A lightweight, modern addition to CodeIgniter 3. The heart of Bonfire Next.
NOTE: This repo is no longer being maintained. If you would like to take it over please email me at [email protected]
Based on the CodeIgniter 3 PHP framework, Sprint provides the essential running start to get you to the fun part of building your web applications. It provides additional utilities and workflow enhancements to stock CodeIgniter. In the process, it helps to modernize the code a bit.
Sprint is intended to be the heart of Bonfire Next, though that integration has not happened yet.
I found that for a number of my recent projects, the current Bonfire code was too much, too opinionated and fully developed. And the clients were requesting for me to use the Foundation CSS Framework since that's what they use in house, and Bonfire was built on Bootstrap. Besides, sometimes Bonfire is just too big of an application for your projects.
While working on Bonfire Next and an in-progress book on modernizing CodeIgniter and it's practical usage, I realized that I could reform the current slimmer codebase that I've been using and make it the core of Bonfire Next. The goal is to have basic functionality and workflow in place in Sprint, and to build on that in Bonfire.
So Sprint is basically CodeIgniter, but with more cowbell.
NOTE: This is currently in a Beta-release state. What's that mean? It means that no new features are expected, but is a time for bugs to get hunted down and stomped out. If you use the project and find changes to the code or docs, pull requests are accepted :) Preferably with tests in place, though I won't be enforcing that at this point.
I take security very seriously in Sprint and strive to create the most secure package that I can. If you have located what you believe to be security issues, please contact me at [email protected] with the details, instead of posting them as an issue on the repo or forums. That only releases the security hole to potential attackers before it's had a chance to be fixed.
Installation instructions can be found in the docs source here on GitHub.
The following is being built for the initial release:
Sprint will not include much in the way of a built-in admin area, though it will have default views that can be incorporated into your own areas.
It will not include a method for working with assets as much of this can be handled easier and with higher performance on a per-project basis, often using something like CodeKit.
Docs are included in the repo itself, and it comes with a pretty nice documentation system built on simple Markdown-formatted files.
To view the documentation, download the code, and point your browser to
/docs. The rest should be working fine, but please let me know if you hit any snags!
To view the docs prior to downloading, you'll have to browse the files in the repo for now. Before too long, we'll have a site setup for it. But the current focus is on the initial release getting whipped into shape.
