Firestore cache driver for Laravel app running inside Google App Engine.
Cache driver for Laravel/Firevel applications running inside App Engine standard environment.
composer require firevel/firestore-cache-driver
Add firestore driver to config/cache.php
'stores' => [ ... 'firestore' => [ 'driver' => 'firestore', 'collection' => 'cache', // Firestore collection name. ], ... ];
CACHE_DRIVER=firestore in your .env.
Driver was developed basing on Laravel 5.8+ where TTL is counted in seconds not minutes.
- Up-to-date limitation https://cloud.google.com/firestore/quotas.
- Maximum size for a document is 1MB, so keep your cache values small.
- Maximum write rate to a document is 1 per second (looks like its higher in practice). It might affect functionalities based on fast value increase (for example api throttling).
- Firestore can delete one document per call, so operations like
flush()taking some time.
