Codeigniter download install web vs Composer

#4
The vendor folder for CodeIgniter 3 contains the dependencies needed for unit testing the framework. Any developer can run "composer update" and pull the latest version of those in to "vendor", without harming their production app.

CodeIgniter 4 provides for addins being loaded with composer, so the "vendor" folder is more integral to many apps (if they use addins), and "composer update" might *have* to be run to pull in the latest version of needed external components.

If new to PHP-OOP, it's probably a good idea to avoid composer until you need it for a third party addin that you want to add to your app without having to manually download it and copy the files into your project folder.
