Features of CodeIgniter
Let’s take a peek at some of the features that make CodeIgniter so remarkable. The list below is not comprehensive, but it provides you a sense of what to expect when working with CodeIgniter.
- Footprint is minimal.
The CodeIgniter framework’s source code is around 2MB in size. This makes learning CodeIgniter and its functionality simple. It’s also easier to create and manage.
2. Exceptionally quick
Users want applications that are fast and responsive. If you’ve dealt with some of the more recent frameworks, you’ll realize that they load in less than a second after installation. You can load CodeIgniter in less than 50 milliseconds on average. When you work with the CodeIgniter framework, you don’t have to invest as much time optimising as you would with another framework.
3. Coupled loosely
The built-in elements are typically implemented on their own, without any need for additional elements. This makes maintenance and upgrades simple.
4. MVC (Model View Controller) Architecture
The Model-View-Controller architectural design is being used by the PHP CodeIgniter framework. When working with web applications, it is industry normal protocol. Data, business logic, and display are all compartmentalized in MVC.
5. Documentation is excellent:
The framework is highly documented, and CodeIgniter has a lot of interesting books, tutorials, and responses to forum questions. This means that whatever problem you’re experiencing, chances are someone has already faced it, solved it, and the solution is waiting for you.
Application-specific built-in components: As we progress through the tutorials, you’ll notice that CodeIgniter includes components for sending email, database management, session management, and more.
Out of the box, CodeIgniter includes some libraries and helpers. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, or if you want to customise an existing function. Then, by creating libraries, helpers, packages, and so on, you may do so quickly. In CodeIgniter, you can also construct a REST API.
7. Short learning curve:
Anyone who is familiar with PHP will find CodeIgniter to be simple to master. The user can learn CodeIgniter in a short period of time and start constructing professional CodeIgniter applications.
