Module support?

#54
Without getting too religious on it, your example is exactly why, in my opinion, everything should be a separate library. That way the logic is contained away from any controllers and, when the boss comes and says, "I need X, Y and Z", you just have to pull the pieces together into a new controller and you're done. The logic was already there and separate.

But - before we really start this tired debate up again, let's step back for a minute. What are both controllers and libraries? They're both simply PHP classes. That's it. They just fulfill different roles. A controller typically just directs traffic, receiving the request, gathering the parts together that's needed, whether it's from a library, model, external site, whatever. Libraries in CI3 just simply meant "any other class that wasn't a model or controller".

In CI3, the controller had a certain peculiarity about it that made it the reason that some of said we didn't recommend HMVC in CodeIgniter. Yes, I've used Wired's HMVC on many a project, and if you've every looked at the code you'll see the hacks that he had to do to make it work correctly, in large part by storing a separate controller that all others would reference since "$this" would tie back to the Controller instance, no matter what controller or model you were in.

Anyway, CodeIgniter 4 does not support HMVC by name, but we do support modular code, and you should be able to do just about everything you could with the HMVC package that your'e used to. Most of this comes through standard PHP features, like namespacing, and a PSR-4 autoloader. We've provided ways to get the views and helpers in namespaced folders, also. The primary difference is that if you want to route to a "module's" controller, you have to do it manually.
