yii2-gon This component publishes json serializable data as 'key -> value' from PHP code into global JS variable `window.gon`.

  1. Why?
  2. Install
  3. Configure
  4. Usage


The need for such an extensions came while working on web apps with mixed approach: rich JavaScript GUI on web page, but each page is reloaded and most of bussiness logic is still on the backend side.

The simplest solution for a quick prototyping is pushing a data from PHP controller to global JS variable. That makes you free from a lot of REST API getters (you can make a lot without an API at all).


Via Composer

$ composer require ijackua/gon


Add component to application config ~~~ 'components' => array(

'gon' => 'ijackua\gon\GonComponent'

), ~~~ And to app bootstrap section ~~~ $config = array(

'bootstrap' => array('gon'),

Full component configuration example

'components' => array(

   'gon' => array(
        'class' => 'ijackua\gon\GonComponent',
        'jsVariableName' => 'gon',
        'globalData' => ['g1' => 1, 'g2' => '2'],
        'showEmptyVar' => true,

), ~~~


Anywhere in your app push key -> value

\Yii::$app->gon->push('someObj', ['a'=>'b']);
\Yii::$app->gon->push('str', 'hello');

On JS side you will get ~~~ > window.gon >> Object

  someObj: Object
       a: "b"
  str: "hello"
