Use shortcut functions to reduce typing

Created 5 years ago by qiangTutorials8 comments – viewed 38,826 times – ( +54 ) – version 1.1
Because Yii intends to be integrated nicely with third-party libraries, it does not define any global functions. Everything in Yii needs to be addressed with full class name or object scopes. For example, to access the current user, we need to use Yii::app()->user; to access application parameters, we need Yii::app()->params['name']; and so on. While editors like textmate can help alleviate the problem of these lengthy typings, it is worthwhile to define global shortcut functions to some commonly used method calls. They will make the application code look cleaner.

How to generate Yii-like Documentation

Created 3 years ago by AsgarothHow-tos9 comments – viewed 23,853 times – ( +45 ) – version 1.1
Something a good application cant miss is documentation, and what would be better than some nice formatted HTML documentation that can be auto-generated from your code, we know several tools that already do this like phpDocumentor, but today we are introducing Yii Docs Generator which is a modification of the code that Yii itself uses to generate its documentation, thank phpnode for this wonderful work.
