Manage your file system easily, through php

FireFS is a library allowing you to write/read/delete files and folders of your file system, safely and easily.

It can be used for web applications as well for console applications, without any requirements.



use ElementaryFramework\FireFS\FireFS;

// Create a new file system instance at the given path
$fs = new FireFS("./app"); // /root/var/www/htdocs/app/

// Check if the path "/root/var/www/htdocs/app/images/" exists
if ($fs->exists("images")) {
    // Change the working directory to the images folder

    // Create a new file in the working directory
    $fs->mkfile("./logo.png"); // /root/var/www/htdocs/app/images/logo.png

    // Read file from the file system root path
    $logo = $fs->read("logo.png"); // /root/var/www/htdocs/app/logo.png

    // Write into the created file
    $fs->write("./logo.png", $logo); // /root/var/www/htdocs/app/images/logo.png

    // Delete the old file
    $fs->delete("logo.png"); // /root/var/www/htdocs/app/logo.png

// Change the working directory to the file system root path

// Create a "blog" directory
$fs->mkdir("blog"); // /root/var/www/htdocs/app/blog/
