Import Laravel's Collections into non-Laravel packages easily, without needing to require the entire illuminate\support package, while also supporting older PHP/Laravel versions. (Why not pull illuminate\support in framework-agnostic packages)

It just installs illuminate/support on PHP < 7.3 or Laravel < 8 and illuminate/collections on PHP >= 7.3 or Laravel >= 8 and uses the same major versioning.

This package will get major version tags up to and including the next Laravel LTS, which will probably be Laravel 9 in January 2022!


Via Composer

$ composer require swisnl/illuminate-collections


Simply use Illuminate\Support\Collection as you normally would!
