Filters

Filters allow you to control which properties or methods are generated. For example, you can use promoteMethods () and the filter() operator to only promote methods of a class that have a certain character string:

.houdini.php
<?php
namespace Houdini\Config\V1;

use YourNamespace\YourDynamicClass;

houdini()->overrideClass(YourDynamicClass::class)
    ->promoteProperties()
    ->filter( NameFilter::contains('foo') );

Here we passed a NameFilter to the filter() method. This will enable autocompletion for private and protected properties of YourDynamicClass, but only if those properties contain the string foo.

You can see the complete list of name filters supported by typing NameFilter:: and PhpStorm will autocomplete them for you inside .houdini.php. Another way to view them is to look at the list of filters.

Using multiple filters (with logical AND)

You can pass multiple filters to the filter method, and they will be combined implicitly with logical AND - so all of the filters passed must apply for the method or property to be added:

.houdini.php
<?php
namespace Houdini\Config\V1;

use YourNamespace\YourDynamicClass;

houdini()->overrideClass(YourDynamicClass::class)
    ->promoteProperties()
    ->filter(
       NameFilter::contains('foo'),
       NameFilter::startsWith('get')
    ));

This will promote any property that matches both filters, so only properties that start with get and also contain foo somewhere in the name will be promoted.

You can also combine multiple filters explicitly with the AllFilters class. This isn’t useful though unless you are combining filters with each other.

Using multiple filters (with logical OR)

If you want to combine filters with logical OR, you can use AnyFilter::create() method and pass both filters in:

.houdini.php
<?php
namespace Houdini\Config\V1;

use YourNamespace\YourDynamicClass;

houdini()->overrideClass(YourDynamicClass::class)
    ->promoteProperties()
    ->filter( AnyFilter::create(
       NameFilter::contains('foo'),
       AccessFilter::isPrivate()
    ));

Here we used the AnyFilter class to combine filters, and the AccessFilter class to limit it to private properties. This will promote any property that matches either filter, so all private properties, and any filter that matches foo.

Combining filters with logical OR and logical AND

You can use AllFilters and AnyFilter classes together to filter by arbitrary complicated conditions:

.houdini.php
<?php
namespace Houdini\Config\V1;

use YourNamespace\YourDynamicClass;

houdini()->overrideClass(YourDynamicClass::class)
    ->promoteProperties()
    ->filter( AnyFilter::create(
       NameFilter::contains('foo'),
       AllFilters::create(
         AccessFilter::isPrivate(),
         NameFilter::contains('bar')
       )
    ));

This will promote for autocompletion any property that contains foo, or is both a private property and contains the string bar.
