Kohana looks better…

Kohana PHP Framwork

  • Kohana is exclusively for PHP 5 while Code Igniter supports from PHP 4 and up. Kohana is strinctly OOP with benefits like visibility protection, automatic class loading, overloading, interfaces, abstracts, and singletons.
  • Code Igniter supports only $POST arrays and no GET, Kohana lets POST and GET arrays live together in harmony with the same tight security of Code Igniter.
  • Kohana’s directory structure makes a lot more sense. See, Code Igniter has one directory at the root called System. In this directory is a bunch of subdirectories of which your application directory is a part of. Kohana went and put the application directory with the system directory on the root path.
  • But Kohana is lacking in Documentation, UserBase, CodeBase, CI is having few publish booked from Wrox and Oriliy. From Hiring point of view, Developer are more in CI but we can trained them for Kohana.

CI is ahead because of following main reasons

  • Nice Documentation
  • Books Available
  • Experienced and Trained Resources Available
  • Stable
