Deploy Feature Rich Yii Framework to Develop Large Sized Web Applications
PHP is the most preferred software platform for website development. Its features and ease of use have already established itself as a popular choice for all the developers working in website design and development business. There are many frameworks which are already known to the public and being regularly used by developers. These include Joomla, Drupal, Moodle and many more. A new framework with a name Yii has been launched in the market which works in PHP5. It is also an open source framework which continues the culture of all other PHP frameworks. With the help of Yii framework, it is easy to create and maintain large sized web application projects. Developers are finding it reliable, dependable new framework that can be chosen to create a web application. What makes Yii a superior choice over the already existing and established open-source frameworks in the market? Here are the features of the Yii framework which makes it the preferred choice by experienced developers.
MVC architecture â€“ Yii is based on the Model-View-Controller type of architecture which makes it robust and strong. The structure is tightly bound so that a novice programmer can also write programs with least syntax and semantic errors creeping in. It tries to avoid all the chaos that developers are tending to create while writing scripts such as never using created objects, spelling mistakes etc. Forms creation and validationany web application requires lots of forms through which necessary data is collected from users. It is likely that the users may feed invalid data which my in turns increase the time for its processing or fire error or bugs back to users. Thus form entry could be a lengthy job for end users. To avoid this mess, Yii provides form creation and data validation tools that will take care of the form design. The data can be validated with the help of various widgets and data validate objects. DOA - Data access objects are another beauty of this framework. All the web applications are bound to use a database and to avoid any kind of repetition of data connection and SQL queries to fetch desired data set; Yii provides a set of database objects. Debugging and error fixing - With any framework, it is very tedious to locate exact error point and understand the cause of the error. Yii has been designed with a well compliant debugger who makes it possible to run through every line of code and detect error. The error messages rendered by the framework are easy to understand and are displayed categorically. This really saved the developerâ€™s time to analyze and correct the error.
Themes – Framework is not just a set of scripts that makes the developer’s job easier, however, it must also provide an elegant way to exhibit the website with proper design. Yii has got a broad spectrum of themes and skins which makes it lovable by the designers too. Customized touches can be given to the existing theme to make it distinct and personalized to represent the website in a relevant manner.
Security – While dealing with frameworks, security is the main concern. Yii has the technique to find the threats such SQL injections and other ways of hacking websites.
