CI4: email and captcha need recommendation - Avega Soft - 08-13-2019

Hi, everybody. 

Version CI3 includes an email library and Captcha helper. But in the version of the CI4 they are not. What would you recommend using alternative libraries/helpers of third-party solutions in this case? Will email library (from CI3) be ported for version 4? Thanks!

As far as I know, email is a work in progress and will be included in the initial release.

There are about a zillion captcha class examples and demos on the web. A Google search for "php captcha class" returned just short of 15 million results in .58 seconds.

Of course, in a google search you can find many variants for captcha classes. But I would like to get community recommendations on what they use captcha's libraries in their projects.

Email will be included in RC1 - a ported version of the CI3 lib. A more flexible one is slated for 4.1.

As for captcha - the one CI3 had was pretty easy to be broken by bots nowadays so it was ripped. I think reCaptcha is the best currently.

CI4 does have a simple honeypot built in, though, that can provide similar protection to CI3's captcha. I hope to expand it on it future releases.

Thank you for your answer. Where can I see the email library code for version 4?  maybe there is a link to github?

The CI4 GitHub has a "feature/email" branch. I'm not sure if there is anything to see there.
