Creating Yii Sites With Yii


Yii newbie here. I would like to use a yii site to create yii code for other sites - so my application would be used to generate standalone yii sites - ie yii sites that don’t have anything to do with the site generator itself, no dependencies, only dependencies on yii itself. These are simple sites, nothing too complicated so its not trying to be glamorous. The generator would be used to just fillout some forms or possibly read configuration information from a db or xml files, and then use that config data to spit out yii sites

Whats the best way to go about this ?

Would my app just call yiic within yii, and then just customise portions of the generated code ?

Is yiic going to disappear anytime soon ? If so, how would I use gii instead ?
