use Shudrum\Component\ArrayFinder\ArrayFinder;

$arrayFinder = new ArrayFinder([
    'level_1' => [
        'level_2' => [
            'level_3' => 'value',
        ],
    ],
]);

$myValue = $arrayFinder->get('level_1.level_2.level_3');
// OR
$myValue = $arrayFinder['level_1.level_2.level_3'];

To install this package, you can simply use composer:

composer require shudrum/array-finder

Methods

get($path)

You can get a value following a path separated by a '.'.

use Shudrum\Component\ArrayFinder\ArrayFinder;

$arrayFinder = new ArrayFinder([
    'a' => [
        'b' => [
            'c' => 'value1',
        ],
        'value2',
    ],
    'value3',
]);

$myValue = $arrayFinder->get('a.b.c'); // value1
$myValue = $arrayFinder->get('a.0'); // value2
$myValue = $arrayFinder->get(0); // value3

If the path is null, all the content will be returned.

set($path, $value)

You can add a value to a specific path separated by a '.'. If the nested arrays does not exists, it will be created.

use Shudrum\Component\ArrayFinder\ArrayFinder;

$arrayFinder = new ArrayFinder();
$arrayFinder->set('a.b', 'value');

$arrayFinder->get(); // ['a' => ['b' => 'value]]

changeSeparator($separator)

If the default separator (.) does not fit to your needs, you can call this method to change it.

use Shudrum\Component\ArrayFinder\ArrayFinder;

$arrayFinder = new ArrayFinder([…]);

$myValue = $arrayFinder->changeSeparator('/');
$myValue = $arrayFinder->get('a/b/c');
