I coded a new extension and because of the fact that I am just a hobby developer and a yii newbie, I want you guys to take a look at my work before I release it.

I know it isnt well documentated. By the way, do you know where I can find something like a tutorial how to documentate coding projects professionally?



inspired by and based on DateTimeI18NBehavior by Ricardo Grana.

FormatDateTimeBehavior automatically converts date and time attributes from database to local format (I18N) and vice versa.

But even if you use the original english formats, it may be useful. It could automatically shorten your time fields for example.

Furthermore it provides the following practical features:

  • If an attribute is empty, it will be saved to database with the null value (btw: why does yii not behave like this by default?).

  • If an attribute is null, it can replace null with another value for views (to realize something like open end for example).
