RfcCodex

There are some notes on PHP RFCs, why some were declined, and what others might need for them to be implemented.

The purpose of these documents is to avoid information from being lost and to try to avoid conversations needing to be repeated multiple times on PHP internals.

Things still being discussed

Annotations

Briefer closure syntax

Class scoping improvements

Consistent callables

Enums

Generics

Method overloading

Standardise core library

Ternary right associative

Union types

TODO

Async

Structs

Explicit defaults

Tuple returns

Ideas that overcame their challenges

Co- and contra-variance

Contributing

Please read the contributing guidelines before writing your 4,000 word novelella on why some RFC really should pass.

Disclaimer

I reserve the right to be as opinionated as I feel like when commenting on RFCs; I'm not going to attempt to stay 100% neutral when talking about RFCs that I consider to be either dumb or bad for PHP.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
