SitePoint PHP Blog:
Repository Design Pattern Demystified
June 02, 2014 @ 09:12:40

The SitePoint PHP blog has a new post today that hopes to "demystify" the Repository design pattern with an overview of its structure and ow your code can put it to use.

What is the Repository Design Pattern? To put it simply, it is an implementation of a brokering layer between the application and a data source. Neither party needs to be be aware of the other to perform their respective jobs which allows us to have a decoupled architecture which in turn helps in the scaling of the application in the big leagues without having hard dependencies.

He includes an example case where the Repository pattern might be used, to "proxy" requests to multiple types of data sources from many different inventory systems. He includes some pros and cons of using the functionality too, like a positive separation of concerns but a negative additional abstraction layer. The remainder of the post includes a code example basing it on a Laravel framework installation. He creates a simple Repository class and shows how to extend it with a layer specific to one city type.
