This project provides a composer package with a front matter parser.

Installation

Run

composer require ergebnis/front-matter

Usage

This packages comes with an Ergebnis\FrontMatter\Parser interface and provides the following parsers:

YamlParser

With the YamlParser, you can test if a string has YAML front matter:

<?php

declare(strict_types=1);

use Ergebnis\FrontMatter;

$parser = new FrontMatter\YamlParser();

$unparsedContentWithoutFrontMatter = FrontMatter\Content::fromString('Hello, how are you today?');

$parser->hasFrontMatter($unparsedContentWithoutFrontMatter); // false

$unparsedContentWithFrontMatter = FrontMatter\Content::fromString(<<<TXT
---
page:
  title: "Hello"
  description: "Good to see you, how can I help you?"
---
TXT);

$parser->hasFrontMatter($unparsedContentWithFrontMatter); // true

With the YamlParser, you can parse a string, regardless of whether it has YAML front matter or not.

<?php

declare(strict_types=1);

use Ergebnis\FrontMatter;

$parser = new FrontMatter\YamlParser();

$unparsedContentWithoutFrontMatter = FrontMatter\Content::fromString('Hello, how are you today?');

/** @var FrontMatter\Parsed $parsedWithoutFrontMatter */
$parsedWithoutFrontMatter = $parser->parse($unparsedContentWithoutFrontMatter);

$unparsedContentWithFrontMatter = FrontMatter\Content::fromString(<<<TXT
---
page:
  title: "Hello"
  description: "Good to see you, how can I help you?"
---
TXT);

/** @var FrontMatter\Parsed $parsedWithFrontMatter */
$parsedWithFrontMatter = $parser->parse($unparsedContentWithoutFrontMatter);

var_dump($parsedWithFrontMatter->frontMatter()->data()->has('page.title')); // true
var_dump($parsedWithFrontMatter->frontMatter()->data()->get('page.title')); // "Hello"

❗ The YamlParser will throw an Ergebnis\FrontMatter\Exception\FrontMatterCanNotBeParsed exception when the front matter is invalid YAML and an Ergebnis\FrontMatter\Exception\FrontMatterIsNotAnObject exception when the front matter does not describe an object.

💡 The YamlParser returns an Ergebnis\FrontMatter\Parsed value object on success, regardless of whether the value has front matter or not.
