what are the differences between libraries, helpers and plugins in CI ?

libraries: Utility classes where object state is important (payment gateways, authentication, etc.)

helpers: Collections of related functions (not classes) that do repetitive tasks (strings, arrays, etc.)

plugins: A simple way to drop in third party classes. Typically, the whole process is called with a single wrapper function.
