Short Number Formatter for PHP (1000 to 1k; 1m; 1b; 1t)
<?php
// Converts a number into a short version, eg: 1000 -> 1k

Example Usage:
number_format_short(7201); // Output: 7.2k
Demo:

@havutcuoglu, @hayjay and @sandervanhooft you're most welcome guys!

@hassanamirkhan in your snippet if ($n > 0 && $n < 1000) { should be if ($n >= 0 && $n < 1000) { to include the case when $n = 0.

So:

/**
 * @param $n
 * @return string
 * Use to convert large positive numbers in to short form like 1K+, 100K+, 199K+, 1M+, 10M+, 1B+ etc
 */
function number_format_short( $n ) {
	if ($n >= 0 && $n < 1000) {
		// 1 - 999
		$n_format = floor($n);
		$suffix = '';
	} else if ($n >= 1000 && $n < 1000000) {
		// 1k-999k
		$n_format = floor($n / 1000);
		$suffix = 'K+';
	} else if ($n >= 1000000 && $n < 1000000000) {
		// 1m-999m
		$n_format = floor($n / 1000000);
		$suffix = 'M+';
	} else if ($n >= 1000000000 && $n < 1000000000000) {
		// 1b-999b
		$n_format = floor($n / 1000000000);
		$suffix = 'B+';
	} else if ($n >= 1000000000000) {
		// 1t+
		$n_format = floor($n / 1000000000000);
		$suffix = 'T+';
	}

	return !empty($n_format . $suffix) ? $n_format . $suffix : 0;
}

@sandervanhooft yep we can add $n >= 0.
But if you check ternary condition in return statement it is already handling $n=0 case.

I made an approach to use as a realtime facade in Laravel, but I've adapted it to be used in any project. Feel free to take a look here: https://gist.github.com/maurobaptista/1c7ec5e71bac9bd20137cd01d390bdaa

just use (new NumberFormatter('en_US', NumberFormatter::PADDING_POSITION))->format($count)

Division is more costly than multiplication, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4125033/floating-point-division-vs-floating-point-multiplication#answer-4125074

For better performance use multiplication where its possible.
