After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

CKEditor Widget for Yii2

Latest Version Build Status Coverage Status Quality Score Total Downloads

Renders a CKEditor WYSIWYG text editor plugin widget.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

or add

to the require section of your application's composer.json file.

Skins & Plugins

This widget works with default's dev-full/stable branch of CKEditor, with a set of plugins and skins. If you wish to configure a different skins or plugins that the one proposed, you will have to download them separately and configure the widget's clientOptions attribute accordingly.


The library comes with two widgets: CKEditor and CKEditorInline. One is for classic edition and the other for inline editing respectively.

Using a model with a basic preset:

Using inline edition with basic preset:

How to add custom plugins

This is the way to add custom plugins to the editor. Since version 2.0 we are working with the packagist version of the CKEditor library, therefore we are required to use its configuration API in order to add external plugins.

Lets add the popular Code Editor Plugin for example. This plugin would allow us to add a button to our editor's toolbar so we can add code to the content we are editing.

Assuming you have downloaded the plugin and added to the root directory of your Yii2 site. I have it this way:

+ frontend 
+ -- web 
    + -- pbckcode 

We can now add it to our CKEditor widget. For this example I am using CKEditorInline widget. One thing you notice on this example is that we do not use the preset attribute; this is highly important as we want to add a customized toolbar to our widget. No more talking, here is the code:

Browse & Upload

To browse and upload files, the KCFinder plugin is used, which is disabled by default.

To enable it, just use 'kcfinder'=>true.

See this simple example code:

The upload folder name is upload in the root web directory by default.

You can set options for the kcfOptions parameter, and can find all KCFinder's options in this link:

For change upload directory or change some options you can see this advanced example code:

About extra assets

You maybe wonder why there is file dosamigos-ckeditor.widget.js. The reason is that due to the way Yii2 works with forms and Cross-Site Request Forgery (csrf). CKEditor does not trigger the on change event nor collects the CSRF token when using file uploads.

The asset tackles both issues.


To test the extension, is better to clone this repository on your computer. After, go to the extensions folder and do the following (assuming you have composer installed on your computer):

Once all required libraries are installed then do:
