Based on the instructions from Autocomplete in Eclipse for CodeIgniter 2, I tried to get it done with Aptana 3. It’s a little bit different, so here is what I did:
I modified the files from CodeIgniter like explained by TaggedZi.
Then I added a new user library. Open Aptana 3 and navigate to:
Window > Preferences > Aptana > Editors > PHP – Libraries
Click New user library, type in a name and select the path to the modified CodeIgniter library.
Deselect the library and close the Preferences.
Now open the properties of your actual project and go to PHP Buildpath > Libraries.
Uncheck “Use Project specified settings”and select the CodeIgniter library.
Done! Now Aptana 3 autocompletes the CodeIgniter 2 functions.

Thanks! This helped me get code completion working. Now if I can get XDebug playing codeigniter.
However, I have a problem when pasting the code in the Model.
The var $db makes my website look weird. No more CSS, no more db connection, …
Does anyone have the same problem?
Thank you very much!
just solved my problem.
I noticed the class DB was all upcase. So instead of var $db I put var $DB.
Everything working just fine now.
I don’t know why it does not trigger the same error in the controller…
