Module support?

#15
Hi,

David Connelly here, from Inside Club dot org. I just want to add my voice to those who support modules - particularly the HMVC way of doing things.

I can tell you that over the years I have successfully built and sold at least 300 HMVC based websites. Right now I'm finishing off an app for a call centre which was build entirely in Codeigniter, HMVC. What I can tell you is that the clients absolutely LOVE that way of doing things. The reason why they are so happy is because:

* Glitches are usually self contained within modules and can be fixed easily and quickly.

* Bolting extra parts onto systems is super easy.

* Multiple web developers can collaborate harmoniously without stepping on each others' toes.

In the past I've built sites which are not modular and my experience is that they eventually fall apart like a house of cards, once you start stacking too many features onto them. An example is the car manufacturer Saab. In 2005 I built a PHP system which helped them to process manufacturing and ordering of vehicles. It was a cool system at first and everyone was happy. However, as time went on and more and more features got added, it started to fall apart at the seams. Every time they asked me for a new feature I was full of dread. Eventually it became a nightmare for everyone involved.

Thanks to HMVC that has all changed. You can just stack tonnes and tonnes of features on, safe in the knowledge that it will never break. Structurally, I'm convinced that it's the best way to build web apps.

For what it's worth, the one other thing I would urge is to please do NOT take Codeigniter down the same road as Laravel. Laravel is only a few years old and already they're talking about version 6. I think that the whole Laravel community is currently immersed in an aggressive rewrite culture and I know for a fact that clients cannot stand that kind of thing. The clients I'm dealing with - some of whom are paying me six figure sums for web apps - wouldn't touch Laravel with a barge pole. The reason why they wouldn't touch it is because they don't want their application to be out of date after six months. So please, let the new versions of Codeigniter come out slowly and with concern for the clients who are potentially going to be stuck with old versions. Please do not make Codeigniter a "me too " framework.

Okay, I'm done. Sorry for waffling.

-DC
