Ardillo Loop is an implementation of the ReactPHP Event Loop interface.

For documentation, please refer to the ReactPHP loop API reference: as well as our examples:

Note: Unlike the ReactPHP loop, Ardillo Loop cannot be restarted, i.e. once stopped, the implementing application is expected to prepare for termination. Given the nature of Ardillo applications (native desktop utilities), this should no be a limitation, however this can affect one's approach to unit testing.

This library also offers a ReactApp class which extends the base Ardillo App class in such fashion that the actual event loop management is abstracted away from the application logic. This allows for a more natural approach to writing Ardillo applications, where the application logic is not bound to the event loop implementation.


Before proceeding, make sure you have installed and enabled the Ardillo extension.

The recommended way to install Ardillo Loop is via Composer:

composer require ardillo/loop
