Why the hate for CI still

  • Every framework is perfect for some group of developers, and CodeIgniter has a core set of those Smile There is no single framework perfect for every situation.
  • Much of the criticism directed towards CodeIgniter a few years ago was justified ... it was in limbo, with an unclear direction.
  • Much of the criticism directed towards CodeIgniter these days feels like sour grapes, in much part because CodeIgniter doesn't bundle the same addins as many (most?) of the others, but also because of the history a few years ago.
  • Some of the criticism feels like "hipsters" complaining that CI is not jumping on the latest (good or bad) bandwagon, like PSR compatibility or your favorite authentication package. We're not trying to be hipsters!
  • Some of the CI community use different frameworks for different projects, based on suitability ... smart choice.
My personal feeling is that CodeIgniter4 is going to be an eye opener for many of the CI detractors, with its flexibility at the same time as its leanness, remaining true to the CI core values. Time will tell, of course, but to paraphrase a North American advertising slogan from some time ago, "I liked it so much I adopted the project" Smile

Well said. The project I am currently working on uses Laravel, but make no mistake, I am very excited for the upcoming CodeIgniter 4 release which I appreciate is taking some time for the reasons you've outlined.

The first PHP framework I came to use was CodeIgniter, and a number of my projects were built with it. I am very confident it is in safe hands under your direction and I can't wait to see where it goes. I just hope BCIT can be persuaded to encourage more students to participate in the project, and perhaps become more directly involved for the benefit of the academia and the CodeIgniter community.
