Add methods to determine whether a variable is blank or present.

Inspired by Ruby on Rails.

Idea

This package is a hackathon product. Idea was to port the Ruby on Rails methods blank and present to PHP.

PHP has the empty method, but more often I need to check whether a variable is not empty. That's why a notEmpty method is available as well.

See the list below to compare the different behaviour of these methods.

Source

Mirror https://github.com/pixelbrackets/not-empty/

Usage

See tests/demo.php.

use Pixelbrackets\NotEmpty\Blank;
use Pixelbrackets\NotEmpty\NotEmpty;
use Pixelbrackets\NotEmpty\Present;

# Is a string empty? → Use PHPs »empty«
if (empty('')) { … }

# Is a string not empty? → Use »empty() === false«
if (empty('acme') === false) { … }

# → …or use »notEmpty« instead
if (NotEmpty::notEmpty('acme')) { … }

# A strings with whitespaces is blank → use a combination of conditions
if (is_string('   ') && empty(trim('   '))) { … }

# → …or use »blank« instead
if (Blank::blank('   ')) { … }

# → use »present« to check the opposite of »blank«
if (Present::present('acme')) { … }

💡 If you want to use the methods as global functions (blank() instead of the namespaced Pixelbrackets\NotEmpty\Blank::blank()) then install the »global« branch, using composer require pixelbrackets/not-empty:dev-global.
