The input class makes it easy to provide server-side validation and scrubbing of user input. Setting Error messages. It doesn't require constant command-line access, It's great because it has a strong community and excellent documentation, but the problem is that it tries to retain backward compatibility with PHP 4 and therefore lacks a lot of "standard" features modern frameworks have such as auto-loading.

If you have small or medium level sites to develop, CodeIgniter does perform very well. Although, developing blog and news portal type websites, it is very good and reliable to use.

Projects are a high requirement, CodeIgniter needs to customize a lot. Like developing an online shopping cart with CodeIgniter requires a lot of functionality. Complex functionality requires adding more assets for it to function properly and the codebase is then larger than expected.

CodeIgniter is a great MVC framework for PHP. If you would like to learn the model view controller architecture and object oriented programming, I found CodeIgniter easier to pick up versus Cake or Zend. CodeIgniter like any other MVC frameworks is designed for building robust applications that keep your logic separated from your display (view) allowing for better organization and team development. Although you can use CodeIgniter as a one page application, there are better frameworks out there for that and more lightweight such as angular, and reactjs.

This is a great framework for people with knowledge of MVC frameworks and PHP experience. We have used it for maintaining web portals/intranets for clients, and it has exceeded our expectations. This might not be the right tool for people looking for a CMS or more complicated applications. But, because of its open platform and resources, I am sure it could work for many more applications.

CodeIgniter is very well-suited to those beginning PHP web development, and who are tired of writing the same code over and over (like authentication mechanisms). It is a very good choice for those looking for a framework that will not try to "dictate" how their application is designed and which choices are made.

Situations where highly modular code is required and where more advanced features like queuing and hooking are needed are situations where CodeIgniter is not a good choice. More modern frameworks like CakePHP and Laravel are much better-suited.

When you can't afford an expensive hosting tool such as a VPS or AWS you might want to consider using CodeIgniter. Also, when you don't have much time to train a developers' team and need a low learning curve PHP framework. When you need a highly scalable framework with lots of plugins, CodeIgniter might not be the best choice. Instead a better choice could be a framework like Laravel.

For smaller applications, CodeIgniter seems well suited. When building larger applications it seems to get a little heavy as features are added. That may be due to lack of experience architecting a larger application with CodeIgniter.

Best framework to use for API integration because of its architecture. CodeIgniter is a powerful PHP framework with a very small footprint, built for developers who need a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured web applications. It is most often praised for its lightning speed when compared to other PHP MVC frameworks.
