Speed up your development with CodeIgniter, a fast and powerful PHP web application framework. Author Jon Peck shows how to build a magazine cataloging system while describing how to use a MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework like CodeIgniter.
Starting with the what and why of CodeIgniter, Jon introduces key concepts such as the MVC pattern and libraries by demonstrating how to create static pages, then storing and displaying magazine info in a database. Advanced topics like classes and helpers are explored to validate user input, upload files, and much more. By creating a complete system, you'll have the foundation to build your own applications with CodeIgniter.
Helper files are similar to libraries in that they're a collection of functionality, but they're different in that they're not object oriented. Instead, they're procedural functions that perform one specific task with no dependence on any other function. Examples of helper function files include a date helper, form helper and URL helper. Helper files aren't loaded by default. So, if I wanted to use one, I'd have to explicitly load it from the controller using the helper method. Similar to loading libraries, I can either pass a string or an array as the argument. If I needed help getting a date, I just use the string date, this -> load -> helper, date.
If I wanted to load multiple helpers at once, I'd pass it in an array of strings like date, form, url. Now, let's revisit that form, but this time I'm going to use helpers.
