Koriym.Loop is a PHP library that converts various iterable data sets, such as database result sets, CSV files, or any other iterable structures, into an entity list generator. This makes it easy to use in views by providing looping information such as isFirst, isLast, index, and iteration, similar to the loop processing found in template engines like Twig.


composer require koriym/loop


Basic Example

The following example demonstrates how to use Koriym.Loop with a simple User class and a result set:

class User
    public function __construct(
        public readonly int $id,
        public readonly string $name

// Database result sets or csv content
$resultSet = [ 
    ['id' => 1, 'name' => 'ray'],
    ['id' => 2, 'name' => 'bear'],
    ['id' => 3, 'name' => 'alps'],

/** @var Generator<Loop, User, mixed, void> $users */
$users = (new LoopGen)($resultSet, User::class);
foreach ($users as $user) {
    echo $user->name;

Loop information

Loop information can be accessed from the array keys, providing details such as whether the current item is the first or last in the list:

/** @var Loop $loop */
foreach ($users as $loop => $user) {
    echo match(true) {
        $loop->isFirst && $loop->isLast => "<ul><li>{$user->name}</ul>",
        $loop->isFirst => "<ul><li>{$user->name}",
        $loop->isLast => "<li>{$user->name}</ul>",
        default => "<li>{$user->name}"

Loop Properties

property type Description
isFirst bool Is first on the list?
isLast bool Is last on the list?
index int Loop count of 0 origin
iteration int Loop count of 1 origin


Dependent instances can be injected into the entity by specifying them as the third argument. Specify the key as the name of the parameter and the value as the instance.

$dependencies = [
    $varName => $insntance,
    'dateTime' => new DateTime(), // DateTime instance is injected
$users = (new LoopGen)($resultSet, User::class, $dependencies);

Iterator Support

Koriym.Loop supports iterators as well as arrays. Here's an example using a CSV iterator:

class Row
    public function __construct(
        public readonly int $id,
        public readonly string $name

// Retrieve contents of csv file as list<Row>
$csvIterator = new ogrrd\CsvIterator\CsvIterator($csvFilePath);
/** @var list<Row> $csvRowList */
$csvRowList = (new LoopGen)($csvIterator, Row::class);

foreach ($csvRowList as $loop => $row) {
    if ($loop->isFirst) {
        continue; // Skip header
    echo $row->name;

This library provides a flexible and convenient way to handle looping through result sets and other iterable data structures in PHP, with additional context information about the loop's state.
