To add a third-party library in CodeIgniter, follow these steps:

  1. First, download the library you want to add to your CodeIgniter project. Make sure the library is compatible with CodeIgniter and is a CodeIgniter library or a PHP library that can be easily integrated with CodeIgniter.
  2. Once you have downloaded the library, copy the library files to the appropriate folder in your CodeIgniter project. Typically, third-party libraries are placed in the "application/third_party" folder or in a new folder created within the "application/libraries" folder.
  3. Next, create a new library file in the "application/libraries" folder to integrate the third-party library into your CodeIgniter project. You can name this file based on the library you are adding (e.g., My_library.php).
  4. In the library file you created, load the third-party library using CodeIgniter's loader class. You can use the "include" or "require" statement to load the library file or use CodeIgniter's loader class to load the library dynamically.
  5. Once the library is loaded, you can start using its functions and features in your CodeIgniter project by creating an instance of the library in your controllers or models.
  6. Make sure to include any necessary configuration or setup instructions for the third-party library in your CodeIgniter project to ensure it works correctly.
  7. Finally, test the integration of the third-party library in your CodeIgniter project to ensure it is working as expected and does not conflict with any existing libraries or code.


By following these steps, you can successfully add a third-party library to your CodeIgniter project and leverage its features and functionality in your application.
