Episode 36 - A Rapid Intro to Delegator Factories

08/15/2017 , 2m, 56s

In this episode, come get a quick introduction to a very powerful feature in Zend ServiceManager, called Delegator Factories.

Delegator Factories are:

pretty much, a wrapper around a real factory: it allows us to either replace the actual service with a delegate or interact with an object produced by a factory before it is returned by the Zend\ServiceManager.

They’re a very powerful feature that Matthew Weier O’Phinney put me onto while I’ve been writing the new book Zend Expressive Essentials. I was stand-offish at first, but have been blown away by the power and flexibility that they offer.
