I would like to know if its possible to call Gii from the command line. Or the Gii functionality would probably be a more accurate request. yiic works but it lacks some of the functionality that I use in Gii. Mainly the ability to chose which template to use.
I am in the prototyping stage of a fairly large project, database and template files are changing frequently. I have configured several templates and with Gii I create the code for modules by selecting the templates that is associated with the DB-table. It is working great and saves me lots of time. If I can bash-script or php-script it, it would be awesome.
I come from cakephp and I am impressed with yii.
