Setting Up Codeigniter 2.0.2 in Netbeans

Code igniter is getting intelligent in each release. The New version doesnot need to have the base_url path setup in application/config/config.php, It automatically guesses the path. However i recommend to set it up after your project is uploaded into a production server.

Step 1
Download Codeigniter from

Step 2
Create a new PHP project in netbeans.

Step 3
Extract the downoaded files into a temporary folder, and copy all files/folders and paste them into the files tab in Netbeans (Left top), there will be a default nbproject folder which should be untouched.

Step 4
create a new PHP file called ci_autocomplete.php inside the nbproject folder, copy and paste the following lines,

* @property CI_DB_active_record $db
* @property CI_DB_forge $dbforge
* @property CI_Benchmark $benchmark
* @property CI_Calendar $calendar
* @property CI_Cart $cart
* @property CI_Config $config
* @property CI_Controller $controller
* @property CI_Email $email
* @property CI_Encrypt $encrypt
* @property CI_Exceptions $exceptions
* @property CI_Form_validation $form_validation
* @property CI_Ftp $ftp
* @property CI_Hooks $hooks
* @property CI_Image_lib $image_lib
* @property CI_Input $input
* @property CI_Language $language
* @property CI_Loader $load
* @property CI_Log $log
* @property CI_Model $model
* @property CI_Output $output
* @property CI_Pagination $pagination
* @property CI_Parser $parser
* @property CI_Profiler $profiler
* @property CI_Router $router
* @property CI_Session $session
* @property CI_Sha1 $sha1
* @property CI_Table $table
* @property CI_Trackback $trackback
* @property CI_Typography $typography
* @property CI_Unit_test $unit_test
* @property CI_Upload $upload
* @property CI_URI $uri
* @property CI_User_agent $user_agent
* @property CI_Validation $validation
* @property CI_Xmlrpc $xmlrpc
* @property CI_Xmlrpcs $xmlrpcs
* @property CI_Zip $zip

class Controller {};

* @property CI_DB_active_record $db
* @property CI_DB_forge $dbforge
* @property CI_Config $config
* @property CI_Loader $load
* @property CI_Session $session

class Model {};


This will activate Netbeans autocomplete feature for Codeigniter.

Thats It!!! You can now create your Controllers etc.
