Yii 1.1: yiiwheels

Extension Library for Yiistrap

Yiiwheels is the extension library for Yiistrap.

Now Bootstrap 3 Ready!

It differs from its ancestor YiiBooster, that it requires Yiistrap to work. Chris and I thought that this way would be easier to maintain, scale: leave bootstrap specific development to one library, where the other will focus on widgets creation.

Yiiwheels also encapsulates each widget on its own space, so its assets are published only if required. This way, you wont suffer delays because of publishing.



If you don't wish to have extra requirements, at 2amigOS! we have created one with a totally different approach (using namespaces and Yii2 look alike): 2amigOS! Custom YiiWheels



  • Updated to version v.2.0.+ (Bootstrap 3+ ready) 08/09/2014
  • Update to version v.1.0.3 (more than 15 new widgets) 11/08/2013
  • Created new stable version v.1.0.1 19/07/2013
  • Fixed minor bugs 18/07/2013
  • Published 17/07/2013

web development has never been so fun

There is no issue, YiiStrap has a branch that works with Bootstrap 3.*, and thats what is requiring.

The new version I am working on, won't have any YiiStrap dependency.

No, what we did is to pursue a different strategy for Yii2. We have created a huge amount of extensions (https://packagist.org/packages/2amigos/)[https://packagist.org/packages/2amigos/], that we were just waiting for the right moment (I think now is the time) for the extensions to mature. We are in the process to update our site and there would be a section where all our extensions will be extensively documented.

We just need some free time :)

You may find this thread helpful. It's about getting the customControlGroup and customActiveControlGroup to work along with DatePicker. Good luck!

newbie use yiiwheels

I use yiiwheels version 1.0.4 but when i use WhDatePickerHelper like this code :

<?php $tanggal = $this->widget('yiiwheels.widgets.formhelpers.WhDatePickerHelper', array(
                    'model' => $model,
                    'attribute' => 'CUR_DATE',
                    'inputOptions' => array('class' => 'input-medium'),
                    'name' => 'datepicker',
               ), true); 
            <?php echo $form->customControlGroup($tanggal, $model, 'CUR_DATE', array('span'=>6)); ?>

And show this error : TbActiveForm and its behaviors do not have a method or closure named "customControlGroup".Please help me?

Great ! and a question

This is awesome guys ! Great integration into yii's awesome system.

Yet, while i can use the provided widgets, most of them don't display as good as in the samples.

For instance, the language bar doesn't display the flags. The datepickers also have weird style.

Do you guys have the same experience ?

bug in WhEditable & WhEditableField

Hey there,

just found a bug in the WhEditable.php && WhEditableField.php class It's a reflection error when you change the app language to something other than english. Changing all Occasions of Editable to WhEditable will fix the error.

I agree with @Lloyd

I'd really rather to use YiiWheels but I'm feeling a bit missed about it and I don't dare to use it yet. Maybe a short tutorial will help a lot to me and many other devs who want to draw away YiiBooster.

Short tutorial on how to migrate from YiiBooster to YiiStrap + YiiWheels

I realize that Antonio is extremely busy these days, but maybe he can find the time to write a short tutorial on how to migrate from YiiBooster to YiiStrap + YiiWheels.

This would be a great help for me, and many other people.

Yiinitializr has been also updated... Yiistrap latest version is on 2amigos/yiistrap 1.0.1 and 2amigos/yiiwheels 1.0.2 is working perfectly with it... (demo site runs with them)
