#What is this? This is full-featured replacement for Laravel's Redis and file cache storages. All storages support proper tagging. Cache pools provided by http://www.php-cache.com/ + I've added HierarchialFilesystemCachePool based on code of FilesystemCachePool provided by http://www.php-cache.com/. All classes in this lib only proxies between Laravel's cache system and cache pools from http://www.php-cache.com/ and my own pools.

##What is proper tagging? For example you have:

Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->put('tag-test1', 'ok', 20);

How Laravel's native cache works with tags and Redis (Laravel 5.2):

Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->get('tag-test1');    //< 'ok'
Cache::tags(['tag2', 'tag1'])->get('tag-test1');    //< null
Cache::tags(['tag1'])->get('tag-test1');            //< null
Cache::tags(['tag2'])->get('tag-test1');            //< null
Cache::get('tag-test1');                            //< null
Cache::forget('tag-test1');                         //< won't delete anything
Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->forget('tag-test1'); //< deleted
Cache::tags(['tag2', 'tag1'])->forget('tag-test1'); //< won't delete anything
Cache::tags(['tag1'])->forget('tag-test1');         //< won't delete anything
Cache::tags(['tag2'])->forget('tag-test1');         //< won't delete anything
Cache::tags(['tag1'])->flush();                     //< won't delete anything
Cache::tags(['tag2'])->flush();                     //< won't delete anything
Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->flush();             //< flushed
Cache::tags(['tag2', 'tag1'])->flush();             //< won't delete anything

If you think that this is correct behavior - go away, you don't need this lib.

How it works with this lib:

Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->get('tag-test1');    //< 'ok' - use Cache::get('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag2', 'tag1'])->get('tag-test1');    //< 'ok' - use Cache::get('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag1'])->get('tag-test1');            //< 'ok' - use Cache::get('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag2'])->get('tag-test1');            //< 'ok' - use Cache::get('tag-test1') instead
Cache::get('tag-test1');                            //< 'ok'
Cache::forget('tag-test1');                         //< deleted
Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->forget('tag-test1'); //< deleted - use Cache::forget('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag2', 'tag1'])->forget('tag-test1'); //< deleted - use Cache::forget('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag1'])->forget('tag-test1');         //< deleted - use Cache::forget('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag2'])->forget('tag-test1');         //< deleted - use Cache::forget('tag-test1') instead
Cache::tags(['tag1'])->flush();                     //< deleted all cache entries with tag 'tag1'
Cache::tags(['tag2'])->flush();                     //< deleted all cache entries with tag 'tag2'
Cache::tags(['tag1', 'tag2'])->flush();             //< deleted all cache entries with tag 'tag1' or 'tag2'
Cache::tags(['tag2', 'tag1'])->flush();             //< deleted all cache entries with tag 'tag2' or 'tag1'

##How to use it:

Add to composer.json:

"repositories": [
        "type": "vcs",
        "url": "https://github.com/swayok/alternativelaravelcache.git"
"require": {
    "swayok/alternativelaravelcache": "master@dev"

Add to config/app.php:

$providers = [

##Notes By default service provider will replace Laravel's redis and file cache stores. You can alter this behavior like this:

class MyAlternativeCacheStoresServiceProvider extends AlternativeCacheStoresServiceProvider {
    static protected $redisDriverName = 'altredis';
    static protected $fileDriverName = 'altfile';

File cache storage currently supports only 'driver' => 'file'. You can extend list of file cache drivers by
overwriting AlternativeCacheStoresServiceProvider->makeFileCacheAdapter()

Yep, there is no tests right now and possibly they will never appear.
