Build Status

What is CodeIgniter?

CodeIgniter is a PHP full-stack web framework that is light, fast, flexible, and secure. More information can be found at the official site.

This repository holds the pre-alpha code for CodeIgniter 4 only. Version 4 is a complete rewrite to bring the quality and the code into a more modern version, while still keeping as many of the things intact that has made people love the framework over the years.

This is pre-release code and should not be used in production sites.

More information about the plans for version 4 can be found in the announcement on the forums.

Repository Management

We use Github issues to track BUGS and to track approved DEVELOPMENT work packages. We use our forum to provide SUPPORT and to discuss FEATURE REQUESTS.

If you raise an issue here that pertains to support or a feature request, it will be closed! If you are not sure if you have found a bug, raise a thread on the forum first - someone else may have encountered the same thing.

Before raising a new Github issue, please check that your bug hasn't already been reported or fixed.

We use pull requests (PRs) for CONTRIBUTIONS to the repository. We are looking for contributions that address one of the reported bugs or approved work packages.

Do not use a PR as a form of feature request. Unsolicited contributions will only be considered if they fit nicely into the framework roadmap. Remember that some components that were part of CodeIgniter 3 are being moved to optional packages, with their own repository.


We are not accepting contributions from the public until a stable enough base has been formed, and our plans fleshed out and things settle down a little bit. At that point, we will welcome your comments and help creating the best framework for our community.

Please read the Contributing to CodeIgniter section in the user guide
