Repository to be used with nilportugues/repository implementing a PSR-6 cache layer using StashPHP.


Use Composer to install the package:

$ composer require nilportugues/repository-cache

Cache Drivers

Repository Cache supports all of Stash's drivers:

  • System
    • FileSystem
    • Sqlite (requires php-pdo-sqlite extension)
    • APC (requires php-apcu extension)
  • Server
    • Memcached (requires php-memcache or php-memcached extensions)
    • Redis (requires php-redis extension)
  • Specialized
    • Ephemeral (in memory cache)
    • Composite

For more information please check out Stash's documentation.


use NilPortugues\Foundation\Infrastructure\Model\Repository\Cache\RepositoryCache;
use Stash\Driver\Ephemeral;
use Stash\Driver\Memcache;
use Stash\Pool;

// Definition of cache drivers
$memcached = new Memcache();
$memcached->setOptions(array('servers' => array('', '11211')));

$cachePool = new Pool();
$cachePool->setDriver(new Ephemeral()); //hit in memory first as always will be faster
$cachePool->setDriver($memcached); //hit memcached second.

$ttl = 3600; //time in second for cache to expire.
$cacheNamespace = Color::class;

// Adding cache to an existing repository
$sqlRepository = new MySQLColorRepository();
$repository = new RepositoryCache($cachePool, $repository, $cacheNamespace, $ttl);

// Now use as normal... 
$color = new Color('#@@@@@@', 'New color');
$repository->find(ColorId('#@@@@@@')); //should hit cache and return an instance of Color.


To run the PHPUnit tests at the command line, go to the tests directory and issue phpunit.
