YII2 Website Development - What types of sites is it suitable for?

One of the most significant advantages of the framework, which both developers and users note, is high performance. This means that Yii2 web development is the best solution for creating sites that require high speed and work with high loads.

  • Framework Yii is chosen for such Internet resources:
  • major portals and forums;
  • large-scale online stores with complex logic;
  • web services;
  • eCommerce applications;
  • CMS - content management systems.

However, the low entry threshold and the availability of convenient tools make the Yii framework suitable for creating any site - from a small business card to a blog.

As a general rule, we recommend working with Yii2 if your project's needs really require functionality that the CMS cannot provide. Contact us and we will analyze your project to offer the best option.

  • The presence of a built-in mechanism for displaying blocks of linking, navigation, advertising on the site page.
  • Ability to translate application messages automatically thanks to the i18n component.
  • Auto-validation of forms and error reporting based on data from application models.
  • Rapid application prototyping.
  • Access of information in relational databases using the Active Record application design pattern.
  • The presence of a large number of extensions for the framework on Github.
  • A set of built-in data display widgets.
  • Simple basic registration and authentication mechanisms.
  • Comfortable debug-panel.


  • The framework is developing, but it lags behind the standards, language and a number of analogues.
  • Yii 2.0 has a very strong connection between backend and frontend. Initially, jQuery and Bootstrap are built into the core. This minus is planned to be eliminated in the next version of the framework.
  • Routes are not grouped and this reduces the flexibility of the routing system.

We are grateful to the team of Red Chameleon web agency for their professional approach and quality project realization.

The agency faced a rather difficult task - to create a new online store with a unique design. And it was important to meet the minimum possible deadlines.

As a result of cooperation with the web-studio we got the site exactly as we had imagined it when ordering the development. Programmers made page templates for different devices according to the designer's layouts and provided the project with all the necessary functions.

We would like to emphasize the interaction with the manager. Thanks to deep immersion in the project, we got not only a reliable representative of our interests in the web studio team, but also an experienced assistant.

We continue our cooperation with Red Chameleon and are glad that we have found a truly reliable business partner.
