How to register JS script into view in Yii2?

In Yii2, the way to register JS script into view is using \yii\web\View::registerJS(),

For example, if you want to initialize a jQuery plugin, you do:

// in view file

<div class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog">
  <div class="modal-dialog">
    <div class="modal-content">
      <div class="modal-body">
        <p>Hello World!</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

<?php
$this->registerJS('$(".modal").modal({backdrop:"static",keyboard:"false"})');
?>

Obviously, this is a very bad way because:

  1. Hard to read for human
  2. Hard to read for you editor (Means no syntax coloring for the JS code)
  3. You have to handle the single / double quote

This widget help you register JS script in Yii just as you write script block directly into HTML!

Getting Started

Installing

Install with Composer:

composer require richardfan1126/yii2-js-register "*"

or

php composer.phar require richardfan1126/yii2-js-register "*"

or add

"richardfan1126/yii2-js-register":"*"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

How to use

In your view file, wrap your JS script with <script> tag, and wrap all the things with this widget.

example:

// in view file

use richardfan\widget\JSRegister;

<div class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog">
  <div class="modal-dialog">
    <div class="modal-content">
      <div class="modal-body">
        <p>Hello World!</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

<?php JSRegister::begin(); ?>
<script>
    $(".modal").modal({
        backdrop:"static",
        keyboard:"false"
    });
</script>
<?php JSRegister::end(); ?>

IMPORTANT Remember not to add anything out of the <script> block.

Configurations

There are 2 configurations for this widget, which are the parameters passed into \yii\web\View::registerJS() method. example:

<?php JSRegister::begin([
    'key' => 'bootstrap-modal',
    'position' => \yii\web\View::POS_READY
]); ?>
<script>
    // JS script
</script>
<?php JSRegister::end(); ?>
  • key (optional)The key that identifies the JS code block. If null, it will use $js as the key. If two JS code blocks are registered with the same key, the latter will overwrite the former. Default to null
  • position (optional) The position at which the JS script tag should be inserted in a page. Default to \yii\web\View::POS_READY
