DHTMLX-Gii Code Generator for Yii Framework 2

May 5th, 2015

Yii is an open source and fast web application PHP framework. Yii includes a Web-based code generation tool called Gii which is used for quick generation of models, forms, modules, CRUD, etc. To extend the functionality of Gii, you can customize the existing code generators or write completely new generators based on your needs. We have chosen the second option.

And so, we’d like to introduce DHTMLX Many Tables Generator, a code generator for Yii Framework 2 that creates many editable tables from the database of your website. We use dhtmlxGrid library for created grids. As a result, you’ll get a ready CRUD admin panel.
