I came across a note on the Yii guide 1.1.3 stating that the use of yiic tool for code generation is deprecated since 1.1.2 in favor of Gii.
Why should it be so? any reason why we can’t maintain code generation on both? why kind of limits does the command line approach impose?
Does that in any way, mean that yiic might be deprecated altogether in the future?
I rely on yiic as my primary interaction shell with the yii framework, i use it to inspect and try things, so for me it goes far more than just code generation.
but even for code generation, I would much rather keep using yiic as opposed to the graphical web-based Gii.
Its interesting also to hear the Yii developer community insight on this.
