Tomas Votruba:
Hidden Gems of PHP Packages: SymfonyFinder and SplFileInfo
Aug 14, 2018 @ 10:55:09

Tomas Votruba has continued his series covering the "hidden gem" packages he's found in his PHP development. In this latest post he focuses on two new pieces of functionality: the Symfony/Finder package and SplFileInfo.

The series on not-so-well-known packages that might save your ass more than you think continues. Today we look on files as objects.

He starts by providing some examples of where he makes use of the Finder package and how it makes working with files easier. He then shows how to get the package installed, a simple example of how to use it and some of the functionality that's included. He also details the SplFileInfo functionality that comes with the package and what information it can provide about a file.
