When you want save the information of an object you can use the serialize function or even the json_encode function.

However, these functions may generate serialized strings that contain much more information than you actually need to save.

This class provides a more efficient solution for saving only the relevant information of an object. It uses reflection to determine the name of the getter functions.

This way the class can retrieve only the values of the relevant class variables to save. It returns an object representation with their values in the JSON format.

Furthermore, getter objects that return other objects can be also serialized recursively.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.




The package Serialize is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Automatic serialization of objects with getters

Getter functions that return objects will be make this class also serialized the referenced objects recursively.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.
