{hash}.js',
    'css' => 'css/all-{hash}.css',
    'depends' => [ ... ],
]

File names can contain placeholder "{hash}", which will be filled by the hash of the resulting file.

You may specify several target bundles in order to compress different groups of assets. In this case you should use 'depends' key to specify, which bundles should be covered with particular target bundle. You may leave 'depends' to be empty for single bundle, which will compress all remaining bundles in this case. For example:

'allShared' => [
    'js' => 'js/all-shared-{hash}.js',
    'css' => 'css/all-shared-{hash}.css',
    'depends' => [
        // Include all assets shared between 'backend' and 'frontend'
        'yii\web\YiiAsset',
        'app\assets\SharedAsset',
    ],
],
'allBackEnd' => [
    'js' => 'js/all-{hash}.js',
    'css' => 'css/all-{hash}.css',
    'depends' => [
        // Include only 'backend' assets:
        'app\assets\AdminAsset'
    ],
],
'allFrontEnd' => [
    'js' => 'js/all-{hash}.js',
    'css' => 'css/all-{hash}.css',
    'depends' => [], // Include all remaining assets
],
public array $targets = []
