#BonoCache Laravel Cache for Bono PHP Framework.

##Configuration Add these lines to your configuration file.

'bono.providers' => array(

'cache' => array(
    'driver' => 'file',
    'path' => __DIR__ . '/../../cache',
    'prefix' => 'bono',

The configuration takes three settings, they are driver, path, and prefix.

####Driver This option controls the default cache "driver" that will be used when using the Caching library. Of course, you may use other drivers any time you wish.

Supported Driver:

  • Now : file, array, apc
  • Later: norm, redis, memcached

####Path When using the file cache driver, we need an absolute location where the cache files may be stored.

##Cache Usage

Storing An Item In The Cache

$app->cache->put('key', 'value', $minutes);

Using Carbon Objects To Set Expire Time

$expiresAt = Carbon::now()->addMinutes(10);

$app->cache->put('key', 'value', $expiresAt); // cache will be expired at 10 minutes later

Storing An Item In The Cache If It Doesn't Exist

$app->cache->add('key', 'value', $minutes);

The add method will return true if the item is actually added to the cache. Otherwise, the method will return false.

Checking For Existence In Cache

if ($app->cache->has('key'))

Retrieving An Item From The Cache

$value = $app->cache->get('key');

Retrieving An Item Or Returning A Default Value

$value = $app->cache->get('key', 'default');

$value = $app->cache->get('key', function() { return 'default'; });

Storing An Item In The Cache Permanently

$app->cache->forever('key', 'value');

Sometimes you may wish to retrieve an item from the cache, but also store a default value if the requested item doesn't exist. You may do this using the $app->cache->remember method:

$value = $app->cache->remember('users', $minutes, function()
    return Norm::factory('User')->find();

You may also combine the remember and forever methods:

$value = $app->cache->rememberForever('users', function()
    return Norm::factory('User')->find();

Note that all items stored in the cache are serialized, so you are free to store any type of data.

Removing An Item From The Cache


Cache Tags

Note: Cache tags are not supported when using the file cache drivers. Furthermore, when using multiple tags with caches that are stored "forever", performance will be best with a driver such as memcached, which automatically purges stale records.

Cache tags allow you to tag related items in the cache, and then flush all caches tagged with a given name. To access a tagged cache, use the tags method:

Accessing A Tagged Cache

You may store a tagged cache by passing in an ordered list of tag names as arguments, or as an ordered array of tag names.

$app->cache->tags('people', 'authors')->put('Alfa', $alfa, $minutes);

$app->cache->tags(array('people', 'artists'))->put('Ganesha', $ganesha, $minutes);

You may use any cache storage method in combination with tags, including remember, forever, and rememberForever. You may also access cached items from the tagged cache, as well as use the other cache methods such as increment and decrement:

Accessing Items In A Tagged Cache

To access a tagged cache, pass the same ordered list of tags used to save it.

$ganesha = $app->cache->tags('people', 'artists')->get('Ganesha');

$alfa = $app->cache->tags(array('people', 'authors'))->get('Alfa');

You may flush all items tagged with a name or list of names. For example, this statement would remove all caches tagged with either people, authors, or both. So, both "Ganesha" and "Alfa" would be removed from the cache:

$app->cache->tags('people', 'authors')->flush();

In contrast, this statement would remove only caches tagged with authors, so "Alfa" would be removed, but not "Ganesha".
