CodeIgniter vs Trailblazer: 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; Trailblazer: A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.
CodeIgniter and Trailblazer can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Mvc" is the top reason why over 72 developers like CodeIgniter, while over 3 developers mention "Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" as the leading cause for choosing Trailblazer.
CodeIgniter and Trailblazer are both open source tools. CodeIgniter with 17.4K GitHub stars and 7.72K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 GitHub forks.

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.
