I was wondering if anyone could help me with creating a custom attribute in PHP. I'm currently working on a project and need to add some extra information to certain elements in my code. From what I understand, custom attributes can help achieve this.
I've already done some research and found that custom attributes are not natively supported in PHP like they are in HTML, but I believe there might be a way to simulate them. I'm hoping someone here could provide me with an example or guide me in the right direction to get started.
To give you a bit more context, let's say I have an array of products, and each product has some basic attributes like name, price, and description. However, I also have some additional information related to each product that I want to store, like the product's popularity rating or the number of reviews it has received. I don't want to modify the existing attributes or create a whole new class just for these additional details, so I thought custom attributes might be a good solution.
I'm open to alternative suggestions or any advice you may have. I appreciate any help you can provide.
