Web development with Codeigniter backend and frontend

Design Company and web development with Codeigniter. From our agency, we create backend and frontend with Codeigniter. It is a PHP framework that makes it easier to use the MVC (Model View Controller) mechanism for creating control panels.

Codeigniter, is one of the best framework that exist today for the creation of web applications. It was created to be used in version 5 of PHP. It makes extensive use of the orientation that focuses on this version. For the version of Codeigniter we use from PHP 5.3.3 up to version 7. We also use Laravel for web development in our agency. Y CakePHP for web applications.

The Codeigniter Framework was created by the company EllisLab. Today it remains at the head of the project, with a goal focused on improvements that facilitate the practice of software development by a Codeigniter expert web programmer.

Even though Codeigniter, can be used for different types of work not focused on the web, this framework was created specifically to improve the development of web applications. It offers tools to strengthen and speed complex applications.

Codeigniter operation

In itself, Codeigniter does not intend to create something new, it refuses concepts and works already executed and inserts them in Codeigniter to be used by the user.

One of those concepts is that which refers to the integration of one of the framework Most known ORM within those that were made for PHP called "Doctrine", which is responsible for communicating with the database, offering supreme control over them without taking into account that it is talking about MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and other engines. The vast majority of SQL statements are not made by the programmer but by Doctrine.

With the Doctrine framework, everything related to data models can be managed. Each model file is really a class, and they are commonly referred to as "entities." So, you just have to take care of creating the entities and Doctrine will generate all the necessary databases and tables. Everything is achieved by placing a simple command on the command line. To enter the data, an object called “Entity Manager” must be used from the controller.

Another example that can also serve is the inclusion of framework Twig Twig is a powerful template engine that makes code separation PHP and HTML achieving remarkable improvements. Create in this way a wide variety of options and a good order and execution of the project.

With the YAML language, which is a direct competence of XML, you can have a huge amount of configuration completely separate from the code. Improve clarity and response. If you do not want to work with YAML you can use the configuration files with XML or PHP.

Benefits of Codeigniter for developers

With Codeigniter you have the instructions of the console, which are called "Tasks", tasks that allow the execution of commands in the terminal. Tell Codeigniter to do what is necessary for what is required and requested. It is the complete generation of the vital programs to do ABMs, work that is cumbersome for some programmers since this means that a lot of code must be applied for the execution of tasks in different tables.

Another very important benefit is that Codeigniter has a sub framework to work with forms. In this way a class focused on objects of the HTML form is made and once they are made they are only shown and executed.

This indicates that the HTML form is not designed, but programmed using the mechanisms of the framework.

So you will be able to keep together all your application forms in one place with the validations carried out on the server. With Codeigniter you can implement valid objects quite practical and powerful to improve the security of the data placed by users.

Web security with Codeigniter

With Codeigniter there is also a large amount of support to shield the website. In this way it manages to keep us unconcerned with malicious attacks that exist today such as SQL Injection, XSS or CSRF.

These virtual attacks can already be avoided, making Codeigniter handle all of them. Attention can be diverted to attacks that are dedicated to creating misuse of business or bad business decisions.

This achieves a web page where everything is located where it has to be. The maintenance and correction of errors is easier and above all effective.

Codeigniter has a large number of libraries, tools and aids. It allows you to make web applications quickly, coding the web in a traditional way.

Solutions to programming problems with Codeigniter

Many of the conflicts that can be faced were analyzed for later solution. Other programmers allowed focusing on new unforeseen events that may arise, solving the main problems.

We are only showing some of the concepts that Codeigniter offers to the user without mentioning others that are equally important as are the integration of the PHP Unit. To make unit tests and create functions in an easy and practical way. Injection of dependencies, the easy use of assets to improve our images, CSS, JavaScript among others.
