CodeIgniter 4 Proposed Roadmap

Big changes are proposed and done in a way to not only prepare CodeIgniter for future development but most importantly, retain their elegant, simple, fast and flexible features.

Suggestions and possible coding assistance to speed the release of Version 4.0 are available on their Forum

An Alpha version of the core is expected in less than a year. I personally hope new developers join their team to reduce the workload and the release date.

That is wonderful but it sounds like they are proposing Laravel but placing the Code Ignitor name on top of it. Might as well just use Laravel. Only two developers… maybe four WOW that is nothing in comparison to many other projects…

CodeIgniter is a community driven project and accepts contributions of code and documentation from the community. These contributions are made in the form of Issues or Pull Requests on the CodeIgniter repository on GitHub.

I think the new CI 4.0 will be able to learn from the current competition, pick out the best features and develop a better Php Framework.

Php 7 minimum usage will be very helpful.

CI4 actually looks promising. When CI3 came out I was a heavy critique over its PHP 5.2 support, but with that out of the way I can actually see CI improving into a decent framework. Of course I dont think it will be ever on par with Symfony and ZF, but it should fit for some projects.

I highly doubt that and here is why. The people working on CodeIgnitor only really know Code Ignitor. How much experience have these individuals had using other Frameworks for which you say they are going pluck the *best features and improve on others. My guess is very little.

Rather sweeping statements :slight_smile:

As far as previous experience of other Framewaorks is concerned these GitHub statistics may be of interest:

bcit-ci / CodeIgniter (GitHub link)
8,471 commits
4 branches
18 releases
361 contributors

Have you any suggestions for the next version rather than making it a Laravel carbon-copy?

Nope, I think this is all a desperate attempt to keep the Code Ignitor brand relevant in a sea of more adequate solutions.
