Full Version: Load custom config file?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I made a custom config file with some general settings I want to access in my controllers.

When I make a new controller and load the config file I can access the variables I set:

$customvalues = new \Config\Custom();
echo $customvalues->myvalue;

How can I load the config file so that I dont have to initiate a new instance in every class of the controller but like in codeigniter 3 one would do in a constructor function?
You can load it in the base controller. It would be available for all your controllers. You can also get a shared instance with the config() function like described on this page of the user guide:
Or you can load in the Common.php file.
