Idea = CodeIgniter + stuff to make ideas easier to prototype
I built this with John Mangino. More to follow.
It's a prototyping platform for PHP developers.
Stuff that lives in Idea
Idea is built on top of a lot of great projects. Here's a list:
- CodeIgniter 2.0.0 - the best Web framework I've ever used: nothing gets out of your way like CodeIgniter
- HTML5 Boilerplate - if you're gonna do HTML5, get a head start, thanks to Paul Irish
- SimpleTest 1.0.1 - unit testing for PHP
Great features that live in the box:
- Highly-optimized functions for reading/writing global options - Thanks in large part to the WordPress codebase
- A generic caching mechanism that stores data in databases or memcached
- A command line interface - Execute controller actions and run unit test cases from the command line
