Making A Fiverr Clone - dustinwloring1988 - 07-16-2017

I'm going to be making a fiverr clone and was wondering if CI could handle something like this. I have never used CI in the past but just started reading up on it today.
What are your thoughts, good, bad or indifferent.

Thanks,
Dustin

I don't see any obvious reason why CodeIgniter or another Framework could not handle the task, you're building a web application and that's what CodeIgniter is for.

CodeIgniter can handle that, but you would also need things like Bootstrap framework and a good jQuery or javascript framework.

Your biggest hurdle is not building the app, but the catch 22 that will come after. Customers that find your site will not buy or come back without vendors, and vendors will not list until you can show they will get customers. What came first? The vendors or the customers?
