It’s been a while since I’ve posted but wanted to let you know about a newish framework that I have come across and so far seems very promising.
There’s been a lot of excitement about frameworks recently following on from the success of Ruby on Rails. Having played with Rails a little I decided I wanted to explore some of the frameworks for PHP rather than learning a completely new language.
A few days ago I came across Code Igniter and much of my New Years Day was spent working through the excellent documentation and the tutorial videos. This framework seems very lightweight compared with the others I’ve tried and installed easily on my testing server.
One thing that I like to have when I’m trying something new like this is a paper based manual that I can scribble note on – as this wasn’t available I have made a quick PDF of the documentation. It’s not perfect but it will do for now. You can download it here if anyone else would like to use it.
