Today I googled for “better than codeigniter” which produced only 2 results and one of them pointed me to Joomla Framework being better than CodeIgniter.
I am building a CMS with different modules (static files, product catalog, shopping cart etc) and was curious how am I doing comparing to Joomla. Right now I’m just developing the admin interface and I’m using a modified version of CodeIgniter
Here are some findings:
- no cacheing, no loging, no output compression
- multilanguage application
- pentium IV 2gb RAM
My CMS & Framework
Page generated: edit form for a product
Included files: 30
Total execution time: 0.13secs
Page generated: edit form for an article
Included files: 118
Total execution time: 0.38sec (without the framework inclusion… for some reason I couldn’t include the benchmark class before the framework inclusion)
Obviously joomla is more feature-reach but 0.38secs/request seems a bit too much.
I would like to find how is your codeigniter application performing.
If you have some figures for other frameworks (drupal, symphony, cake) it would be great.
