Cocoa (OS X) vs CodeIgniter: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cocoa (OS X) as "The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X". Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications. On the other hand, CodeIgniter is detailed as "A Fully Baked PHP Framework". CodeIgniter is a proven, agile & open PHP web application framework with a small footprint. It is powering the next generation of web apps.
Cocoa (OS X) and CodeIgniter can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Great community " is the top reason why over 2 developers like Cocoa (OS X), while over 72 developers mention "Mvc" as the leading cause for choosing CodeIgniter.
CodeIgniter is an open source tool with 17.4K GitHub stars and 7.72K GitHub forks. Here's a link to CodeIgniter's open source repository on GitHub.

I used CodeIgniter while working at KHM Travel Group. It was the system we used for an affiliate-based site called TravSearch, which I later replaced with a WordPress Multisite. I developed a .csv upload form to transfer all the information from the affiliate table of CodeIgniter to the user and options tables in WPMU.
CodeIgniter is the MVC framework used for the PHP coding. Also, validation criteria for (database) table fields are the provided by CodeIgniter, and signatures for others are derived from those.
It is super easy to do things in PHP using codeigniter. Used the MVC architecture to create different types of pages and modules.
Integrate with some code-igniter low-level modules through composer.
