Code Igniter vs Laravel

#9
I personally enjoy using CI for the following reasons:

1. It's faster than most "newer" frameworks. You can tell which frameworks use the exact same http request and responds libraries because they are all in the same "block" in any speed test. This means you need more server power to get the same results as CI.

2. It takes very little memory. Again most "newer frameworks" take gobs of memory just to start up this adds to server hosting cost as well as the CPU cost (see #1)

3. I like the CI controller lazy loading. All this add every single route manually stuff is a pain in my opinion. CI supports custom routes if you want to go that way. CI 3 even supports request methods. But, I don't understand why manually adding routes is the latest craze? it's certainly not faster (see #1)

4. Seems Laravel changes it's idea of what's "hot and new" with every release. If you built a Laravel 3 program just 2 years ago when Laravel 3 was "hot off the presses" it wouldn't even be supported today. I Feel bad for the people that wrote books. They were outdated before they even shipped. They are already working on Laravel 5 and from what I understand it's changing stuff yet again. If you need to support an application for more than a couple of years this is going to be an issue.

5. All this stuff about CI not supporting Composer is just crazy? I have been using a number of composer libraries in my CI applications for the past year+. CI 3 includes the composer Autoloader? so big deal CI isn't namespaced?

6. I know CI like the back of my hand. Sure some of the lib's are a little dated but, the core is pretty darn solid. Composer in anything else you don't agree with. The core should be tight and fast in my opinion. Not some bloated 30+ class library.

7. Want a laravel "piece"? Composer it in.

Take it or leave it... but that's my 2 cents...
