CodeIgniter Development Platform for Creating Web Apps

Posted · Category: Framework

FUEL CMS is a modular-based hybrid of a framework and a content management system. It’s developed on the popular CodeIgniter PHP web framework and allows you to create your models, views and controllers like normal and only use the CMS part when and if you need it.

FUEL CMS evolved out of the need for having a development platform that was a Framework first and a CMS second. CodeIgniter fit the bill as a lightweight PHP framework that didn’t try and do too much behind the scenes. It allowed them to cleanly structure our code and use MVC principles.

They developed it so it could be easily integrated into your existing projects allowing you to select where and how you want to use the CMS. The interface is highly customizable and easily extensible with modules.

    After install I think concrete5 is a much more intuitive product for customers.

  • 1. Installation is not easy
    2. Tree (structure) have critical bug!

    Sorry, this CMS is very unpolished…

    Success will be if the installation and use of CMS will be very simple and stable in their work!

    Good luck!

  • concrete5 is nice, and in place editing is well done, but integrating new custom theme is not easy out of the box.

  • Installation is as simple as creating the database and making changes to fuel/application/config/database.php. But publishing content need some reading, i think this is a promising cms

  • It’s good to see a CMS based on CodeIgniter.

  • CodeIgniter performs on the idea of MVC and it allows designers to efficiently create and change the applications based on the particular business specifications.
