So you want to use composer in your next Codeigniter Project?
Well here’s how to do it:
1. Download and install Codeigniter
2. CD to project directory and install Composer
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
3. Create a composer.json file in your project root and define dependencies
4. Install Dependecies
php composer.phar install
This will create a vendor directory in your root folder of your project.
5. Add autoload.php to your Codeigniter’s index.php before require_once BASEPATH.’core/CodeIgniter.php’;
Thats’s it. Now you can use your newly installed libraries in CI. Have fun!
