How yii2-vote works


Next steps will guide you through the process of installing yii2-vote using composer. Installation is a quick and easy three-step process.

Step 1: Install component via composer

Run command

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist chiliec/yii2-vote "^4.2"

or add

"chiliec/yii2-vote": "^4.2"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

Step 2: Configuring your application

Add following lines to your main configuration file:

'bootstrap' => [
'modules' => [
    'vote' => [
        'class' => 'chiliec\vote\Module',
        // show messages in popover
        'popOverEnabled' => true,
        // global values for all models
        // 'allowGuests' => true,
        // 'allowChangeVote' => true,
        'models' => [
            // example declaration of models
            // \common\models\Post::className(),
            // 'backend\models\Post',
            // 2 => 'frontend\models\Story',
            // 3 => [
            //     'modelName' => \backend\models\Mail::className(),
            //     you can rewrite global values for specific model
            //     'allowGuests' => false,
            //     'allowChangeVote' => false,
            // ],

And add widget in view:

<?php echo \chiliec\vote\widgets\Vote::widget([
    'model' => $model,
    // optional fields
    // 'showAggregateRating' => true,
]); ?>

Also you can add widget for display top rated models:

<?php echo \chiliec\vote\widgets\TopRated::widget([
    'modelName' => \common\models\Post::className(),
    'title' => 'Top rated models',
    'path' => 'site/view',
    'limit' => 10,
    'titleField' => 'title',
]) ?>

Step 3: Updating database schema

After you downloaded and configured Yii2-vote, the last thing you need to do is updating your database schema by applying the migrations:

$ php yii migrate/up --migrationPath=@vendor/chiliec/yii2-vote/migrations
