The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require --dev --prefer-dist yiisoft/yii2-gii

or add

"yiisoft/yii2-gii": "~2.1.0"

to the require-dev section of your composer.json file.


Once the extension is installed, simply modify your application configuration as follows:

return [
    'bootstrap' => ['gii'],
    'modules' => [
        'gii' => [
            'class' => 'yii\gii\Module',
        // ...
    // ...

You can then access Gii through the following URL:


or if you have enabled pretty URLs, you may use the following URL:


Using the same configuration for your console application, you will also be able to access Gii via command line as follows,

# change path to your application's base path
cd path/to/AppBasePath

# show help information about Gii
yii help gii

# show help information about the model generator in Gii
yii help gii/model

# generate City model from city table
yii gii/model --tableName=city --modelClass=City
You can’t perform that action at this time.
