The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

$ composer require yiimaker/yii2-email-templates

or add

"yiimaker/yii2-email-templates": "~4.0"

to the require section of your composer.json.


  1. Create template with placeholders using your site dashboard or Gii generator

    ##### Key

    register-notification - this is unique key of this template for using in your code

    ##### Subject

    Notification from {site-name}

    In this example email subject has one placeholder {site-name}

    ##### Body

    Hello, {username}! Welcome to {site-name} :)

    Email body has two placeholders: {username} and {site-name}.

    > All keys should be wrapped by {}.

  2. Now you can get this template in your code

    `php $template = Yii::$app->get('templateManager')->getTemplate('register-notification'); `

    This method returns a template model object.

  3. Then you should parse this template

    `php $template->parseSubject([

    'site-name' => Yii::$app->name,



    'username' => Yii::$app->getIdentity()->username,
    'site-name' => Yii::$app->name,

    ]); `

    or use another method

    `php $template->parse([

    'subject' => [
        'site-name' => Yii::$app->name,
    'body' => [
        'username' => Yii::$app->getIdentity()->username,
        'site-name' => Yii::$app->name,

    ]); `

    this methods replace placeholders in template with real data.

  4. Now you can use data of this template in your logic

    `php Yii::$app->get('mailer')->compose()

     // ...



You can run tests with composer command

$ composer test

or using following command

$ codecept build && codecept run
