Is CodeIgniter dying? Seeking New Owner for CodeIgniter.
October 2nd, 2013, 08:18 PM
many software projects have changed owners. That doesn't mean the project is dead. Even if EllisLab doesn't find an "official" successor, CodeIgniter could still live on as a fork.
Personally, however, I've been rather disappointed by the code I've seen. CodeIgniter may be great to use, but there's a lot of legacy stuff, security issues and bad practices behind the scenes. I think it's no match for modern frameworks like Symfony.
So this may indeed be a good opportunity for moving on.

What would be the benefit for someone to invest in this? And how much would they need to put down? They have a lot of upgrating to do.

you say CI is dead but you are still using it? upgrade to either Laravel or FUELPHP, they are "upgrade" of CI and are awesome!

I read that article 2 days ago.
Currently I have done +40 sites for clients and all are running under CI. I can't instantly stop using CI. Uness there is a magic button that I click and changes everything to Zend.
Definitly will check Fuel as soon as I get a chance. This has been the busiest time of year.

i know, I know. but you were considering moving from CI long time ago if i remember correctly and even if you have at least ONE site it will be hard but at no time have i seen you mention moving to alternative, it was more an inquiring question
