The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist raoul2000/yii2-bootswatch4-asset "*"

or add

"raoul2000/yii2-bootswatch4-asset": "*"

to the require section of your composer.json file.


Note that this asset bundle does NOT include Bootstrap 4 files, but only the Bootswatch CSS files dedicated to overload Bootstrap default theme. To use the Bootstrap 4 files with your Yii2 application, check the yii2-bootstrap4 extension.

To use a bootswatch theme in your Yii2 application add the BootswatchAsset bundle to your main AppAsset bundle:

// ./assets/AppAsset.php

class AppAsset extends AssetBundle
    public $basePath = '@webroot';
    public $baseUrl = '@web';
    public $css = [
    public $js = [
    public $depends = [

Then at some point you must select the theme name you want to use. In the example below, the theme materia is set in the main layout file.

// ./views/layouts/main.php

raoul2000\bootswatch4\BootswatchAsset::$theme = 'materia';
