CodeIgniter Wizard 2.0.7 has been released to fix a couple of reported bugs reported by active users of version 2.0.x soon after it was unveiled on 30 August 2022. With a large number new features added to the application, the time needed to showcase them increased more than ten-fold. Authentication & authorization, secure file uploads for the end user, automatic image resizing post-uploads, language localization and translation in the GUI with the ability to add unlimited number of languages and locale variations, are just to name a few of the new features.

Here is the first video prepared for this major update which demonstrates a new end-to-end process of creating a simple web application featuring demonstrations for not just some of the less known features like AJAX-based lazy loading of list views, but also new features like integrating authentication, authorization, and image file uploads with automatic image size shrinking.

Below is a summarized list of all the new significant features that came with version 2.x

  • Authentication and Authorization
    • Integrate Myth/Auth library to your CodeIgniter project
    • Automatically have login, registration, password reset forms, even editable user profile pages added.
    • Define which user group is authorized to access a specific module from the GUI
  • Language Localization
    • Localize your web application in a language other than English
    • Add multiple languages to your web app from within the GUI

    • Support for image uploads for jpeg, png, gif and web formats
    • Add non-image files as downloadable documents such as PDFs and MS Office files
    • Multiple file upload fields can exist on a single form and generated controller will handle all of them.
  • Improved Form Validation
    • Form validation is now even more user-friendly and good-looking.
    • Have each field provide its specific feedback

    • Improved Routes
      • Routes refactored in groups per module
      • Authentication routes are automatically added

    Great product to rapidly scaffold feature-rich PHP web applications. This is probably the only tool on the planet which shrinks images to a specific size after file uploads while maintaining other complex factors like form and file validation! Very cool!

      Glad you are content with the new features, Carrie. We truly appreciate your comments.
