PHP Frameworks and my confusionOctober 28, 2010 | No Comment | Tags: CodeIgniter, PHP, PHP Framework
In this days, I am working on a project lonely. In this project that called OEDS (I don’t know why boss chose this name!), I should design user interface and also write the backend PHP code. The database is ready and fill by data that come from another section of this project which has written before. I should fetch data from database and show in my UI, properly. In some parts the business may be a little complicated because users have to be enabled to sign-in and do some activities.
Anyway, the server-side must develop by PHP and I, that have never worked by any PHP framework, decided to work more professional! By reason of this, I started to search for finding the best solution. First of all I wanted to develop by WordPress but I found some difficulties and gave it up. Then I looked into the large number of PHP frameworks, Zend, CodeIgniter, Yii, Kohana and … . I really confused to select one of them, all seemed good! But CodeIgniter was a little attractive. Because it is very similar to pure PHP, the way that I have been coding up to now. After consultation with Mr Eliaderani, who is one of the PHP experts that I know, and getting his approval, I started to develop my project by CodeIgniter.
Its structure and logic is so simple and easy to use, also it is very faster than Zend. In future posts I will write about CodeIgniter in detail but now I want say finally I started developing by a PHP framework!
