Turns methods of any non-final class that do not return anything into chainable, fluent interfaces.

Disclaimer

This is a joke. I made this library after an argument with the senior dev who doesn't like fluent interfaces. If you can think of a legitimate use for this library, I would like to know.

Installation

Using composer

//composer.json
{
    "require": {
        "badcow/fluent-interface": "dev-master"
    }
}

Basic Usage

Non fluent class

<?php
//sample_class.php

namespace Sour\Milk;

class FooBar
{
    /**
     * @var string
     */
    private $firstName;

    /**
     * @var string
     */
    private $lastName;

    /**
     * @return string
     */
    public function getFirstName()
    {
        return $this->firstName;
    }

    /**
     * @return string
     */
    public function getLastName()
    {
        return $this->lastName;
    }

    /**
     * @param string $firstName
     */
    public function setFirstName($firstName)
    {
        $this->firstName = $firstName;
    }

    /**
     * @param string $lastName
     */
    public function setLastName($lastName)
    {
        $this->lastName = $lastName;
    }
}

Create fluent proxy

<?php

use Badcow\FluentInterface\FluentInterface;

//Set the directory where to store the proxy classes
$fi = new FluentInterface(__DIR__ . '/Proxies');

//Create a proxy class. The second parameter forces the recreation of the file.
$proxy = $fi->create('Sour\Milk\Foobar', true);
$foobar = new $proxy();

//Class is now a fluent interface
$foobar->setFirstName('Sam')->setLastName('Williams');

echo $foobar->getFirstName() . ' ' . $foobar->getLastName();
