ACache - another PHP cache library.

<?php
require_once __DIR__.'/vendor/autoload.php';

$cache = new Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache();

$cache->save('yin', 'yang');

echo 'yin and '.$cache->fetch('yin');

ACache requires PHP 7.1 or later.

Installation

Install the latest version with

$ composer require radebatz/acache

Features

ACache is inspired by the doctrine cache component. In fact, there is even a decorator to allow you to use any ACache instance in place of doctrine cache.

Since some features were hard to add on top of that I ended up writing my own :)

Namespaces

The Radebatz\ACache\Cache interface allows to explicitely use a namespace for any given id.

<?php
include 'vendor/autoload.php';
define('MY_NAMESPACE', 'my');

$cache = new Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache();

$cache->save('yin', 'yang', MY_NAMESPACE);

echo 'my yin and '.$cache->fetch('yin', MY_NAMESPACE).PHP_EOL;

While that works well it sometimes is desirable to do this a little bit more transparent (and save some typing).

<?php
include 'vendor/autoload.php';
define('MY_NAMESPACE', 'my');

$cache = new Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache();
// wrap given cache in namespace
$myCache = new Radebatz\ACache\NamespaceCache($cache, MY_NAMESPACE);

$myCache->save('yin', 'yang');

echo 'my yin and '.$myCache->fetch('yin').PHP_EOL;
// or, using the decorated cache directly
echo 'my yin and '.$cache->fetch('yin', MY_NAMESPACE).PHP_EOL;

Wrapping an existing cache instance in a Radebatz\ACache\NamespaceCache effectively allows to partition that cache without the need to carry the namespace around for all method calls.

Multi level

Sometimes losing and re-building your cache due to a reboot or similar can be quite expensive. One way to cope with that is by using a multi-level cache.

A fast (non-persistent) cache is used as primary cache. If an entry cannot be found in that (for example, due to a reboot) it will fall back to a persistent cache (filesystem, db). Only if all configured cache instances are queried an entry would be declared as not found.

<?php
include 'vendor/autoload.php';

// two level cache stack
$cache = new Radebatz\ACache\MultiLevelCache(array(
    new Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache(),
    new Radebatz\ACache\FilesystemCache(__DIR__.'/cache')
));

// save both in ArrayCache and FilesystemCache
$cache->save('yin', 'yang');

// lookup will only use ArrayCache
echo 'my yin and '.$cache->fetch('yin').PHP_EOL;

Running the same code again will result in the same output, even if the save() call is commented out.

<?php
include 'vendor/autoload.php';

$cache = new Radebatz\ACache\MultiLevelCache(array(
    new Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache(),
    new Radebatz\ACache\FilesystemCache(__DIR__.'/cache')
));

// save both in ArrayCache and FilesystemCache
//$cache->save('yin', 'yang');

// lookup will only use ArrayCache
echo 'my yin and '.$cache->fetch('yin').PHP_EOL;

Here the Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache instance will be empty and the Radebatz\ACache\MultiLevelCache will fall back to using the file based cache to lookup (and find) the cache entry.

Nesting

Both namespace and multi-level cache instances can be arbitrary nested.

Psr/Cache

All cache instances can be used as Psr\Cache\CacheItemPoolInterface instances by wrapping them in a Psr decorator.

use Radebatz\ACache\ArrayCache;
use Radebatz\ACache\Decorators\Psr\CacheItemPool;

$cache = new ArrayCache();

$psrCache = new CacheItemPool($cache);

$cacheItem = $prsCache->getItem('foo');
...

Testing

ACache comes with a pretty complete set of tests for a single cache instance and also combinations of multi-level and namespace caches.
