Examples of using Laravel Collections in Drupal
23rd August 2018
Since starting to work with Laravel as well as Drupal and Symfony, watching Adam Wathan’s Refactoring to Collections course as well as lessons on Laracasts, I’ve become a fan of Laravel’s Illuminate Collections and the object-orientated pipeline approach for interacting with PHP arrays.
I’ve also tweeted several examples of code that I’ve written within Drupal that use Collections, and I thought it would be good to collate them all here for reference.
I knew that you could specify a property like 'price' in Twig and it would also look for methods like 'getPrice()', but I didn't know (or had maybe forgotten) that @laravelphp Collections does it too.— Oliver Davies (@opdavies) June 20, 2018
This means that these two Collections return the same result.
