Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our company, as a startup, has decided to implement the whole solution in the MVC framework so that we can do the development quickly. One of the best possible options was CodeIgniter, so that's why we decided to use it.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

CodeIgniter is an open-source PHP web application framework which can be used for rapid development without the overhead of having to constantly build reusable components. I have been using CodeIgniter for now 2 years and really loved it, it is smooth, with best features and easy to use. Well documented and fresher can read and use very easily. Build many products, admin panel etc. using CodeIgniter. Easily themes can be integrated into it. Lightweight, fast performance.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

CodeIgniter is a great PHP framework for web development. We have used this framework for around 2 years. For small and medium projects like ours it work like magic. Our API development department was very happy with API development for Android applications and these work as expected.

We have used CodeIgniter for our Android API development to send and receive user inputs for school management and results checking facility. One of our media websites was running with CodeIgniter.

It's a very good framework for shared hosting servers. Because CodeIgniter's source code is smaller and does not require high memory or CPU, CodeIgniter helps us to reduce server costs also.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We developed our internal reporting dashboard using CodeIgniter. It allows the whole organization to login and gain access to many reports that deal with different aspects of our company. The dashboard is a great tool to help us review our performance as a company and help us share information to everyone within the company.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have used CodeIgniter as the mainstay in company intranets for multiple clients. This has allowed us to quickly create and deploy customized intranet/portals for companies to use and manage. CodeIgniter allows us to make specific changes to meet a client's needs and allows us to use the built in features and framework to not have to recreate things for each client.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

CodeIgniter has been an integral part of our web development firm for years, and continues to be the backbone of over a dozen active projects. Our firm not only uses it for customer projects, but also for internal projects that require a simple framework.

In terms of solving business problems, it saves our customers and our programmers hours of time, because numerous tasks such as database queries and authentication are abstracted using industry standards. That is, programmers do not have to worry about escaping user input, connecting to a specific database driver, importing dependencies, or routing HTTP URIs.

CodeIgniter has been our marketing team's main tool to help us build our micro-sites to recruit students and grow our business for the past two years. They have leveraged CodeIgniter in ways that our previous solutions were unable to provide, and has helped to differentiate the feel of our sites.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I used CodeIgniter on a previous project. The project was a Learning Management System. Back then CodeIgniter was in version 2. For small and medium size projects it was a perfect choice. It provided a simple way to access MySQL databases with its own ORM, a low learning curve, plenty of documentation and developers working on it plus you were able to deploy a CodeIgniter projects in any hosting provider, for real, from GoDaddy to AWS. The main problem when it comes to using a PHP framework it's the learning curve. It's common that projects have to increase features really fast, and depending on the learning curve, it can take from 1 to 3 months to have a decent level when it comes to writing code in certain PHP framework. CodeIgniter has a very low learning curve; In a couple of weeks, you can learn how to use most of the common things.

CodeIgniter is the framework our content management system is built on. It is used university wide. CodeIgniter allows the web services team to easily develop customizations within the CMS. Some applications include developing API integrations with other third party services, our single sign on program, cache breaking, along with text and image manipulation.

CodeIgniter is old, but still awesome for when you need to do PHP projects. Great architecture, beautiful documentation and easily understandable. System settings let you create your own code according to requirement. The best part is a major software developer community has used CodeIgniter so you can get every question's solution on the internet.

Beautiful, intuitive code and a strong framework for PHP which is stable. CodeIgniter makes your code beautiful and easy to comprehend, read, write and review codes. Built lots of products and projects using Codeigniter like CMS, OMS, WMS etc. Well suited for both small and big projects. Very easy to learn this framework, beautifully documented, no guidance needed for new learners.
