Hi you have to do following things for theming in yii2 as simple as yii1 :-

  1. first of all open web.php into config directory of yii2 application,
  2. then in component array pass view array like:

        'view' => [
                  'theme' => [
                     'pathMap' => [ 
                        '@app/views' => [ 
                ] // here demo is your folder name

now create the folder name as "themes" into web directory.

In this themes folder copy your html folder like(demo) which contains all css, js etc. files. in this folder create views folder as yii which contains main.php and others layouts if needed.

override index.php in views by your corresponding index file by appropriate changes into paths of files. create corresponding views and actions for your html files. in yii2 we can define our css and js into Appasset.php .
