Intro:

This is a lightweight mobile device detection algorithm for CodeIgniter.

Installation:

You can either use http://getsparks.org to install via the spark installer. Visit http://getsparks.org/packages/mobiledetection/versions/HEAD/show to install it.

or

  1. Extract the archive you get from here.
  2. Put libraries/mobiledetection.php into your applications libraries diectory.

Usage:

If you've installed via the spark then add the following to your controller.

$this->load->spark('mobiledetection/x.x');

or

$this->load->library('mobiledetection');

if you've installed manually.

From there on call the following function to determine if your visitor is using a mobile device.

$this->mobiledetection->isMobile();

True is returned if they are, otherwise false is returned.
