Just like you, we have read post after post comparing Laravel to CodeIgniter.
Naturally, you’d feel that comparing the framework you want to transition to, to the one you already know, is the most rational thing to do. Which it is.
But there’s a problem you likely keep encountering.
A subjective problem
The trouble you’ve likely seen with a lot of the posts out there talking about Laravel vs CodeIgniter is that they don’t really tell you about the differences between the two frameworks, in a way that really allows you to make an informed decision on which is best. They tend to be quite subjective in their descriptions and don’t really spell out the differences in any concrete detail.
To know which framework is better on an objective level, you need to have a play by play of each important feature that you’ll be using day in day out.
You’ll need to know things like…
How to route to a view in Laravel vs CodeIgniter….
How to create databases and tables in Laravel vs CodeIgniter…..
How storing and retrieving data happens in Laravel vs CodeIgniter….
Among other key things.
To truly grasp the power of Laravel and be convinced once and for all about making the switch, you’ll need to see these differences side by side.
That’s what this post series aims to help you do.
In each post, I will compare the key day in, day out features within the two frameworks and put them against each other side by side, so that you are able to get the full objective picture.
Learning a new framework can be a huge investment of time. And for a web developer like you, time sometimes really can be money.
So we hope this post helps to illuminate you enough that you can make a clear decision on whether or not Laravel is worth putting the energy into. We think it is. But we’ll let the below posts do the talking.
