Kickstart development with Yii-App
## Introduction I recently created a project called [Yii-App](https://github.com/Crisu83/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](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/bootstrap) 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. ## Setup Setting up your project using Yii-App is a breeze, it shouldn't take you more than a couple of minutes. Follow the steps below and you'll be ready in no time. 1. Download the project from the [GitHub page](https://github.com/Crisu83/yii-app) or clone it using git. 2. Go to [Yii downloads](http://www.yiiframework.com/download/) and download the latest stable release of Yii and place in the **yii** folder. 3. Configure your application through main.php and params.php 4. Open your project in a browser and test that it works 5. Start developing your application! ## What's included Yii-App comes with a toolbelt of extensions: * [Yii-Bootstrap](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/bootstrap) Twitter Bootstrap widgets * [Yii-LESS](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/less) LESS compiler with support for both client- and server-side compilation * [IMG](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/img) Image management and versioning * [Yii-Auth](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/auth) User interface for access control * [Yii-SEO](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/seo) Search engine optimization * [YiiPasswords](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/yii-password-strategies/) Strong password using BCrypt * Yii-Multilingual Multilingual support
