A simple package that abstracts away the process of connecting to a database using PDO and interacting with the connection.
All code is written using PSR1 and PSR2 guidelines.


Via Composer

$ composer require emmanix2002/database-adapter


We start by creating an instance of the class; it provides a utility create() method that takes in the settings as an array and fills in defaults where needed.
It is possible to change the defaults by calling the setDefault() static method.

$config = ['host' => 'localhost', 'user' => 'user', 'password' => 'password', 'schema' => 'schema_name'];

$adapter = Emmanix2002\MySqlAdapter::create($config);
// OR
$adapter = new Emmanix2002\MySqlAdapter('host', 'schema_name', 'user', 'password');

$record = $adapter->selectOne('SELECT * FROM `Users` WHERE `user_id`=?', 21134);

Usage: defaults

use Emmanix2002\MySqlAdapter;

MySqlAdapter::setDefault('host', 'default_hostname');
MySqlAdapter::setDefault('schema', 'default_schema');
MySqlAdapter::setDefault('user', 'default_user');
MySqlAdapter::setDefault('password', 'default_password');

$adapterDefault = MySqlAdapter::create();
// create an adapter using the defaults

$adapter = MySqlAdapter::create(['host' => 'another_hostname']);
// equivalent to new MySqlAdapter('another_hostname', 'default_schema', 'default_user', 'default_password');

Usage: Querying

There are a few methods that help with querying, they are:

  • exec()
  • selectAll()
  • selectOne()

exec() should be called directly for all queries that do not return an actual response i.e. every query excluding SELECT statements. It is called by both select*() methods, but it's much easier using them for SELECTing as opposed to calling exec() yourself. exec() uses prepared statements on all queries passed to it.
Below are examples:

$sql = 'SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE `user_email`=? AND `user_status`=?';
$record = $adapter->selectOne($sql, 'username@example.com', 1);

// it is also possible to do the same like so:
$args = ['username@example.com', 1];
$record = $adapter->selectOne($sql, ...$args);

// both will return the same value

exec() always returns a value; depending on the arguments passed:

  • true: is returned if the query was successfully executed and the $isSelect parameter is set to FALSE
  • false: is returned if the query execution failed, irrespective of the value of the $isSelect parameter
  • array: is returned if the query was successful and the $isSelect parameter is set to TRUE. select*() methods always set $isSelect to TRUE
