Metadata is a library for class/method/property metadata management in PHP

Overview

This library provides some commonly needed base classes for managing metadata for classes, methods and properties. The metadata can come from many different sources (annotations, YAML/XML/PHP configuration files).

The metadata classes are used to abstract away that source and provide a common interface for all of them.

Usage

The library provides three classes that you can extend to add your application specific properties, and flags: ClassMetadata, MethodMetadata, and PropertyMetadata

After you have added, your properties in sub-classes, you also need to add DriverInterface implementations which know how to populate these classes from the different metadata sources.

Finally, you can use the MetadataFactory to retrieve the metadata:

<?php

use Metadata\MetadataFactory;
use Metadata\Driver\DriverChain;

$driver = new DriverChain(array(
    /** Annotation, YAML, XML, PHP, ... drivers */
));
$factory = new MetadataFactory($driver);
$metadata = $factory->getMetadataForClass('MyNamespace\MyObject');
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
