Gonzalo Ayuso's Blog:
Using PHP classes to store configuration data
January 10, 2011 @ 11:57:39

Gonzalo Ayuso has a new post to his blog today looking at how he uses PHP classes to store configuration information for easier retrieval.

In my last projects I'm using something I think is useful and it's not a common practice in our PHP projects. That's is the usage of a plain PHP's class for the application's configuration. Let me explain it. Normally we use ini file for configuration. [...] There are many standard options. Why I prefer a different one then? I like plain PHP classes because the IDE helps me with autocompletion. The usage is quite simple.

His example uses a standard class to store the configuration values, one that can be loaded into a project and lets you call the configuration values statically. He gives two examples of how this is helpful in a standard IDE with autocompletion.
