Seperating View from model and controller
Posted 14 May 2012 - 05:59 PM
Fist post here, and I am relatively new to development with the Yii framework. I am working in a small group environment and essentially responsible for everything besides the view. I have read through the a lot of the documentation and forum posts, but I can't seem to figure out how I would allow the designers to provide an html/css view without adding in php callbacks to the model.
Any help would be great,

Yeah, I suspected that the template systems offered weren't going to really get to the heart of what you want.
Our workflow at my company is to have technical people creating/maintaining the views based on designs/feedback from non-technical people. (although it's usually easy enough for non-technical people to make basic copy/style changes).

We have two full programmers on staff and jack of all trades (project manager + html + css) person. We subcontract work to designers. We typically get layered Photoshop files from the designers and a full programmer will create the layout and view files from this.
During the maintenance phase our jack of all trades will do simple updates to the view/layout files. More complicated changes are passed to full programmers.
