The framework that you use to build your application will end up being the foundation of your program. Everything that your program does will revolve around how that framework works. Things like naming conventions, file paths and settings are dictated by the framework. But if you have chosen a good framework, like CodeIgniter (CI), you will be able to manipulate how that framework works and the tools it makes available to you by modifying it’s configuration information. In the first post I talked about application file structure. Now that the structure is solid I’m going to look at how I configure the framework so that it works the way I expect.
