Reading all about PHP frameworks, CodeIgniter seems really nice in that I like it's speed and raw PHP-ness, but it really misses features that CakePHP has (ACLs, authentication,etc.). I originally thought that it would be ok to write the stuff i needed myself (and CodeIgnitier is definitely the DIY tool), but I'm really missing out on a pre-made thing like that. Is there a PHP-equivilant of Django, but not that extreme, like that provides an admin panel and some automagicness, but is still "flat-packed" and doesn't require command line like CodeIgniter does?
Or does anybody know a good module for CodeIgniter to add (1) an admin panel, (2) a login system and (3) a permissions system?
Or should I just shut up and write my own? (I was avoiding this not really because of effort but I'm not sure that I'll write it securely enough or use proper conventions)
Update: Or should I try and modify a pre-build CMS like PyroCMS to my needs as that is already has built-in authentication and permissions and admin panel, but might be unstable?
