Hi!

What are the differences between package and third party?

In CI 2.0, there is a new folder "third party" but there is nothing about a package folder or module folder.

By reading this item: Package VS module, I know now that module is for HMVC which is not yet supported by CI.

I also want to know the role of the CI 2.0 new folder "core" in application folder?

/application/core/ folder allows you to extend the core classes in CI system.

"third_party" is just an example of a package folder. You can rename it "packages" or whatever you want. See Application "Packages" here.

Thanks for these answers! Ok I think I understand third_party now: third_party = packages, it's just a set of library+helper+core+config!

HMVC is another story, it is a set of model+view+controller?

Some Codeigniter-built CMS (PyroCMS, openblog, ionize, etc.) all use HMVC, is there a codeigniter common library to implement HMVC?

How do you set up the package feature outside of an app, in order to share its resources within different applications ?
