GetSet component provides the MagicGet and MagicSet traits that can be used to simplify and unify implementation of magic getter and setter.


Installation can be done through composer, just add slaxweb/getset package to your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "slaxweb/getset": "0.1.*@dev"


Usage of MagicGet and MagicSet traits is pretty simple and straightforward, you just need to use them in your class, and writing and reading of your otherwise inaccessible properties is available. Both the MagicGet and MagicSet traits will prepend an underscore (_) to the name of the requested property. If you wish to alter or disable the prepend, then your class that uses those traits must define the _getSetPrepend property with the value you wish to prepend to the requested properties.

If the requested property does not exist, then both traits will throw the \SlaxWeb\Exception\UnknownPropertyException exception.

Example usage:


class Foo
    use SlaxWeb\GetSet\MagicGet;
    use SlaxWeb\GetSet\MagicSet;

    protected $__bar = "";
    protected $_getSetPrepend = "__";

$foo = new Foo;

$foo->bar = "baz";
echo $foo->bar;
