CodeIgniter is a great lightweight PHP framework for building MVC based web applications. It’s what powers most of my online endeavours, including this site. CodeIgniter prioritises simplicity by providing just the essentials and avoiding bloat. What it lacks in features though, it makes up in extensibility (as any good framework should).
I’ve made ample use of this extensibility to add functionality I found myself using in multiple places. I’m sharing a few of these extensions here in the hope that others might find it useful.
They’re all being used under production, with the latest version of CodeIgniter and PHP 5, so they’re hopefully bug-free.
