Yii 1.1: awecrud

Powerful and simple Code Generator (Gii+Bootstrap). Multilingual CRUD/Gii extension.


  • MANY_MANY support (Master-Detail - No 3rd party extensions required).
  • Powerful Source Code Generator for Models and CRUD
  • All CSS code uses Bootstrap.
  • Auth, Cruge, YUM, and other RBAC extensions supported natively and they are fully customizable.
  • i18n messages are enabled by default (Currently Spanish, Portuguese, German, French & Lithuanian are supported, contributors are welcomed).
  • Icons for Operations menu added when generating CRUD


  • Yii 1.1.13
  • Yii-Booster/Bootstrap extension (for Bootstrap support)
  • PHP 5.2+



1) Extract the directory "AweCrud" (case-sensitive) from the downloaded archive into your application's protected/extensions directory.

2) Configure the gii generator path in your application, like:

'modules' => array(
    'gii' => array(
        'class' => 'system.gii.GiiModule',
        'generatorPaths' => array(
            'ext.AweCrud.generators', // AweCrud generators

3) Configure your application to automatically load the AweCrud component classes when needed, like:

'import' => array(
    'ext.AweCrud.components.*', // AweCrud components

4) Register the AweCrud messages directory, like the example below.

'components' => array(
    'messages' => array (
        'extensionPaths' => array(
            'AweCrud' => 'ext.AweCrud.messages', // AweCrud messages directory.



This extension is a kind of merge among several Gii extensions, looking for simplicity for Gii and a powerful code generator integrated with Cruge.

This extension borrows some ideas and code from other extensions like iCrud, GTC, Yii-Booster, GiiX, AweGen, Yii-Bootstrap and mix them all making a much simpler but powerful Gii extension plus Bootstrap look-and-feel.

Yii-Strap not supported


No, no plans to support yiistrap yet. However, feel free to make a pull request to add support to yiistrap (and allow to choose between yii-booster and yii-strap) in github repo.

Re: Still on manage

@kavitama 1. Please check your YiiBooster installation 2. Please delete the contents of your assets folder. 3. Please clear the folder runtime/cache (if exists)

Hope it helps.

Re: Question about the Manage action

The original CRUD icons has changed. NEverthless, I recommend to you to clear your /assets/* folder. If that doesn't work then check that you are really generating the CRUD from AweCrud module. Regards.

Question about the Manage action

I am not sure it is an issue or simply just doing something wrong bu when I generate a CRUD for a table and try to use the manage action I don't see the view, edit, delete icons I used to see using giix.

Am I doing something wrong?

Report in forum

@aleksdj Could you please report the bug in the forum? Including the details of the error and structure of the class inheritance?

Im having some problems. -Some of your classes dont import all the components clases inside ext.awecrud.components and fails. -LoadModel and perform ajax validation functions of generated controllers is not compatible with father class "AweController" meaning signature is different -I downloaded last 1.12 version of yii but the problems with messages using yii:t('Awecrud.app') still persists

Looking forward

@aleksdj @rosoft2001 It's not a matter o bad practices, it is a matter of taking advantage of future features and moving forward with "Yii-trend". If you don't want to use i18n feature, just skip it and use the extension without it ;)

I agree with @rosoft2001

You cannot base an extension in a development Yii version, I think is a matter of best practices... any solution for yii stable 1.1.12 version?

not working yet

Even if it's cool to use the latest features from the development yii version, I can't chase this, mostly because of my limited knowledge.

I will wait until this work out of the box with the yii released version.

Just post a comment when this would happen and I will try it again.

Update required

For those who are experiencing issues with "extensionPaths" parameter(Property "CPhpMessageSource"."extensionPaths" is not defined), please download the latest dev version of Yii from Yii GitHub official repository

RE: Property "AweModelCode.connectionId" is not defined.

@rosoft2001 Please check you're using Yii 1.1.12. That property has been inherited from CodeModel (a Gii core class).

Not related to awegen

@schmunk No, this extension just borrows some ideas from Awegen (and some other extensions)... but looking a more "bootstrap-purist" way.
