Nearly every application in existence requires some form of configuration. After all, no two instances of the same app are exactly the same. The "tried and true" (read "quick and dirty") way of doing this has conventionally been with arrays. This works well for most basic configuration values of scalar types, however, sometimes it may be necessary to configure complex objects.
As a PHP developer I often find myself having to run executable files installed to a project via Composer (e.g.
psysh, etc.). These binary files typically reside in
vendor/bin relative to the root of a project and in order to run these binary files from the project root I would need to
cd into the
vendor/bin directory first or type out the relative path (e.g.
vendor/bin/php-cs-fixer fix) every time I wanted to run one of these executables.
