CodeIgniter comes with an “Auto-load” feature that permits libraries, helpers, and models to be initialized automatically every time the system runs. If you need certain resources globally throughout your application you should consider auto-loading them for convenience.
The following items can be loaded automatically:
To autoload resources, open the application/config/autoload.php file and add the item you want loaded to the autoload array. You’ll find instructions in that file corresponding to each type of item.
Do not include the file extension (.php) when adding items to the autoload array.
Additionally, if you want CodeIgniter to use a Composer auto-loader, just set
TRUE or a custom path in application/config/config.php.
