Nitro is a really easy to use, very customizable, and extensible ORM for CodeIgniter. It's pure PHP, which means you won't have to install any commandline tools to run it, just one mapping file (or as many as you like), which is as simple as defining a PHP array, and let Nitro create the classes and manage the relations.
