help me decide

#1
Hello!
I dug deeper into this framework, I would like to hear from those who had to deal with it directly. What is the general opinion? Pros and cons?
Thanks.

In short: Codeigniter is fast and easy to learn. And it has a lot of nice people here at the forum.

Thanks!Of that I have no doubt.


I was looking up vacations to go on with my girlfriend for St V’s, and guess what, there are some steal-cheap prices but they all disappear like snow in March. I am figuring if I wait a little longer I will have to go for a significantly more expensive options, I would hate to do that. I am calculating that I still win if I pay a fee for using a payday loan and buy a tour now. I know that this is not exacly an emergency sitch, but what the hell nobody cares what I’m gonna use the money for right? What do you guys think? Here’s the link to get more info about current offers, it does seem like a feasible plan to me. I am getting paid on 27th so should be able to return the money well before the maturity date.

I've read (almost everywhere) that CI 3 is easy to learn. Does this apply to CI 4 as well?

I am not the right person to answer that since I've only touched CI4 briefly. But, if it's your first framework, I think it is better to start with ci3, since there are many more tutorials out there. When you've learned ci3 you can stick to that or move along to ci4.

Have fun!

As a framework, CodeIgniter is relatively lightweight, meaning that you will need to write code or use third-party code for some commonly needed, more complex tasks, i.e. authentication. In other words, it won't solve every problem for you out of the box. IMO, that's a good thing because you have lots of latitude for problem-solving.

I would not start with version 3. The new, soon to be released, version 4 utilizes current best-practices. It's a thoroughly modern rewrite of v3. While v4 will likely have some growing pains it will be very stable for a first release and I expect fixes will be quickly available for any problems as they are discovered.

I have been working with the code-base as development has progressed and have found it impressively stable and enjoyable to use.

In the long-run, version 4 is the way to go. If you start with v3 you will have to learn new (and current best-practice) syntax when you move up to v3. As a learner, it would be wise to learn the current state-of-the-art.

Learning either one is equally easy - and challenging.

Likewise as @dave friend said above you should start with CI 4, you can always get
help under the CodeIgniter 4 forum topic.
