How to Include/Use Composer Bootstrap in CodeIgniter?

I want to include/use bootstrap in all my controllers/views without having to load each css/js in each view file, so I have done this:

Installed Composer Bootstrap

composer require twbs/bootstrap


My Index Controller:

public function index() {
// Composer Autoloader
require VENDORPATH.'autoload.php';
require_once BASEPATH.'core/CodeIgniter.php';

echo '<div class="section jumbotron text-center">Yu in index son.</div>';
}


VENDORPATH = myhomefolder../vendor/


vendor/autoload.php

// autoload.php @generated by Composer

require_once __DIR__ . '/composer' . '/autoload_real.php';

return ComposerAutoloaderInit9d54f40b1177ed0ebd8d1d378ec06d06::getLoader();


/composer.json

{
"require": {
"twbs/bootstrap": "^3.3"
}
}


I don't know what to do now, I have searched all the web but it only says things about other packages or something not related and Im stuck in this right now, if someone in advance can help, I would appreciate, thank you.

Answer

First

create header and footer which consists of bootstrap css and js and put them into a templates folder in your views folder

In controller use them like this to every method:

public function index() {

  $data['title'] = 'home';
  $this->load->view('templates/bootstrap_header',$data);
  $this->load->view('index',$data);
  $this->load->view('templates/bootstrap_footer');
}
