CodeIgniter - A great framework to build great projects!

Codeigniter's syntax patterns are expressive and elegant. Unit testing support. Well documented. but as CodeIgniter tries to retain backward compatibility with PHP 4, here comes Laravel to the rescue. It has good features and it is updated. Wikipedia has mentioned, “according to a March 2015 developer’s survey on PHP frameworks popularity, Laravel was listed as the most popular PHP framework of 2015, followed by Symfony2, Nette, CodeIgniter, Yii2, and others.

CodeIgniter has a very small footprint. The source code is very small sized. Setting up a project is very easy. Follows MVC pattern. Consumes low memory and CPU. Well documented. Has a built-in forum for users to discuss and get the solution for issues. Periodically updates versions and patch fixes etc.

A classic, solid PHP MVC framework

In my experience, I tinkered with Zend and Cake initially before CodeIgniter. I recall getting stuck multiple occasions with Zend and Cake when I first started learning the MVC architecture. When I found CodeIgniter, the experience was different and it was much easier to learn. Part of it was becasue the documentation at the time were easier to follow. The documentation consisted of examples for all the built in classes that helped expedite the learning process.

Sturdy and Reliable

Similar to the other frameworks, CodeIgniter was chosen due to its community and popularity. It has much of the same aspects of the other frameworks we evaluated, except .Net which obviously doesn't use PHP. CakePHP has a CakeBake function that we wish we had with CodeIgniter, but it was a small price to pay for the amount of help we received in the CodeIgniter community and by searching online for help.

CodeIgniter – An excellent choice for beginners and those who need to start coding right now!

Laravel is the de facto upgrade path for any and all web developers coming from any version of CodeIgniter. However, Laravel brings a level of complexity that can be intimidating to new developers or wasteful to experienced developers with simple requirements.

In terms of performance, Laravel 5.4 on PHP 7.0/7.1 is truly one of the fastest web frameworks on the Internet.

A PHP framework for small and medium size projects

CodeIgniter is a great choice for small or medium projects that can be deployed in every kind of hosting, especially those oriented to low-cost hostings like GoDaddy. Symfony and Laravel are frameworks for highly scalable projects with hundreds of plugins available. Also, these frameworks allow you to use any ORM of your choice, such as Doctrine or Eloquent or Propel; CodeIgniter instead forces you to use its default ORM. There are ways to add a different ORM and then it's a workaround and kinda "hacky" solution.

CodeIgniter - The Little Framework that could.

Both older and new versions of CodeIgniter lack installation via Composer. Laravel is our other framework of choice; its installation, updates, and addition of third party packages are significantly easier with Composer. CodeIgniter is our primary framework as our CMS is build on it and creating custom integrations and add-ons for it with CodeIgniter are easily accomplished.

CodeIgniter and its uses

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Alternatives Considered

Because of CodeIgniter's fast speed and well-developed architecture, it stacks up against the rest of the PHP frameworks. CodeIgniter can also be modified to use the Hierarchical Model View Controller (HMVC) development pattern which allows CodeIgniter developers to group similar sections of a site into modules in a sub-directory format. But unlike some competing frameworks, Laravel comes with built-in unit-testing support, which allows you to test each feature individually and eliminate errors and bugs. Laravel includes a built-in database query builder.

Although lacks installation using composer, its not difficult to install this framework. Because of its open platform, documentation and resources its easy to create a project and make it better. Can get a lot of help from the developer community who have used it previously. As there is no cost associated with this framework, it was great not having to worry about purchasing or licensing.
