Yii 1.1: notifyii

A module for notifications


Be shure to have the same 'db' configuratiion in these files:

To install notifyii, navigate to the forlder "protected/modules" of your project. If your project does not have any "modules" folder, just create id. Then, run the command:

$ git clone git@github.com:sensorario/notifyii

Now you just need to add module to confi file:


And try to load these routes:


The first one show you a sample page that create a sample notification. The second one show you a crud to alter notifications.

If you want you can add these items to views/layouts/main.php file:

array('label'=>'Notifyii', 'url'=>array('/notifyii')),
array('label'=>'ModelNotifyii', 'url'=>array('/notifyii/modelNotifyii')),
array('label'=>'NotifyiiReads', 'url'=>array('/notifyii/notifyiiReads')),

Run migrations

/var/www/YOUR_APP_NAME/protected$ ./yiic migrate --migrationPath=webroot.modules.notifyii.migrations

Notify the end of the world

$notifyii = new Notifyii();
$notifyii->title('Mayans news!');
$notifyii->message('The end of the world');
$notifyii->expire(new DateTime("21-12-2012"));
$notifyii->from("-1 week");
$notifyii->to("+1 day");

Get all notifications



Suppose to load all notifications in your controller:

public function actionIndex()
    $this->render('index', array(
        'notifiche' => ModelNotifyii::getAllNotifications()

In the view, you can load all notifications

<?php foreach ($notifiche as $notifica) : ?>
    <?php if ($notifica->isNotReaded()) : ?>
        <div class="box">
            <h3><?php echo $notifica->title; ?></h3>
            <a href="<?php echo $notifica->link; ?>">
                <?php echo $notifica->expire; ?></a> - 
            <a href="<?php echo $notifica->link; ?>">
                <?php echo $notifica->content; ?></a> <br />
            <a href="<?php echo $this->createUrl('/notifyii/default/read',
                array('id' => $notifica->id)); ?>">
                    segna questa notifica come letta</a>
    <?php endif; ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>

Due to configuration:

Console and website configurations are different:

protected/config/main.php protected/config/console.php

If you have deleted database and receive that message, maybe means that you have console.php still configured with sqlite.

I used this for a week. the database and module work nice. when i deleted the database, i do a migrate again in the command prompt to get a database/ table again. why the systems respond "no new migration found,your system is uptodate"

I do not write code when is not needed. But I think to introduce a "purge" function that aggregate notifications and/or delete readed (and no more useful) notifications.

At the moment notifyii has a crud. But I'll put some automatic stuff to improve performace for biggest sites.

Have you tested its limits? How well performs for a large website? How can be scaled?
