Yii2 Fast Simple Advanced App ¶
Yii2-app is Fast and Ready-to-production advanced project template.

- Log DB Target with backend (
/log/index) - simply view log messages
- .htaccess - config for pretty urls (rewrite index.php), may be later add nginx config
- UrlManagerFrontend for backend app (all url rules in file

- postcss config (
