Special Agent is a FuelPHP package which uses php-mobile-detect to determine whether a device is mobile or not - this is largely to negate the use of Browscap, which has proven to be entirely unreliable as of late.
What it does
This package does three things.
- Firstly, it overwrites the default
Agent::is_mobiledevice()method to use php-mobile-detect.
- Secondly, it overrides the is_mobiledevice method:
Agent::is_mobile()- merely shorthand for
- Thirdly, added all the remaining methods from the class
Clone it into fuel/packages:
git clone --recursive git://github.com/rob-bar/special_agent fuel/packages/special_agent
After doing that, ensure you're always loading it in your config.php file, like so:
'always_load' => array( 'packages' => array( 'special_agent' ) )
And you're done. Easy as cheese.
