Code Igniter vs Laravel

#33
I think it comes down to what you are doing.

Most of my code is single programmer (me) stuff for clients. I don't work in a team, I am the only guy in the company that knows how to code half decently (the other guy is a 'functions are good?' type of guy).

The other thing is my projects tend to be smaller - they can be done if 50-100 hours or so.

I spent a lot of time looking at different frameworks and methodologies, and for web based work of the above scale, CI is the choice for me.

The main reasons are:
  1. CI is fricken fast
  2. It enforces discipline. The MVC framework FORCES you (if you want) to code with a separation of concerns. Great for new programmer and a gentle reminder to old hands (sometime we forget and go the quick hack route)
  3. CI doesnt force you to be in it all the time. You can jump into plain Php then back into CI as needed. 
  4. Helpers help you with #3. Not CI specific of course.
  5. Routes and Session have never been a problem for me as I have only relatively simple problems to solve. 
  6. Doc is small - you can 'be across' the whole framework in an afternoon and grok it soon after. 
To me #1, #3 and #6 are the big reasons.

So for smaller issues that can be coded by a single programmer in 50-100 hours then CI is a strong choice.
