In Detail

Yii Framework is a high-performance, fast, open source rapid development PHP framework that can be used to develop modern web applications. Yii Framework provides the toolkit for developing both personal projects and enterprise applications. Yii's component-based architecture lets developers build modules so that they aren't customizing the underlying code base, and so that anything they build is easy to use in different projects.

This book is a step-by-step guide to develop reusable real-world applications using Yii Framework. Yii Project Blueprints will guide you through several projects from project conception through to planning your project and finally implementing it. You will explore the key features of Yii Framework and learn how to use it efficiently and effectively to build solid core applications that you’ll be able to reuse in real-world projects. At the end of each project you’ll have a better understanding of Yii Framework and will have a working application that you can use in the future.

In this book, you’ll discover detailed guides on how to integrate with popular APIs like the Google Places API, SendGrid, and multiple social networks. You’ll also learn to integrate with applications and services like Composer to create fully reusable, database-agnostic modern web applications.


In this book, you will create practical, real-world projects. You will start with a small project, and work your way up to developing more complex applications, beginning with the conception and planning, and ending with fully implemented projects.

Who this book is for

This book is for intermediate to advanced level Yii developers who want to master Yii Framework and develop real-world applications. You should have experience of working with Yii, PHP 5, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
