php-helpers

Yet another package full of helper functions.

This is pretty much a personal dumping ground for little functions and classes I make which don’t fit anywhere else. Every now and again I extract a whole bunch of related functions into a package of their own.

A lot of the open source code I’ve written depends on this package, which is not a very good thing as it’s actually quite big, especially if you install all the dev dependencies (which composer does by default). So I’m currently (2013-06) in the process of extracting the bits I’m using into minimal packages as described above.
