Overall Satisfaction with CodeIgniter

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.


  • Quick setup of MVC structure, someone can just install it and it's ready to use.
  • Great option for routing.
  • Security benefits.
  • Built-in libraries.


  • Faced some issue of session management, so that's why we used the Core Session library for that. It would be great if we could improve it a little bit.
  • Frameworks provide the option to setup all getters/setters, so having this option in it is a great idea.
  • The great thing about the CI is we were able to start the work instantly.
  • Code deployment is very easy.
  • The rich collection of the built-in library saved a lot of our time.
We have used the express framework as well, but the issue is slow development in express because it takes a lot of time to restart the server on every change on the backend.
For startup/beginner companies its a great framework and MVC is fully implemented. We can maintain, reuse, and manage the code easily.
