Hi,

I am building a web application using CI HMVC framework. My question is very simple. How wise it would be to use drupal as a backend in a codeigniter application. By the term backend I mean, the admin part will be a drupal installation. All I want to acheive is codeigniter will be interacting with drupal database and pull the information from over there to display it on frontend. In short my frontend will be a codeigniter application which will be using drupal database. Has anyone tried this?

I haven't tried it yet but i think it is possible, because CI just use Drupal database to display data which you can write MVC separately with Drupal application.

Seems kind of silly since Drupal is designed to do both front and back together (it is a CMS, after all). But it can be done.

If you want to display drupal's data in CI, it is possible. You should only need to know in which table,field in which format data is saved by drupal.
