That's ought to be one of the smallest Yii extensions around... .


  • Its very common to have some construct in view files along the lines of:
if this is front-page
    print some stuff
end if
  • I wasn't able to find some ready made thing that can tell me just that in Yii so I created this extension.
  • Its a simple behavior component that is attached to the 'web application'.
  • Once attached, it can be used as demonstrated below:
if (Yii::app()->isFrontPage()) {
  // render special widgets, print some stuff, etc...


The requirements are really minimal :) . Just make sure to follow the installation instructions and you're clear for takeoff.


  • Extract the contents of this package. Put the resulted php class file under /protected/components
  • Inside main.php config file:
// ...
'behaviors' => array(
    'isFrontPageTeller' => array(
        'class' => 'application.components.PcIsFrontpage',
// ...
  • That's it! I told you it would be simple.

One last word

I have some doubts that this isn't achievable by other means. Also, maybe you have some reservations on the implementation (the behavior method implementation). In case you have this important feedback please do not spare it from me :) ... (TIA)
