Helper


Огляд

Phalcon\Support\HelperFactory offers support methods that manipulate arrays, files, JSON, numbers and strings. The factory replaces the Phalcon\Text component, offering the same functionality and more.

<?php

use Phalcon\Support\HelperFactory;

$helper = new HelperFactory();

The methods are available either by calling newInstance() on the factory object with the relevant name of the helper class, or calling the helper class directly as a method on the helper factory. The factory acts as a service locator, caching the objects to be reused if need be, in the same request.
