I want to implement this third party class: What is the best way to do it?

Tried to implement it via SiteTreeExtension, but didn't get it running. Anyone the solution?

Thanks, Mario

I'd probably write a simple MobileDetect module for SilverStripe, using a SilverStripe wrapper class around the thirdparty Mobile_Detect class.

This wrapper would 'include' the thirdparty class, instantiate it and provide some methods to communicate with it to get the results you want.

Then you could work with it just like with any SilverStripe class, from whichever Extention or Controller you'd want

Yep, good idea:

Thanks for your help.

Best, Mario
