Everyone once in a while, I take take a look at the other side of web applications – the development side. After all, the web app itself and how it came to be are two sides of the same coin. After getting my hands dirty with other PHP frameworks, I decided it was time for me to do a review on my favorite. Say hello to one of the simplest and most functional frameworks out there – CodeIgniter.
CodeIgniter is a PHP framework that simplifies application creation, making it easy and possible to make even complex applications.
CodeIgniter was built for PHP coders who wanted a clear and thorough documentation, where you can build web applications and blogs in as little as twenty minutes. Very lightweight and very simple to get up and running. Simply unzip the folder to a directory and modify the database configuration and you’re all set.
I plan on using CodeIgniter for a few personal projects, and what little progress I have made has been seamless and enjoyable.
I strongly recommend helping youself to a dose of powerful coding by using CodeIgniter if you plan on developing a web application – or even if you dont.
