Yii 2 Bootstrap not working


I downloaded the basic template and I am creating an application in Yii 2.

I cannot get Bootstrap to work. I notice in the docs it states to install via composer but I downloaded the basic template.

If anyone can show me how to do it with or without composer that would be great.

I have created my Nav widget and its echoing the HTML but no CSS is there to style it?


Just thought if I am putting my app on web server that does not have composer on it, will it not work?

I do not get it, am I missing the loading of the bootstrap css, or am I missing bootstrap altogether?

Ok got this working. Just installed composer.
