You can activate/deactivate Modules in config/config.php
$modules = array( 'DoctrineModule', 'DoctrineMongoODMModule', 'Core', 'Auth', 'Cv', 'Applications', 'Jobs', 'Settings', 'Pdf', );
If you want to customize the layout, you can do so by writing a plugin. The easiest way is to clone
the YawikDemoSkin into your
cd modules git clone https://github.com/cbleek/YawikDemoSkin
To activate the plugin you can either simply add
'YawikDemoSkin' to your modules array in
or if you don’t want to touch any code from git at all, simply put a file named eg.
in your autoload directory. Files named .module. are read to include additional Modules.
<?php return array("YawikDemoSkin");
This will add the module dynamically.
If modules contain data like images, javasript or css, which should be directly accessable by the Webserver, these data
should be placed into a directory named
public. To make this directory accessible to the Webserver place a symbolic
link into the
YAWIK/public directory, pointing to the modules public directory.
cd YAWIK/public ln -s ../modules/YawikDemoSkin/public YawikDemoSkin
It is a good practice to name the link with the modules name. This way, you can reference objects of the module by using the ModulesName within the URL.
Example: The YawikDemoSkin references its css in the layout.phtml
$this->headLink()->prependStylesheet($this->basePath() . '/YawikDemoSkin/YawikDemoSkin.css');
Next thing you propably want is to change the name of the Module. Search and replace all “YawikDemoSkin” with “MyModule” in the sources and rename the Directory “YawikDemoSkin” into “MyModule”. Do not forget to change the name in your “autoload/MyModule.module.php” file.
Now you have a module which you can use as a starting point for modifications.
customize your Skin by mapping more templates to your own views scripts.
If you want a completely own customized startpage, add a ‘startpage’ to your viewmap. It will be automatically picked, when you enter the name of the domain and have no session. But be aware, there is no login-box, unless you integrate it yourself.
YAWIK comes with bootstrap. Glyphicons are replaced by awesome fonts. The sources for for the main CSS
is currently build with lessc.
Bootstrap and awesome font sources are symlinked to the
The global CSS file is build with make-css.sh
you can install lessc on ubuntu by
sudo apt-get install npm sudo npm install -g less
Our YawikDemoSkin can be seen as an example, how to modify the CSS. The Skin needs a different height
for the fixed footer. This is achieved by creating a new less file, which can import our
yawik/yawik.less (a symlink is pointing to it). You can overwrite all less variables.
@import "yawik/yawik.less"; @footer-height: 39px;
Your customized CSS can be compiled with lessc like:
lessc YawikDemoSkin.less ../public/YawikDemoSkin.css
