Haste Plus

Haste plus extends codefog/contao-haste as a collection of tools and classes to ease working with Contao.

Module Preview



The PHP high-performance object caching system, phpfastcache is part of hast_plus. Currently only File-Caching is supported, but Pull-Request are welcome.

Example : FileCache

// MyClass.php

public function getSelectOptions(array $arrNewsArchives)
	// select a unique key
	$strCacheKey = 'my_select_options' . implode('_', $arrNewsArchives);
		return FileCache::getInstance()->get($strCacheKey);
	$arrItems = array();
	// heavy sql queries or http-requests (just an example)
	$objItems = \NewsModel::findPublishedByPids($arrNewsArchives);
	if($objItems === null)
		return $arrItems;
	$arrItems = $objItems->fetchEach('headline');
	FileCache::getInstance()->set($strCacheKey, $arrItems);
	return $arrItems;


Add security headers to http request (configurable in tl_settings)

  • IFRAME Clickjacking Protection: X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
  • Allow Origins Check: Access-Control-Allow-Origins & Access-Control-Allow-Headers

These options don't work anymore with Contao 4! Further Information
