Yii and Yii2 Framework Technical Specifications
It’s not just the end, but getting there that makes the difference. A good development experience could impact performance, development costs and stability.
1. Bootstrap comes loaded
Twitter Bootstrap CSS Frontend Framework comes built in and loaded.
2. Form Validation
Yii handles a model level form validation both of the Frontend site (through Jquery) and on the Backend through the model validation.
Yii automatically handles routing through the controller while other framework requires the routers to be defined.
Huge point. Yii2 and Yii come packaged with the Gii CRUD generator, cutting development time for the MVC structure.
Hands down Yii2 has the better documentation that is clear and concise.
