Nested Set with Yii2

Created 7 months ago by sangprabo, updated 7 months ago by sangprabo.

Yii2: How to create/develop a new extension using Composer locally without version control or Git

Created 3 years ago by Wade Shuler, updated 7 months ago by jwerner.

Using a version control system, like Git, is nice. However, when building an extension from scratch and loading it via Composer, it adds a lot of pain in the butt steps. You have to commit your changes, update composer to pull them over, then notice there is an error, fix, commit, update. repeat.. I don't want all my baby steps under Git. Sure, I could edit my commit history, but c'mon. Just let m...

Upload files in Yii2 with MongoDb and GridFs

Created 5 years ago by edoardo849, updated 5 years ago by skworden.

Uploading files in a webapp can be extremely tricky and sometimes the quickest way to do it is to store the file directly in the webserver or into a DNS (like Amazon S3) and then to save the link and the metadata inside a table in the DB. The thing is that you'll have to deal with file permissions, server storage, file management and so on (which is perfectly fine, by the way).

Batch Gridview data ajax send splitted in chunks displaying bootstrap Progress bar

Created 11 months ago by toaster, updated 11 months ago by toaster.

The scenario in which this wiki can be useful is when you have to send an (huge) array of model ids and perform a time consuming computation with it like linking every model to other models. The idea is to split the array into smaller arrays and perform sequential ajax requests, showing the calculation progress using a [Bootstrap Progress bar](https://www.yiiframework.com/extension/yiisoft/yii2-bo...

How to hide /frontend/web in url addresses on apache

Created 5 years ago by raminious, updated 4 years ago by jim..

There is an issue on Yii2 to redirecting / urls to /frontend/web.
In other words we need a way to hidden /frontend/web from addresses.
