Using Grunt for deploying client scripts

Created 2 years ago by Chris83How-tos8 comments – viewed 12,736 times – ( +11 ) – version 1.1
For a long time I have struggled to find a suitable tool for doing server tasks such as compiling LESS files, concatenating and minifying of JavaScript files and copying the minified JavaScript files. While most of these tasks can be done with Yii extensions I would still not recommend using them because it requires you to include these extensions in your project, and therefore also deploying them in your production environment.

Sometimes text inside a gridview column is just too long. That's why I figured out a way to make the column smaller while still providing the information.

Using Bootstrap with LESS

Created 2 years ago by Chris83How-tos1 comment – viewed 37,293 times – ( +14 ) – version 1.1
I discovered Twitter Bootstrap almost two years ago. After trying it out for a while I fell in love with it. It didn't take long before I realized that it would be great to write an extension that allowed developers to start using Bootstrap in their Yii projects. One night I sat down and started writing what later became my now popular bootstrap extension. Now that the extension is quite widely used in the community I felt that it was time to write about how to use Bootstrap to its full potential. If you use the Bootstrap CSS files you're really missing out on some great features. After reading this article you'll be able to take full advantage of Bootstrap using LESS.

I recently created a project called Yii-App on GitHub to kickstart my development of smaller Yii applications. The main goal of the project is to provide a ready-to-use application template that includes my bootstrap extension and many other useful extensions. After reading this article you will be able to use this project as a starting point for all of your Yii projects.

Turn Web HTML Into Newsletter

Created 2 years ago by yasenHow-tos1 comment – viewed 8,343 times – ( +8 ) – version 1.1
These newsletters have always been hard to create as regular web HTML is not properly read by web email interfaces and email clients. I thought that the simplest solution would be to use a web page that would serve as a web version of the newsletter and turn it somehow into newsletter HTML.

Handling Bootstrap active tabs in Yii via URL

Created 2 years ago by JamesBarnsleyHow-tos6 comments – viewed 18,779 times – ( +7 ) – version 1.1
As a lead developer at Mutable Labs I found that when using the Yii Bootstrap tabs component you will sometimes want to direct the user to a specific tab and not necessarily the first tab. Yii Bootstrap already provides the "active" variable so you can define whether the tab is the active tab or not in PHP. I generally find though that a PHP solution to this problem is rather cumbersome as every tab component will need the PHP code inserted or you will have to extend the tab component somehow to do it.
