Chris Hartjes' Blog:
10 Days Later - Early Impressions of CakePHP vs. CodeIgniter
November 05, 2007 @ 11:19:00

Chris Hartjes, after spending ten days (a week-ish) working with CodeIgniter, has posted some of his thoughts comparing the framework to one he likes just a bit more, CakePHP.

As loyal readers to my blog know, my employer has committed to using CakePHP. That's okay, I'm a big boy and can handle working with different things as clients (and bosses) demand. So, after maybe a week and a bit of working with CodeIgniter I thought I'd talk about it.

He's broken it down into a series of bullet-points to summarize the experience (there's explanations under each too):

  • Once you know one MVC framework, you know them all
  • CodeIgniter mixes OOP and functions
  • Lack of conventions makes Chris sad
  • CodeIgniter's User Guide Is Awesome
  • No built-in associative data mapping makes Chris sad
