filicious is a high level object oriented filesystem abstraction for PHP.
This is a high level filesystem abstraction for php, inspired by the Java filesystem API.
We evaluated various filesystem abstraction frameworks, like Gaufrette.
But none of the frameworks we found, provides a real filesystem abstraction.
Gaufrette for example is more a
key => value storage, that uses a filesystem or online storage as source.
Some essential functions, like deleting a directory are not available in Gaufrette.
Copying files across filesystem adapters is also not possible.
The benefit of
Filicious is that it is a unique layer that...
- can be used every time you work with files (also for temporary files)
- can be used across multiple filesystems (also move or copy files between one another)
- is a nearly complete replacement for the php file API
- does not hide the file structure
- provides high and low level functions to the filesystem
- works with php iterators
- provides a "merged" filesystem, that builds a merged structure from several filesystems
- supports streaming
- provides configurable public url generation (useful for web apps)
use Filicious\Local\LocalAdapter; use Filicious\Filesystem; // go into your kitchen $adapter = new LocalAdapter('/var/lib/kitchen'); $kitchen = new Filesystem($adapter); // and grab the starter menu $starterMenuInKitchen = $kitchen->getFile('/starter.menu'); // access the lounge $adapter = new LocalAdapter('/var/lib/lounge'); $lounge = new Filesystem($adapter); // and move the starter menu from the kitchen to the lounge $starterMenuInLounge = $lounge->getFile('/starter.menu'); $starterMenuInKitchen->moveTo($starterMenuInLounge);
