CodeIgniter, a strong PHP framework is built for developers who need an easy and
stylish way to develop website applications having full features. CodeIgniter is
based on model–view–controller (MVC) where the controller class is compulsory and
model and view classes are optional. It can be modified to maintain a modular group
of Controller, model and view by using something called the Hierarchical MVC
(HMVC).iFourTechnolab, leading custom
software development company, has used CodeIgniter in many projects
and mastered its applications in different services that it provides. iFour has an

now-a-days. The MVC architecture provides nice code segregation and keeps
CodeIgniter works with both PHP
4 and 5. This fact that the framework works on either, makes working seamlessly
between the two platforms much easier.
CodeIgniter is very easy to
understand, write and extend. New libraries, modifying the existing
libraries and modifying the overall framework can quite easily be done in
CodeIgniter has a lot of built
in libraries and tools in one single package. It also consists of help
options for things like forms, file handling, arrays, strings, cookies,
directories and more. Moreover, libraries and help option of own can be created
if the in-built are not enough.
Installing new frameworks is
one of the toughest experiences by any coder. If UNIX is used, a lot of commands
are required for the installation process. CodeIgniter can be installed by
directly uploading the files to the directory. No prior or peer packages or
server modifications are required for this purpose.
CodeIgniter allows the
implementation of as much low or high security as required by the app.
There are some things that it does by default like unsetting of all global
variables. But there are lots of security features that can be enabled or
disabled as per necessity.
With a very efficient database
extraction layer, easy inserting, deleting and updating can be done without the
need to write raw SQL. It handles connection to multiple databases within one
application and also lets manipulation of databases like add/remove columns from
tables and create new tables.
It has a large user community,
which allows a platform for a wide discussion. The CodeIgniter website has a
forum and wiki for answering various questions to be answered.

CodeIgniter is its documentation. EllisLab is the company behind
CodeIgniter and they spend a lot of time that is very necessary to have proper
documentations for their user community.
