Important

This repo has not been updated for Guzzle 6 and only supports Guzzle 5.

See https://github.com/Kevinrob/guzzle-cache-middleware for a nice Guzzle 6 compatible Cache middleware.

Provides a private transparent proxy cache for caching HTTP responses.

Here's a simple example of how it's used:

use GuzzleHttp\Client;
use GuzzleHttp\Subscriber\Cache\CacheSubscriber;

$client = new Client(['defaults' => ['debug' => true]]);

// Use the helper method to attach a cache to the client.
CacheSubscriber::attach($client);

// Send the first request
$a = $client->get('http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page');

// Send the second request. This will find a cache hit which must be
// validated. The validation request returns a 304, which yields the original
// cached response.
$b = $client->get('http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page');

Running the above code sample should output verbose cURL information that looks something like this:

> GET /wiki/Main_Page HTTP/1.1
Host: en.wikipedia.org
User-Agent: Guzzle/4.2.1 curl/7.37.0 PHP/5.5.13

Installing

Add the following to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "guzzlehttp/cache-subscriber": "0.1.*@dev"
    }
}

or

$ composer require guzzlehttp/cache-subscriber

Creating a CacheSubscriber

The easiest way to create a CacheSubscriber is using the attach() helper method of GuzzleHttp\Subscriber\Cache\CacheSubscriber. This method accepts a request or client object and attaches the necessary subscribers used to perform cache lookups, validation requests, and automatic purging of resources.

The attach() method accepts the following options:

storage
A GuzzleHttp\Subscriber\Cache\CacheStorageInterface object used to store cached responses. If no value is not provided, an in-memory array cache will be used.
validate
A Boolean value that determines if cached response are ever validated against the origin server. This setting defaults to true but can be disabled by passing false.
purge
A Boolean value that determines if cached responses are purged when non-idempotent requests are sent to their URI. This setting defaults to true but can be disabled by passing false.
can_cache
An optional callable used to determine if a request can be cached. The callable accepts a GuzzleHttp\Message\RequestInterface and returns a Boolean value. If no value is provided, the default behavior is utilized.

Warning

This is a WIP update for Guzzle 5+. It hasn't been tested and is in active development. Expect bugs and breaks.
