GetSetGo Build Status

A dynamic setter-getter library for PHP 5.4+.

You can use methods like setFoo('bar') and getFoo(), which you DON'T have to create (in your class). GetSetGo will make these methods work for you automatically as long as you have a $foo property in your class.

It makes use of Traits, so using it is super simple, you don't have to extend any class, as you can extend a single class only, we don't force you to use ours. You can restrict to only getter only or you can specify a Type for property using annotations.

Installation

GetSetGo uses Composer to make hassles Go.

Learn to use composer and add this to require (in your composer.json):

"usmanhalalit/get-set-go": "1.*@dev"

Library on Packagist.

Usage

Just add this in your classes:

use \GetSetGo\SetterGetter;

Example:

Class MyClass{
    use \GetSetGo\SetterGetter;

    protected $foo;
}

Now use it as

$myClass = new MyClass;

$myClass->setFoo('bar');
echo $myClass->getFoo();

That's basically it.

Restrict Getter or Setter or Both

You can use annotation in you class property if you want to disable setter, getter or both using @setter and @getter annotation variables.

/**
 * We can't use setSomeProperty() anymore.
 *
 * @var
 * @setter false
 */
protected $someProperty;

/**
 * We can't use getSomeProperty() anymore.
 *
 * @var \stdClass
 * @getter false
 */
protected $someProperty;

/**
 * We can't use setSomeProperty() or getSomeProperty().
 *
 * @getter false
 * @setter false
 */
protected $someProperty;

Force a Type or Class

You can specify a type for the property using @var annotation variable, so setter will take only a value of this type, else it will throw an exception. The code below will work similar as public function setSomeProperty(stdClass $value){}

/**
 * Should be an instance of stdClass only.
 *
 * @var \stdClass
 */
protected $shouldBeStdClass;

/**
 * Should be an array only.
 *
 * @var Array
 */
protected $shouldBeArray;

/**
 * Should be a string only
 *
 * @var String
 */
protected $shouldBeString;

/**
 * Should be a number only.
 *
 * @var Number
 */
protected $shouldBeNumber;

/**
 * Should be an object only.
 *
 * @var Object
 */
protected $shouldBeObject;

Notes

GetSetGo assumes that you use proper camelCase. So name your properties like $pdoInstance (not $PDOInstance) and call setPdoInstance() method.
