Quick usage

As a quick example, we set an entry and retrieve it. The retrieval can be done with a static method on the Hoa\Registry\Registry class and also using the hoa:// protocol.

Hoa\Register\Registry::set('foo', 'bar');

 * Will output:
 *     string(3) "bar"
 *     string(3) "bar"


The hack book of Hoa\Registry contains detailed information about how to use this library and how it works.

To generate the documentation locally, execute the following commands:

$ composer require --dev hoa/devtools
$ vendor/bin/hoa devtools:documentation --open
