I’ve used CodeIgniter in several PHP projects, and I love it (if I have to write PHP). I’m a big fan of the included Database Library.

I write a lot of server side scripts in PHP for work (crons, etc). I really hate ADODB’s syntax, so I set out to extract CodeIgniter’s database library.

CodeIgniter Database Library is the result of my hacking. I haven’t tested this very thoroughly, but I plan to with any PHP scripts I write in the future.
