Do you have to manually type the following lines all the time?
If you suddenly can’t remember the name of a library or you have just started learning Codeigniter and want to explore all commands, you might probably have to find an IDE with autocomplete facility.
Fortunately for us, there is an amazing package for sublime text that allows Autocomplete. In this post, I will show you how to set up Sublime Text to have autocomplete facility for Codeigniter.
- Download Sublime Text 2 Completions for CodeIgniter and Unzip.
- There will be a file named PHP-codeigniter.sublime-completions.
You will have to copy this file to two locations (to be sure). One is the sublime packages folder and the other is as according to the Github page.
- First, open sublime text and go to Browse Packages as shown below:
A folder with the following path will open:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Packages
…\Sublime Text (n)\Packages
- Copy the (PHP-codeigniter.sublime-completions) file and paste the following folder which you can find using:
..\Sublime Text (n)\Packages\User
Next, open up Sublime Text and you will be able to use Autocomplete. for example, see the following image.
That’s it! You now have autocomplete facility within Sublime Text. Please note that with changes to codeigniter in future, this post might become obsolete. If for some reason, it does not work, then let me know in comments.
I hope this guide helped you.
