A minimalistic cache adapter interface that was part of the Semantic MediaWiki code base and is now being deployed as independent library.

  • Support for MediaWiki's BagOStuff cache interface
  • Support for the Doctrine cache interface
  • Support for the Zend cache (ZF2) interface
  • Provides a FixedInMemoryLruCache array LRU cache without any external cache provider dependency
  • Provides a CompositeCache to combine different cache instances and allow access through hierarchical iteration on a first-come first-served basis


PHP 5.3 / HHVM 3.3 or later


The recommended installation method for this library is by either adding the dependency to your composer.json.

	"require": {
		"onoi/cache": "~1.1"


use Onoi\Cache\Cache;

class Foo {

	private $cache = null;

	public function __constructor( Cache $cache ) {
		$this->cache = $cache;

	public function doSomething( $id ) {

		if ( $this->cache->contains( $id ) ) {
			// do something
$cacheFactory = new CacheFactory();

$instance = new Foo( $cacheFactory->newFixedInMemoryLruCache( 500 ) );
$instance->doSomething( 'bar' );


$compositeCache = $cacheFactory->newCompositeCache( array(
	$cacheFactory->newFixedInMemoryLruCache( 500 ),
	$cacheFactory->newDoctrineCache( new \Doctrine\Common\Cache\RedisCache() ),
	$cacheFactory->newMediaWikiCache( new \SqlBagOStuf() )
) );

$instance = new Foo( $compositeCache );
$instance->doSomething( 'bar' );
