$field->toStructure()

Converts a yaml field to a Structure object

$field->toStructure(): Kirby\Cms\Structure

Return type

Kirby\Cms\Structure

While the yaml method returns a simple associative PHP array for structured field content, the toStructure method gives you a full blown Kirby Collection which makes it possible to use Kirby's chaining syntax.

Example

Text file

Title: My page
----
Accounts:
  - name: Twitter
    url: http://twitter.com/getkirby
  - name: GitHub
    url: http://github.com/getkirby

Template

<h1>On the web</h1>
<ul>
  <?php foreach ($page->accounts()->toStructure() as $account): ?>
  <li>
    <a href="<?= $account->url() ?>">
      <?= $account->name() ?>
    </a>
  </li>
  <?php endforeach ?>
</ul>
