Location of JSON file within CodeIgniter for use as eventSource with fullCalendar jQuery plugin

I am trying to generate some JSON to store information about calendar events for use in the fullCalendar jQuery plugin.  The plugin documentation provides that the calendar is able to fetch events from a JSON feed:

$('#calendar').fullCalendar({

    eventSources: [

        // your event source
        {
            url: '/myfeed.php', // use the `url` property
            color: 'yellow',    // an option!
            textColor: 'black'  // an option!
        }

        // any other sources...

    ]

});

Open in new window


My question is:  Where does the myfeed.php file go if I am using CodeIgniter?  If I put the file off the root of the site as in `http://mysite/myfeed.php` then I am not able to query the database, presumably because the file is outside of the CodeIgniter application folder.  If the myfeed.php file needs to be inside the CodeIgniter application folder, then where does it go and how do I modify the URL parameter above to reflect the new location?

Thanks.

The answer to this question I discovered by realizing that it was not a "view" that needed to be loaded, but rather it was simply a calculation, or method, if you will. All I had to do was to move the calculation code that was in myfeed.php and put it into a controller and then a method. After I did that, it was simply a matter of updating the url parameter as follows:

$('#calendar').fullCalendar({
eventSources: [
{
    url:  '/myController/myMethod',  <-- THIS WORKS !!
    color: '#DBBE00',     
    textColor: '#000000' 
}
],    
theme: true,
header: {
left: 'prev,next today',
center: 'title',
right: 'month,agendaWeek,agendaDay'
},
editable: false
});

Happy to report that I managed to figure this one out myself.
