The last digest this year.
I wish all of us to dive deep in new exciting projects with Yii2 in the next year (as I am sure there will be a stable release relatively soon, according the progress ;))
Stay in touch with development process, grow your skills with it, grow faster then it !

Tips & Tricks

@cebe :

class RedactorI18NAsset extends AssetBundle
    public $sourcePath = '@app/assets/redactor';
    public $js = [

    public function init()
        $this->js[] = 'jquery.ui.datepicker-' . Yii::$app->language . '.js';
<php $this->beginContent('@app/views/layouts/main.php'); ?>

<div class="row">
   <div class="col-md-3">
    <div class="pg-sidebar">          
      <?= $this->blocks['sidebar']; ?>

      <?= $this->blocks['toolbar']; ?>
  <div class="col-md-9">
    <?= $content; ?>
<php $this->endContent(); ?>

And in your controller, you set a new public variable: public $layout = "/main";
In your ControllerAction you can set layout by: $this->layout = "/column2";
