Simple and Lightweight Auth System for CodeIgniter

Ion Auth 2

The future of authentication

by Ben Edmunds

Redux Auth 2 had a lot of potential. It's lightweight, simple, and clean, but had a ton of bugs and was missing some key features. So we refactored the code and added new features.

This version drops any backwards compatibility and makes things even more awesome then you could expect.

Documentation

Documentation is located at http://benedmunds.com/ion_auth/

Installation

Just copy the files from this package to the corresponding folder in your application folder. For example, copy Ion_auth/config/ion_auth.php to application/config/ion_auth.php.

Relational DB Setup

Then just run the appropriate SQL file (if you're using migrations you can get the migrations from JD here: https://github.com/iamfiscus/codeigniter-ion-auth-migration).

MongoDB Setup

Integrate the following projects to enable MongoDB support in CodeIgniter:

CodeIgniter MongoDB Active Record Library - http://github.com/alexbilbie/codeigniter-mongodb-library/tree/v2
CodeIgniter MongoDB Session Library - http://github.com/sepehr/ci-mongodb-session  

Set $config['use_mongodb'] = TRUE; in the config file and then run the following command:

$ mongorestore sql/mongo

Usage

In the package you will find example usage code in the controllers and views folders. The example code isn't the most beautiful code you'll ever see but it'll show you how to use the library and it's nice and generic so it doesn't require a MY_controller or anything else.

Default Login

Username: admin@admin.com Password: password

Important

It is highly recommended that you use encrypted database sessions for security!

Optimization

It is recommended that you add your identity column as a unique index.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any problems.
