  • Design Decisions: Why use final classes
    2 projects | | 1 Dec 2022
    Making a class "final" is always a bad decision IMO. You would never know how will other people use your library. For example, we used JMSSerializerBundle and wanted to extend DateHandler to make it not to throw exceptions if a date string is invalid. But the class is final. So we had to just copy-paste it :(

    JMS Serializer: This library allows you to (de-)serialize data of any complexity. Currently, it supports XML and JSON.
  • Yet another Data-Transfer-Object package

    Only took a very brief look, but it looks nice. I like that the DTO class isn't required to extend anything, and that it seems to be for real DTOs used for actual transfer of data between systems - not 'local dtos'. It feels like this might be more comparable to something like schmittjoh/serializer rather than spatie/data-transfer-object.
