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.
If you use this to further your career, or put money in your pocket, and would like to support the project please consider a moral license.

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
You can also copy the entire directory structure into your third_party/ folder. For example, copy everything to /application/third_party/ion_auth/
CodeIgniter Version 2 Compatibility
CodeIgniter v2 requires the class file names to be lowercase. In order to support this follow the standard installation procedures and then either rename the following files or create symlinks
models/Ion_auth_model.php => models/ion_auth_model.php controllers/Auth.php => controllers/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).
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.
