Yii PHP Framework Version 2
Thank you for choosing Yii 2 - a modern PHP framework designed for professional Web development.
Yii 2 is a complete rewrite of its previous version Yii 1.1 which is one of the most popular PHP frameworks. Yii 2 inherits the main spirit behind Yii for being simple, fast and highly extensible. Yii 2 requires PHP 5.4 and embraces the best practices and protocols found in modern Web application development.
