Radio Button List with enum values for column of type ENUM >+> incorporate into giix

Created 4 years ago by pckabeerHow-tos1 comment – viewed 17,830 times – ( +7 ) – version 1.1
Let's say our table 'mug' has a column named 'color' of the type ENUM('red','green','blue'). We want to replace the textfield for the attribute color in the create and update forms of a 'mug' with a Radio Button List, which has the enum values as options. This is a rewrite of c@cba in the wiki article of enumDropdownListThe main code was contributed by zaccaria in the forum (see this post).

Upload files in Yii2 with MongoDb and GridFs

Uploading files in a webapp can be extremely tricky and sometimes the quickest way to do it is to store the file directly in the webserver or into a DNS (like Amazon S3) and then to save the link and the metadata inside a table in the DB. The thing is that you'll have to deal with file permissions, server storage, file management and so on (which is perfectly fine, by the way).

Simple Web APIs for your Yii App

Created 3 years ago by shivHow-tos4 comments – viewed 17,578 times – ( +2 / -2 ) – version 1.1
Its very common now-a-days to have Mobile app for web apps. For Mobile apps we need web APIs to fetch data or even post/update on web. We found a very simple method to make such interface. Mobile App can call plain get or post request and receive data back in JSON format. JSON is relatively easy for mobile app to handle while plain standard GET/POST request for easy for Web server to handle. This mixed approach saves lot of time on server side. We not really need to handle actual REST requests and still be able to exchange data between web and mobiles or ajax java-scripts or even node.js.

TDD with PHPUnit_Story and Yii

Created 5 years ago by sidewinderTutorials1 comment – viewed 17,374 times – ( +7 ) – version 1.1
Unfortunately Sebastian Bergmann decided to remove PHPUnit_Story from future PHPUnit versions. Thanks to elvan for pointing me to the relevant comment. As an alternative Behat has been suggested but it seems too bloated for me TBH. There is also PHPSpec but it's non flexible enough for me and tightly bound with English language (What's the purpose of using DSL if customers can't speak English). Since both frameworks are quite young I think I'll just stick to PHPUnit and see what's going on on the BDD frameworks arena. Even PHPUnit_Story parts of this entry are going to be deprecated soon, rest is still valid! When doing TDD, please write tests with design and behaviour of application in mind instead of testing single functions.

Often, when writing widgets or editing Yii code, it is unclear whether or not the code is following the MVC pattern.
