Please point me in the right direction for this DB oriented project.

Although I'm making fair good progress. I am just now learning codeignitor.

I am working on a database oriented project for an HOA. There will be about 1000 records, and some relational work. I think the project will be mostly CRUD oriented. I will also need different levels of user authentication. There will be forms and reports. I would love to have inline editing, but I doubt I can get that, even with a third part library.

I am wondering if codeignitor is good choice for such a project. Codeignitor does not seem to do crud natively. I know there are 3rd party libraries, but I'm a little less comfortable with that. Codeignitor also does not seem to have any sort of native authentication - but I guess I can write my own.

I suppose the two third party apps, that might be helpful for me, would be Rapyd or CodeCrafter. Of those two, which would be more appropriate for this project? Or, for this particular project, maybe I'd be better off with another tool? I was also looking at AutoCRUD - I don't know if anybody knows anything about that. I was also thinking about CakePHP.

Any advice, or relevant information would be appreciated.

Nothing out there will magically create the CRUD and authentication for you. You may have read about Ruby on Rails, or other frameworks with scaffolding, Code Igniter has it as well - but it is only intended for development purposes, not live usage.

Code Igniter is an excellent framework - but there is no "make authentication" button - it will require some work (although it's minimal compared to a straight PHP solution).

Honestly, I'm not a fan of CakePHP - I find their documentation lacking and sprawled out all over god's green earth. Code Igniter's documentation is in plain English, readily available, and the community is excellent.

If you're looking for a powerful framework, that fills a small footprint on your server, and one that is fast - Code Igniter is the way to go.
