Using Grunt for deploying client scripts

Created 2 years ago by Chris83How-tos8 comments – viewed 12,972 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.

The Yii Framework is very powerful and it provides a lot of functionality right from the pre-built webapp. One of the nice things that is already established for you as a developer is the Login authentication. While the default configuration simply sets it up to run against an array of hard coded usernames and passwords, the Yii Blog Tutorial provides a how to in connecting that login authentication method to a database so you can run your logins against the registered users. Talk about sweet deal.

Adding a date range search for CGridView the easy way

Created 2 years ago by mikewalenTips5 comments – viewed 20,505 times – ( +12 ) – version 1.1
After a lot of research, everything I found on adding date range searching to a CGridView advanced search form seemed to involve adding two new public variables (e.g. $date_from, $date_to), 'safe' rules for the new variables, and a rather chunky if/elseif/else check in the search() method. This probably isn't a hassle for most, but because many of the tables in my database contain two or three and sometimes four date columns (e.g. date_created, date_modified, date_deleted etc.), it meant I was having to add up to eight public variables, the corresponding safe rules, and modifying the search() criteria for each date attribute. So, I set about creating a better way and I thought I'd share my work with the community.

Patching PHP code (used as a library) without changing the original code!

Created 2 years ago by le_topTips0 comments – viewed 4,439 times – ( +5 ) – version 1.1
The article Fixing extensions without modifying their code reminded me of another patching technique that I used. My conviction and a hard look on the web had led me to an article Redefine PHP class methods or class giving me a head start to do what I wanted: patching third party code without touching the original to allow easy upgrades.

Fixing extensions without modifying their code

If you're working a lot with extensions you often stumble upon problems, when you want to include them into your custom web application, like hardcoded or absolute path aliases or classes extended from core application components, which implement addiditonal features.
