This is a PSR-16 implementation that always fails.

The motivation for this to exist is for fallback handling in cascading cache drivers. Rather than the application using a cache failing entirely because it can't connect to the cache, it can fall back to a non-throwing implementation like this.

Also useful for tests where you want to ensure correct non-throwing failure handling and don't want to write a mock driver.

Installation and Usage

Install: composer require firehed/null-psr16


$cache = new \Firehed\Cache\NullPsr16();
// Use like any other PSR-16 implementation
