Simple class for logging time and memory usage of methods and such.

The Timer::__toString() method will create a simple plain text overview, but you can of course also create your own output by using the properties of the Timer objects directly.


If you use Composer, which I highly recommend, simply add the following dependency to your composer.json:

    	"geekality/timer": "1.*"

Otherwise just download the file Timer.php from here and include it in your project. It's self-contained so you only need this one file.

Example usage

// Stuff
// Sub section stuff
// More stuff
echo Timer::result();

Here is some sample output from the sample/add.php script in this repo.

/TimerPHP/sample/add.php(3, 9)
 │ 7.001 s
 │ 4.02 KiB, 732.41 KiB
 ├ SlowMath::slowAdd(3, 9)
 │  │ 
 │  │ 4.001 s
 │  │ 432.00 B, 732.41 KiB
 │ ─┘ 
 ├ test(null, true, false)
 │  │ 
 │  │ 2.000 s
 │  │ 176.00 B, 732.41 KiB
 │ ─┘ 

If you want to see some more extensive use of this class, you can check out my project, Svish/MyHymnal. There I also dump the result to a file which you can load on the website by clicking a tiny Debug link in the bottom right corner.
