Better readability; less code is better code

Often, I add static methods to some classes in order to improve readability when I instantiate a new class; the ability of chaining methods directly to the constructor, without the unnecessary parenthesis boilerplate, would remove the need for that.

This is good to have.

Properties are useful for exchanging (reading and writing) single values. Properties are good for data binding, etc.

With this RFC we can implement:

  • Validation
  • Trigger events
  • Call methods if there is more to do

Update: About the $field I am not sure. Having a separate backing field can have some advantages.

With First-class callable syntax available since 8.1, it would now be possible to write it as below, which is much better then string names of functions:

$result = "Hello World"
    |> htmlentities(...)
    |> str_split(...)
    |> fn($x) => array_map(strtoupper(...), $x)
    |> fn($x) => array_filter($x, fn($v) => $v != 'O');

For me, the most important argument is that the pipeline pattern is a tried and tested pattern, that this RFC builds upon. A couple of examples:

This RFC adds syntax to make using these kinds of pattern much more convenient.

On top of that, there's the argument that multiple modern languages support a pipe operator:

Finally, I've had numerous occasions where a pipe operator would simplify my own code — I have more than a handful real life cases where this would be useful.
