Build Status


This extension only works with PHP 7.1+, Silex 2 and the Memcached driver. Version 1.0.0 is compatible with Silex 1 and both the Memcache/Memcached drivers.


Install with composer:

composer require mheap/silex-memcache


Before you can use this extension you need to register it with your application. You can specify a list of servers to connect to at this point

$app->register(new SilexMemcache\MemcacheExtension(), array(
    'memcache.server' => array(
        array('', 11211)

Once the extension is registered, it'll be available as $app['memcache']:

$app->get('/', function() use($app) {
    $app['memcache']->set('my_value', 'This is an example');
    $value = $app['memcache']->get('my_value');

Running the tests

You'll need memcached running on port 11211 locally to run the tests. If you don't have memcached installed you can run docker-compose up to run it in a container instead.
