I’ve been using Yii1 for many projects. I’ve build so many functions and tools, did a lot of Gii customizing. Build extensive modules, CMS and so on. Years of programming. It does everything it needs to do and in a great way.
But when I see that it is in maintenance fase for so long already and Yii3.0 is so far developed yet (I could skip 2.0 maybe altogether ), I’m getting nervous. It only is getting harder to switch to the new version.
It’s just that I have to do so much work to upgrade and get to the same level, but only with a recent Yii version under the hood.
Any advice from people who are in the same boat? As long as there are no big security issues, should I just go on with it? Will it break in a few years?
Maybe it’s the curse of Yii1 being such a good product actually. I know the developers that build it think different probably, but for me it was the best thing that has come on my path of a developer.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
