Yii2 Database settings


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist pheme/yii2-settings "*"

or add

"pheme/yii2-settings": "*"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

Subsequently, run

./yii migrate/up --migrationPath=@vendor/pheme/yii2-settings/migrations

in order to create the settings table in your database.


There are 2 parts to this extension. A module and a component. The module provides a simple GUI to edit your settings. The component provides a way to retrieve and save settings programmatically.

Add this to your main configuration's modules array

'modules' => [
    'settings' => [
        'class' => 'pheme\settings\Module',
        'sourceLanguage' => 'en'

Add this to your main configuration's components array

'components' => [
    'settings' => [
        'class' => 'pheme\settings\components\Settings'

Typical component usage

$settings = Yii::$app->settings;

$value = $settings->get('section.key');

$value = $settings->get('key', 'section');

$settings->set('section.key', 'value');

$settings->set('section.key', 'value', null, 'string');

$settings->set('key', 'value', 'section', 'integer');

// Automatically called on set();


To use a custom settings form, you can use the included SettingsAction.

  1. Create a model class with your validation rules.
  2. Create an associated view with an ActiveForm containing all the settings you need.
  3. Add pheme\settings\SettingsAction to the controller's actions.

The settings will be stored in section taken from the form name, with the key being the field name.


class Site extends Model {

    public $siteName, $siteDescription;

    public function rules()
        return [
            [['siteName', 'siteDescription'], 'string'],

    public function fields()
        return ['siteName', 'siteDescription'];

    public function attributes()
        return ['siteName', 'siteDescription'];


<?php $form = ActiveForm::begin(['id' => 'site-settings-form']); ?>

<?= $form->field($model, 'siteName') ?>
<?= $form->field($model, 'siteDescription') ?>
<?= Html::submitButton('Save', ['class' => 'btn btn-success']) ?>

<?php ActiveForm::end(); ?>


function actions(){
   return [
            'site-settings' => [
                'class' => 'pheme\settings\SettingsAction',
                'modelClass' => 'app\models\Site',
                //'scenario' => 'site', // Change if you want to re-use the model for multiple setting form.
                //'section' => 'site', // By default use modelClass formname value 
                'viewName' => 'site-settings'   // The form we need to render
