->> Array Collections

For more advanced tasks on arrays we provide Array Collections.

Laravel Collections, an elegant wrapper around arrays with a multitude of handy methods, significantly streamline array data manipulation. Similarly, the Array Collection within our framework, built upon Laravel Collections, offers a rich set of functionalities for array manipulation. You can utilize methods from Laravel Collections on our Array Collection.


$arr = ['Foo', 'Bar', 'Baz'];
$arraycollection = C::Arrays()->from($arr);
$arraycollection->contains('Bar'); // true

Leverage the full breadth of Laravel Collections' methods as outlined in the official documentation to enrich your array manipulation capabilities within the framework.

->> Conclusion

The Arrays module, coupled with the robust Array Collection, empowers developers with a suite of tools for efficient array manipulation, embodying a blend of simplicity, efficiency, and the richness of functionalities carried over from Laravel Collections.
