#Description This package facilitates parsing and reading configurations from ini files. To create a hierarchical ini file, the only thing to do is to write keys seperated by a delimiter (by default '.') to specify parent and child. For example: [application] title="title" db.username="username" db.password="123" You can also use a value by it's key in another configuration value: [application] url=http://localhost/my-app login=${url}/login Note: ${url} assumes *url* key is in the current section, it can be written like ${application.url}. If you want to refer to ${url} in another section (e.g. global), you should mention it as a prefix e.g. ${global.url}. If you are using multi-level configuration keys (e.g. application.config.db.username), write the root as prefix, e.g. ${*prefix*.variable}. #Features - Easy to use - Convenient Integration - Support for hierarchical data structure - Section inheritance - Array configs - Key-value binding #How to use Pass the ini configuration path to the *parse* method: $ini = PHProp::parse("path/to/ini"); If your scope delimiter is not '.', give your delimiter as the second parameter: $ini = PHProp::parse("path/to/ini", "/"); After getting the object, the username can be accessed easily: $ini->application->db->username or $ini['application']['db']['username'] To get the number of application's children: count($ini->application); See the samples for more.
