A library of collection types in PHP

Getting Started

composer require jjware/collections


Collections can be instantiated from existing arrays or without any arguments. A simple example of using a collection would be:

use Collections\Collection;

$collection = new Collection([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]);

$firstOverThree = $collection->where(function ($item) {
  return $item > 3;

// $firstOverThree === 4

Collections implement the IteratorAggregate, ArrayAccess, Countable, Serializable, and JsonSerializable interfaces.

There are also specialized collection classes for functionality such as queuing:

use Collections\Queue;

$queue = new Queue([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]);

$next = $queue->dequeue();

// $next === 1

Or for stacking:

use Collections\Stack;

$stack = new Stack([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]);

$next = $stack->pop();

// $next === 5

The Collections\EnumerableExtensions trait can be used on any Traversable to give it a lot of collection-like functionality.
