Hi there.
In my new company we'll start an important project. I have a Symfony background and wanted to use Codeigniter for this project.

My questions:
1. Our company already have a CMS for backend used in many other projects. I want to use that. Would that be a problem? I guess no. It's procedural code written years ago.

2. Is there a Propel like ORM layer or should we add it ourselves?

Thanks.

1.) You will have to put some work into integrating them, or have them running side-by-side. Without knowing more we couldn't say anything useful either way.

2.) There are loads of ORM solutions. Search for Doctrine or DataMapper.

1) I'm guessing the CMS just controls manipulation of various database variables and content? Then theoretically that shouldn't be too hard.
