Custom stringifiers

Stringifier library is extensible, you can create your own stringifiers and use them with the Stringify class.

use Respect\Stringifier\Stringifier;
use Respect\Stringifier\Stringifiers\CompositeStringifier;
use Respect\Stringifier\Stringify;

$compositeStringifier = CompositeStringifier::createDefault();
$compositeStringifier->prependStringifier(new class implements Stringifier {
    public function stringify(mixed $raw, int $depth): ?string
    {
        if (is_object($raw) && method_exists($raw, 'toString')) {
            return $raw->toString();
        }

        return null;
    }
});

$stringify = new Stringify($compositeStringifier);

echo $stringify->value(new class {
    public function toString(): string
    {
        return 'Hello, world!';
    }
});
// Hello, world!
