A library to read/write values from/to objects and arrays.

It is similar to symfony/property-access, but is built in a more lightweight way and therefore has less sophisticated syntax.


  • Read properties from objects/arrays
  • Write properties from objects/arrays
  • Built-in support for camel-case getters and setters
  • Can be extended with your own access strategies


composer require scheb/property-access

How to use

$valueObject = ...; // Array or object

$strategies = [
    new \Scheb\PropertyAccess\Strategy\ArrayAccessStrategy(),
    new \Scheb\PropertyAccess\Strategy\ObjectPropertyAccessStrategy(),
    new \Scheb\PropertyAccess\Strategy\ObjectGetterSetterAccessStrategy(),

$accessor = new \Scheb\PropertyAccess\PropertyAccess($strategies);

// Returns the value or null
$accessor->getPropertyValue($valueObject, 'propertyName');

// Returns the modified value object or throws FailedSettingPropertyException
$accessor->setPropertyValue($valueObject, 'propertyName', 'newValue');

How to extend

To create your own access strategies, implement Scheb\PropertyAccess\Strategy\PropertyAccessStrategyInterface and pass in an instance of that class to the constructor argument $propertyAccessStrategies of Scheb\PropertyAccess\PropertyAccess.
