Jonathan Snook's Blog:
CodeIgniter vs. CakePHP
March 20, 2007 @ 09:24:00

In a new post today, Jonathan Snook takes a look at two of the more popular PHP frameworks (CodeIgniter and CakePHP), comparing and contrasting what it's like to work with each.

I almost fear putting this kind of post together as it's bound to pull the fanatics (in the negative sense of the word) out of the woodworks. Right off the bat, let me just say that I've tried to be as fair and honest in this assessment and I've tried to keep it just to the facts while interjecting what my preferences are.

I'm pitting these two frameworks against each other but there really isn't a clear winner. Each has its strengths and weaknesses and ultimately falls to what your preference for certain features might be.

He starts with the "why?" of it all before even getting into the code examples. When he does, it's all about models, views, the out-of-the-box features, auto-loading, and documentation. As he mentioned before he started, though, there's not a "winner" in this comparison. His personal choice, though, is CakePHP for simplicity's sake.
