CodeIgniter vs MATLAB: What are the differences?

CodeIgniter: 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; MATLAB: A high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

CodeIgniter belongs to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack, while MATLAB can be primarily classified under "Languages".

"Mvc" is the top reason why over 72 developers like CodeIgniter, while over 8 developers mention "Simulink" as the leading cause for choosing MATLAB.

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.

According to the StackShare community, CodeIgniter has a broader approval, being mentioned in 261 company stacks & 105 developers stacks; compared to MATLAB, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 23 developer stacks.

Node.js
Laravel
and
CodeIgniter

Hi, We are thinking to rebuild a website and need your suggestion on which platform to choose from NodeJs, Laravel & CodeIgnitor. Since it's an education base website and there will be multiple functionalities like the use of graphics, video, animation and off-course forms for lead generation. Please advise us which tool to use to build the website considering load-time, server security, code vulnerability, etc.

Node.js is great but if I had a choice for something like this I would pick Elixir and Phoenix. They have LiveViews and channels which be one step up then the other 3 plateforms. It will also scale better and respond faster. Last will probably far less code as well.

I would suggest you to pick the right stack for the right purpose. My suggestion would be to go for Microservices approach and break your app into smaller pieces according to the type of functionality like you mentioned above. E.g if you would be expecting the high traffic on you platform, then Node.js can be used as the endpoint there to handle that traffic. Normal form processing can be done in Laravel but I would not suggest codeigniter as managing code is difficult there.

So this way you can decide do architecture you app and can use the best of the feature from all the languages. Even it would be easier for you to manage your app based on the functionality and team who will be working on that. Hope you would like my suggestions.
