README

This package is abandonned. Consider upgrading to bentools/simple-dbal, which can handle PDO and Mysqli connections as well, and favors composition over inheritance.

MySqli Extended

A better experience of PHP MySqli.

Shortcuts

BenTools\MySqliExtended\MySqliExtended is a child class of \MySqli. It has several shortcut methods to fetch data :

  • sqlArray() -> fetch a multi-dimensionnal array, basically several rows in a table.
  • sqlRow() -> fetch an associative array, for example a row.
  • sqlColumn() -> fetch the 1st column as an indexed array.
  • sqlValue() -> fetch a specific value.
$cnx = new MySqliExtended();
$cnx->options(MYSQLI_OPT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT, 5);

$cnx->real_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASS, DB_NAME);

$query = "SELECT 'Bill' AS firstname, 'Gates' AS lastname UNION SELECT 'Tim' AS firstname, 'Cook' AS lastname";
$result = $cnx->sqlArray($query);

Output:
array (
  0 => 
  array (
    'firstname' => 'Bill',
    'lastname' => 'Gates',
  ),
  1 => 
  array (
    'firstname' => 'Tim',
    'lastname' => 'Cook',
  ),
)


$result = $cnx->sqlRow($query);
Output:
array (
  'firstname' => 'Bill',
  'lastname' => 'Gates',
)


$result = $cnx->sqlColumn($query);
Output:
array (
  0 => 'Bill',
  1 => 'Tim',
)


$result = $cnx->sqlValue($query);
Output:
'Bill'

Prepared Statements

Working with prepared statements is now easier than before :

// Before :
$query = "INSERT INTO `ceo` (firstname, lastname, years_in_company) VALUES (?, ?, ?)";
$stmt = $cnx->prepare($query);
$firstname = 'Larry';
$lastname = 'Page';
$years_in_company = 12;
$stmt->bind_param('ssi', $firstname, $lastname, $years_in_company);
$stmt->execute();

// Now :
$stmt = $cnx->prepare($query);
$stmt->sql(array(
    'Larry',
    'Page',
    12
));

// or directly :
$cnx->sql($query, array(
    'Larry',
    'Page',
    12
));

// or very shortly :
$cnx($query, array(
    'Larry',
    'Page',
    12
));

You no longer need to create variables, create references and create a weird type-hinting string, i.e. 'ssi'.

You can also use named parameters (like with PDO), that you can duplicate in the same query :

$query = "INSERT INTO `ceo` (firstname, lastname, years_in_company) VALUES (:firstname, :lastname, :years_in_company) ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE years_in_company = :years_in_company";
$cnx->sql($query, array(
    'firstname' => 'Larry',
    'lastname' => 'Page',
    'years_in_company' => 12
));

Easily work with prepared statements.

$query = "SELECT firstname, lastname FROM `ceo` WHERE firstname LIKE ?";
$result = $cnx($query)->sqlRow('bill%');

Ouput :
array (
  'firstname' => 'Bill',
  'lastname' => 'Gates',
)

$result = $cnx($query)->sqlRow('larry%');

Ouput :
array (
  'firstname' => 'Larry',
  'lastname' => 'Page',
)

$query = "SELECT firstname, lastname FROM `ceo` WHERE (firstname LIKE :firstname OR years_in_company > :years)";
$result = $cnx($query)->sqlArray(array(
    'firstname' => 'larry%',
    'years'      => 10
));

Output:
array (
  0 => 
  array (
    'firstname' => 'Bill',
    'lastname' => 'Gates',
  ),
  1 => 
  array (
    'firstname' => 'Tim',
    'lastname' => 'Cook',
  ),
  2 => 
  array (
    'firstname' => 'Larry',
    'lastname' => 'Page',
  ),
)
