php - Is it possible to link JavaScript files using <script src=""> in view files in yii 2


Firstly, I developed yii 1 applcation. In the application, I linked js files like this:

<script src="<?php echo Yii::app()->theme->baseUrl;?>/Index/script_nav.js"></script>

Is it possible to link JavaScript files using in yii 2 or should I link js files using appasset?




yii2 provides registerJsFile() function to inlucde js files.

<?php $this->registerJsFile('js/company-index.js'); ?>

And Yes you can include the js files withscript tag.

<script src="<?php echo Yii::$app->request->baseUrl;?>/js/youFile.js"></script>

but you should useregisterJsFile, See this answer :




You can use that in layout file



Like simple as

 <script src="myscripts.js"></script> 

For checking its linked or not use inspect element -> network (open this before landing page)

Here you can see your files.
