Senior Software Developer
I have been using Codeigniter for PHP applicaton development since about 2012.
For rapid development and deployment, Codeigniter is hard to beat. In environments where the application does not have a proper user interface (cron jobs, etc.) the logging functionality and error handling features of Codeigniter are a boon.
In modern applications where connection to varied third-party APIs are critical, Codeigniter makes adding SDKs simple through Composer.
CodeIgniter enables test-driven development, which allows me to use an incremental testing approach while developing a website.
