CodeIgniter User Guide Version 1.6.1


Welcome to CodeIgniter

CodeIgniter is an Application Development Framework - a toolkit - for people who build web sites using PHP. Its goal is to enable you to develop projects much faster than you could if you were writing code from scratch, by providing a rich set of libraries for commonly needed tasks, as well as a simple interface and logical structure to access these libraries. CodeIgniter lets you creatively focus on your project by minimizing the amount of code needed for a given task.

Please read the Introduction section of the User Guide to learn the broad concepts behind CodeIgniter, then read the Getting Started page.
