kelunik/rate-limit is a rate limiting library for Amp.


composer require kelunik/rate-limit


You're in full control of any actions when the rate limit is exceeded. You can also already warn the user before he exceeds the limit.

$current = yield $this->rateLimit->increment("{$userId}:{$action}");

if ($current > $this->limit) {
    // show captcha or error page or do anything you want
} else {
    // request is within the limit, continue normally

If you want to expose the limits, e.g. in an HTTP API, you can also request the reset time for a given key.

$current = yield $this->rateLimit->increment("{$userId}:{$action}");

$response->setHeader("x-ratelimit-limit", $this->limit);
$response->setHeader("x-ratelimit-remaining", $this->limit - $current);
$response->setHeader("x-ratelimit-reset", yield $this->rateLimit->ttl("{$userId}:{$action}"));

RateLimit::ttl() returns the seconds until the limit is reset. If you want to return the absolute time, you can just add time() to that value.
