Identity Map

Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality Code Coverage Latest Stable Version

This package allows having "canonical objects".


Assuming "new Item(1)" will have id of "1":

$map = new IdentityMap(function ($item) {
    return $item->getId();

$item1 = new Item(1);
$item2 = new Item(1);
$item3 = new Item(2);

echo $map->get($item1); // Will return item1
echo $map->get($item2); // Will return item1
echo $map->get($item3); // Will return item3

That way you can make sure items with the same key are the same physical objects

The closure argument that use pass to the identity map, needs to return the "unique key" for each product.
