I decided to continue with the series about CodeIgniter, but now I’ll be writing about more specific topics. In this part, I’ll explain how to use the form_validation library to validate form and ensure the correct data reach the database. Even though it’s an specific topic, I’m going to continue using the same application from previous posts.
We finally got to the end of the series Creating a CodeIgniter App. We will conclude our Simple Task Board app with the development of the tasks section. This includes the creation of tasks for each project, the exhibition of these tasks in the dashboard and, of course, the exhibition of these tasks in a agile like task board.
With this post we get to the penultimate part of this series about CodeIgniter. We will continue the development of Simple Task Board with the projects part, inserting and updating the project information. We will update the dashboard as well to show the projects.
In part 4 of this series I’ll be showing you how to create the user maintenance for our Simple Task Board app. It will include editing, adding and removing users. Everything will be done using CodeIgniter and I’ll explain the model, controller and views necessary to execute this task. Furthermore, jQuery will be added as well as some CSS.
Last week we did our install procedure but we didn’t quite installed our app. The Template class, which includes the header and the footer was missing. That’s what we are going to prepare today. Besides that, we are also going to create our login routines as well as build our menu, which will be used in all pages of our application.
In this post I’ll show how to set up your CodeIgniter installation properly and start our Task Board app. For this purpose we will also define two database tables and a simple installation procedure. This post is part of the “Creating a CodeIgniter App” and continues what started with the Introduction.
Last week I wrote about a small CodeIgniter app called Simple Task Board. It is capable of managing multiple projects and tasks, but it is very simple, specially now that it is in the first version. So I thought it would be a good idea to explain how it was done. This explanation will occur in a series of posts, starting today with an introduction about CodeIgniter and about this specific application.
