Use shortcut functions to reduce typing

Created 7 years ago by qiangTutorials8 comments – viewed 49,499 times – ( +58 ) – 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.

I like programing on my localhost, however it really bugged me to make changes to index.php & config files on my production server.
