CodeIgniter Bootstrap kick starts the development process of the web development process by including Twitter Bootstrap into CodeIgniter. It also includes certain libraries such as AWS and Facebook in-case you are developing applications requiring those SDKs. So stop writing the same code over again and start working on your idea.
You will need a proper web server that can run PHP 5.0 or higher. I will also suggest using a MySQL database, though you also encouraged to use other libraries that support a better database like MongoDB.
You can load the several libraries included in CodeIgniter-Bootstrap. These libraries can be worked on an extended on through the directory
application/libraries. You will also need to edit the configuration files for these SDKs, located at
###Amazon Web Services PHP SDK
$this->load->library('aws'); $this->aws->load('s3'); $this->aws->s3->create_object('bucket', array());
More information on the actual SDK can by viewed here: http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSSDKforPHP/latest/
###Facebook PHP SDK
More information on the Facebook SDK is on: https://github.com/facebook/php-sdk
$this->load->library('mongo_db'); $this->mongo_db->where_gte(); // not a finished code

##Styling your CSS and HTML
By convention, you want to write your HTML documents in the views. They are located at
application/views. In order to load those views, your controller has to then include the view (including the header and footer view).
In order to edit your styles, you should be editing
assets/css/custom.css. All your images should go into
assets/js/custom.js. By default,
custom.js are included in the
view/include/header.php. You should insert proper lines into this file to include your other resources.
