I've looked through all of the CI documentation, and done some Googling of it, but I still can't quite seem to figure out how to create a configuration file for a custom library in codeigniter. If somebody could even just point me in the direction of where in the docs I could find my answer it would be greatly appreciated.
I am creating a library in CI that makes use of several database columns that can vary in name between applications, so I would like the names to be stored in a custom config file. Then I would like to be able to load these values in the construct of the library.
So my two questions are:
1.) How do I name the config file, and how do I name variables within that file so they don't overwrite any other config vars?
2.) How do I get the values from within my library?
When i have questions like this i like to look at other projects that already do this. We utilized
Tank_auth in almost all of our ci projects. This is a popular authentication library, which has its own custome config files
It just creates its own config file in
You could prefix your config items with your app name to ensure that they are unique
it then just loads it in the constructor:
