In Detail

CodeIgniter (CI) is a powerful open-source PHP framework with a very small footprint, built for PHP coders who need a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured web applications. CodeIgniter is an MVC framework, similar in some ways to the Rails framework for Ruby, and is designed to enable, not overwhelm.

This book explains how to work with CodeIgniter in a clear logical way. It is not a detailed guide to the syntax of CodeIgniter, but makes an ideal complement to the existing online CodeIgniter user guide, helping you grasp the bigger picture and bringing together many ideas to get your application development started as smoothly as possible.

This book will start you from the basics, installing CodeIgniter, understanding its structure and the MVC pattern. You will also learn how to use some of the most important CodeIgniter libraries and helpers, upload it to a shared server, and take care of the most common problems. If you are new to CodeIgniter, this book will guide you from bottom to top. If you are an experienced developer or already know about CodeIgniter, here you will find ideas and code examples to compare to your own.

Improve your PHP coding productivity with this guide to the powerful and popular CodeIgniter framework.

Approach

This book takes a step-by-step approach, presenting the main features of CodeIgniter in a systematic way and explaining them clearly. It is packed with examples, ideas, and screenshots to help you master this great framework. The code examples are very practical so you can even use them in your own projects. By following this book, you can use CodeIgniter in the best possible way and maximize your learning.

Who this book is for

This book is for developers who are new to CodeIgniter. Basic skills in PHP and MySQL are required, but only rudimentary object-oriented knowledge is needed.

If you're looking for a better way to develop PHP applications, or want to find out more about the CodeIgniter framework as a viable option for one of your own projects, this book will help you.
