Does CI have a way to reuse a form like Symfony? - Polymorphism - 06-11-2021

I've used Symfony in the past and that has some functionality where a form can be defined as an object and then that form object can be reused. That's great because it means you only need to create a single form but use it in multiple places.

Does Code Igniter have anything like that?

Forms in CodeIgniter are currently procedural (through the use of form_helper) and not yet object-oriented. It could be nice to have an OOP counterpart to it as well as other helpers.
