CodeIgniter Standalone Database/Active Record - noobie - 05-15-2015


I wanted to use CodeIgniter's Database Library and Active Record Class in a project, as the full framework would be too much for this project,

I searched and found this:

Is this reliable? I mean is it as safe as CodeIgniter itself? (I will validate and sanitize the input myself, by safety i mean escaping and being bug free like CI itself)

The reasons i want to use CI Class is:

1. Active Record Class escapes all data properly and automatically
2. I'm Used to it and really like it
3. I want to be able to change quickly between MySQL and MySQLi depending on the server
... you get the idea

I've tested recently, which made me regret... never using it again

Any help is appreciated
