Introduction

This library provides a way of avoiding usage of constructors when instantiating PHP classes.

Installation

The suggested installation method is via composer:

$ composer require doctrine/instantiator

Usage

The instantiator is able to create new instances of any class without using the constructor or any API of the class itself:

1<?php use Doctrine\Instantiator\Instantiator; use App\Entities\User; $instantiator = new Instantiator(); $user = $instantiator->instantiate(User::class);
