Is there something specific you want to know?

CodeIgniter is a framework that allows you to build web applications using PHP. You can use any IDE or code editor you like.

Ah, codeigniter follows the MVC (Model View Controller) pattern. Where you usually handle the storage and the fetching of knowledge in models. The page or data that will be presented to the users in views and the 'glue' or logic between the two in controllers. Codinghorror has a pretty good explaination on the general pattern in a blogpost. If you aren't familiar with MVC check it out!

You may not like my answer but the tutorial in the codeigniter docs is probably the fastest way to get started and know where to write what code.

Thanks for the valuable info ! I get the meaning of MVC, I'll check out the tuto, though.
