CodeIgniter Web Application Development

codeigniter-logoCodeIgniter (CI) is a powerful PHP framework with a very small footprint. CodeIgniter gives web developers a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured web applications. CodeIgniter is not trying to be all things to all people. It is a lean MVC (model-view-controller) framework, with enough capabilities to improve a developers productivity, while providing for third-party addons/plugins for additional functionality.

CodeIgniter 3 requires PHP version 5.2.4 or later, and plays nicely with almost all shared or dedicated hosting platforms. Many web apps need a database, and CodeIgniter supports the most common options, including MySQL.
CodeIgniter’s MVC framework helps developers keep their code organized and modular and delivers a real enhancement to the overall efficiency of web development and web application maintenance. CodeIgniter can also be expanded to operate in a modular (HMVC) fashion allowing developers to write modules for one application and use them again in another. This means the code is reusable, which helps reduce development time and expense for our customers.

CI allows us to develop complex web applications with a robust set of tools – Calendar, e-mail, zip encoding, form validation, file uploads, sessions, unit testing… just a few of the built in libraries that come with CI. It also includes a boat load of default helpers for common things like forms, file handling, arrays, strings, cookies, directories, and more. And as if that wasn’t enough, we can create our own libraries and helpers or use code that has been developed by the CI community and posted to the wiki.

CodeIgniter is a community-developed open source project, with several venues for community members to gather and exchange ideas.

One of the hardest things with frameworks is the installation process. We tend to look for tools that can be installed and used by just uploading files to a directory. CI fits that bill nicely. No need for PEAR packages or server modifications to get the framework up and running. Just upload the files to the server, create a database, update a couple of configuration files, and we are off and running in minutes.

CI allows us to implement as much or as little security as needed for your web app. It does some things by default like unsetting global variables regardless of PHP’s register_globals directive, and turning off the magic_quotes_runtime directive during system initialization so it is not necessary to remove slashes when retrieving data from a database. Other settings can also be enabled easily such as cookie encryption, handling session data with a database, and automatically escaping SQL queries.

CI can handle connections to multiple databases within one application and connect to any of the following database types: MySQL (4.1+), MySQLi, MS SQL, Postgre, Oracle, SQLite, or ODBC. CI also facilitates the manipulation of your database; add/remove columns from tables, create new tables and remove old ones using its database forge library.

To sum up, CI is a powerful rapid web application development framework that not only helps us get your web solution off the ground faster (= less time and expense), but also provides a consistent structure for multiple developers to work on the same web application project with one set of consistent coding standards, libraries, and helpers.
