Justin Carmony's Blog:
PHP Itch to Scratch Object Notation
April 14, 2011 @ 13:42:33

In a new post to his blog Justin Carmony talks about a few "itches" he's wanted to scratched when it comes to features of the PHP language - in this post it's the notation that's used surrounding the use of objects.

At the end [of Marco's post to his blog], he states it ultimately boils down to find a better way to bring features build downstream back upstream. So I thought I would do my part by first my blogging about a few "itches" I'd love to see scratched. My first itch would be some form of Object Notation for PHP.

He talks about the notation method that Javascript has always had and how it can help to make objects more flexible by not forcing their creation through a method/argument interface. He offers one potential solution - using arrays for settings values - but notes that it could be more trouble than it's worth in the implementation. He proposes a new sort of notation instead, one that allows the passing of something similar to the Javascript JSON-ish definition of values and callbacks as anonymous functions.
