Help Loading External Libraries

So i'm working in a project and i'm useing Phalcon's Multi so i can have a frontend and backend , but i can't get PHPMailer or any class to work !

I have included a namespace for the libraries as " Frontend\Libraries ", so in the Controller i just include it ( " use Frontend\Libraries\PHPMailer as PHPMailer " ), but when i init the class and vardump it nothing happens . I also had a classe that i made called Zipper, but that class just displayed the raw code after a " $this->zip " call inside the class .

$loader->registerNamespaces([
        'Frontend\Controllers'  => __DIR__ . '/controllers/',
        'Frontend\Models'       => __DIR__ . '/models/',
        'Frontend\Libraries'    => __DIR__ . '/library/',
    ]);

Controller

namespace Frontend\Controllers;
use Frontend\Libraries\PHPMailer\phpmailer as PHPMailer;

class RequestController extends ControllerBase
{

    public function SendmailAction()
    {

        $mail = new PHPMailer();
        var_dump($mail);

        # $this->view->setRenderLevel(View::LEVEL_ACTION_VIEW);
    }

}

This is the other class mentioned :

class zip
{
private $_files = [],
        $_zip;

public function __construct()
{
    $this->_zip = new ZipArchive;
}

public function add($input)
{
    if ( is_array($input) ) :
        $this->_files  = array_merge($this->_files, $input);
    else :
        $this->_files[]  = $input;
    endif;
}

public function save( $location = NULL )
{
    if ( count($this->_files) && $location ) :
        foreach($this->_files as $index => $file) :
            if ( !file_exists($file) ):
                unset($this->_files[$index]);
            endif;
        endforeach;

        if ( $this->_zip->open($location, file_exists($location) ? ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE : ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE ) ):
            foreach($this->_files as $file) :
                $this->_zip->addFile($file, $file );
            endforeach;
            $this->_zip->close();
        endif;
    endif;
}
}

Its better add namespace to you zipper class and place in library so you can autoload it

depends, are you PSR-4 or autoloading standard?

$loader = new \Phalcon\Loader();

$loader->registerClasses(array( 'Zip' => 'path/to/your/file.php' ));

$loader->register();
