I recently started working on a PHP application and I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle configuration files and settings. I've been reading about namespaces in PHP and it got me thinking whether I can use namespaces for implementing namespacing in my configuration files or settings.
Basically, I want to organize my configuration files or settings into different namespaces, similar to how classes and functions are organized using namespaces. This way, I can avoid conflicts between different modules or components of my application.
I'm wondering if anyone has tried using namespaces for this purpose before and if it's a good approach. Are there any potential drawbacks or limitations I should be aware of? And if not namespaces, what are some alternative methods for achieving namespacing in configuration files or settings?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences on this matter. Thanks in advance!
