The package uses value objects to parse, serialize and build HTTP Structured Fields in PHP.

HTTP Structured fields are intended for use by specifications of new HTTP fields that wish to use a common syntax that is more restrictive than traditional HTTP field values or could be used to retrofit current headers to have them compliant with the new syntax.

The package can be used to:

  • parse and serialize HTTP Structured Fields
  • build or update HTTP Structured Fields in a predicable way;
use Bakame\Http\StructuredFields;

$field = StructuredFields\Item::from("/terms", ['rel' => 'copyright', 'anchor' => '#foo']);
echo $field->toHttpValue();              // display "/terms";rel="copyright";anchor="#foo"
echo $field->value();                    // display "/terms"
echo $field->parameters()['rel']->value(); // display "copyright"
