OcraHopHop is a project aimed at reducing latency and resources used by a ZF2 Application while dispatching an HTTP Request.


The recommended way to install ocramius/ocra-hop-hop is through composer:

    "require": {
        "ocramius/ocra-hop-hop": "dev-master@dev"

Working concept

The concept behind OCraHopHop is simple, and can be summarized in following pseudo code:

// ...

while ($request = get_http_request()) {

The idea is to avoid initialization logic by re-using resources across multiple requests.

PHP was thought for share-nothing architectures, but for greater and more complex applications, such an approach is necessary.

If you already know FastCGI, this is what it is all about.


  1. Replace your public/index.php with the examples/zf2-server.php that you can find in OcraHopHop.
  2. Copy examples/zf2-worker.php to your public/ dir
  3. Open a terminal, cd to your public/ dir and run php zf2-worker.php
  4. Run siege or ab -k against your ZF application
  5. ...?
  6. Profit!
