Yii2 create new empty project


Is there a way to create a new empty project in Yii2 like Yii 1.1.x?

Something like (with yiic.bat)

..\yiic.bat webapp myNewProjectName


You can use Yii 2 Advanced Project Template or Yii 2 Basic Project Template (they used to be called Application Templates before).

You can create the empty template with composer (see the docs linked above).
