Laravel 5 Collections: Adding an Element to the End of a Collection With push

The push method is the logical opposite of the prepend method and will push an item onto the end of the collection. The push method returns a reference to the original collection instance.

The push method modifies the collection instance it was invoked on.


1public function push(
2 $value

Example Use

The following code example demonstrates how to use the push method to add an item on the end of a collection:

1use Illuminate\Support\Collection;
3// Create a new collection instance.
4$collection = new Collection([
5 'I am first',
6 'I am second'
9// Push an item onto the collection.
10$collection->push('I am third');

After the above code has executed, the $collection variable would contain a value similar to the following output:

2 protected 'items' =>
3 array
4 0 => string 'I am first'
5 1 => string 'I am second'
6 2 => string 'I am third'

It should be noted that the push method cannot be used to set the key of the item that is being added to the collection.
