Yii 1.1: yii-quick-swap

A module that quickly swaps between registered users to speed up developement


This module will place a menu anywhere in the application that will quickly swap which user is logged in to see how different users see the site.


Yii 1.1 or above


Unzip the module under protected/modules/yiiQuickSwap and add the following to your main config

return array(
  'modules' => array(
  'components' => array(
    'yiiQuickSwap' => array(
      'class' => 'yiiQuickSwap.components.yiiQuickSwap',
      'users' => array('user1', 'user2'), // a list of users that you want to swap between
      'redirect' => 'application.views.site.index', // where to redirect to after the swap

Use only on developement builds as this module allows anyone to log in as the users specified in the config file without the need for a password.

Using the module

Include the following code in the view file where ever you would like the menu to appear.

<?php echo $this->renderPartial('yiiQuickSwap.views.menu'); ?>

or you can point your browser to http://your.site.address/index.php?r=yiiQuickSwap
