Yii 2 Beta Release - Hurray
It is now 3am in the morning. My love is sleeping happily. And I am happily learning about the new version of the Yii framework. It is just awesome as usual :) I can see lots of work have been put into this version. Now Yii has 2 application templates (basic , advanced) and tons of new features which should make it a leading framework again :) It offers so much more than Laravel (more opinionated) and offers a lot more features out of the box :) Beta version also gives me more confidence in its stablity.
I prefer the way Yii handle validations with scenarios. Have been struggling to find a validation package in Laravel that does something similar. There is Ardent, Magniloquent but they are not exactly what I want. The one that is more similar is Laravel Extended Validator. Was writing a Laravel portal but stopped halfway. I cannot resist playing with Yii. Yea!!!
So excited. Bootstrap supported by default! Captcha, login, RBAC, migrations, etc.
Ok, time to sleep :) The journey is long and exciting.
