Arrayy: A PHP array manipulation library. Compatible with PHP 7+

The next examples are using the php array manipulation library “Arrayy” which is using generators internally for many operations.

StringCollection::create(['Array', 'Array'])->unique()->append('y')->implode(); // Arrayy

map: transform all values in the collection

StringCollection::create(['foo', 'Foo'])->map('mb_strtoupper'); 

// StringCollection['FOO', 'FOO']

filter: pass all values to the truth test

$closure = function ($value) {
    return $value % 2 !== 0;
IntCollection::create([1, 2, 3, 4])->filter($closure); 

// IntCollection[0 => 1, 2 => 3]

reduce: transform all values into a new result

IntCollection::create([1, 2, 3, 4])->reduce(
    function ($carry, $item) {
        return $carry * $item;

// IntCollection[24]
