Using Traits

Traits in PHP 5.4.png

This code has me excited. Most XenWord classes reuse the same code for calling the options in WordPress database.

PHP:
class Post {
    protected $options;

    /**
    * Post constructor.
    */

    public function __construct() {
        $this->options = get_option( 'xenword_options' );
    }

Traits were introduced in PHP 5.4 and so repetitive code can be moved into a trait and called with the use statement. The following video shows the replacement of the above code with use Options.


It's a great way to speed up coding. In the future, new options can also be added to the trait file.
