This is a collection of known design patterns and some sample codes on how to implement them in PHP. Every pattern has a small list of examples.

I think the problem with patterns is that often people do know them but don't know when to apply which.

Installation

You should look at and run the tests to see what happens in the example. To do this, you should install dependencies with Composer first:

$ composer install

Read more about how to install and use Composer on your local machine here.

To run the tests use phpunit:

$ ./vendor/bin/phpunit

Using Docker (optional)

You can optionally build and browse the documentation using Docker for Mac, Windows or Linux.

Just run:

$ docker-compose up --build

Go to http://localhost:8080/ to read the generated documentation.

If you want to localize your documentation you can pass the locale as an argument to the docker build:

$ docker-compose build --build-arg language=de
$ docker-compose up

Patterns

The patterns can be structured in roughly three different categories. Please click on the 📓 for a full explanation of the pattern on Wikipedia.
