:mega: After ~11 years I've decided to archive this project. Sadly I don't have the time nor the resources to maintain it anymore. Thank you for all the PRs, ideas and discussions around patterns over all the years!

This is a collection of known design patterns and some sample codes on how to implement them in PHP. Every pattern has a small list of examples.
I think the problem with patterns is that often people do know them but don't know when to apply which.
You should look at and run the tests to see what happens in the example.
To do this, you should install dependencies with
$ composer install

Composer on your local machine here.
To run the tests use
You can optionally build and browse the documentation using Docker for Mac, Windows or Linux.
$ docker-compose up --build
Go to http://localhost:8080/ to read the generated documentation.
If you want to localize your documentation you can pass the locale as an argument to the docker build:
$ docker-compose build --build-arg language=de $ docker-compose up
The patterns can be structured in roughly three different categories. Please click on the :notebook: for a full explanation of the pattern on Wikipedia.
