Phil Sturgeon:
Arguing on the Internet
December 28, 2012 @ 10:51:39

In his latest post Phil Sturgeon shares some thoughts in response to this article from Shawn McCool about the "death of CodeIgniter", citing a few specific points.

I have referenced Shawn McCool's blog a few times, "Why CodeIgniter is Dead" and people are wondering why I argued so hard against it back in May but then gave CodeIgniter such a hard time in my last article. For the record I'm not team CodeIgniter or team Laravel, I'm a PHP user who has some opinions, and some of those opinions change over time - which is fair enough.

He goes through several of Shawn's points including:

  • Comments about best practices in CI (or lack of)
  • Modularity/design pattern use
  • The implementation of modules/sparks
  • The community contributions to the Reactor project
  • Dropping PHP4 support

Phil also notes that, just because something isn't making significant progress, it doesn't mean it's dead in the water:

Dead insinuates being closed right down. Repo removed, or just nothing is ever tagged again. Where CodeIgniter sits is closer to Smarty. Smarty is still active and has it's last stable release 2 months ago. It just hasn't changed much in years and probably never will.
