This may sound like a stupid question but will there still be models (not ActiveRecords) in Yii3?
I’m not sure because yiisoft/validator is now a custom package and you could do validation on your own without the requirement for custom objects anymore. Plus I read Behaviors and all the magic is removed in Yii3.
However I really like yii models because of their possibilities (different scenarios, converting them to arrays / building models from arrays, automatic validation translations, and all this) and I feel like the framework would miss a huge benefit without it. You were able to create really flexible and powerful objects in nearly no time.
Of course I could just copy the entire class hierarchy of Yii2 into a single new Model class and make it compatible with Yii3 again but I guess that’s not really the purpose.
So are there any plans for this?
