MeekroDB is a mysqli wrapper PHP 5.3+ fork (smaller file size)



If you are using composer, then add ronisaha/meekro4php5.3 as a dependency:

composer require ronisaha/meekro4php5.3

In this case, you would include composer's auto-loader at the top of your source files:

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';


If you don't have composer available, then simply download the code and include autoload.php:

git clone
require __DIR__ . '/meekrodb/autoload.php';


use Meekro\DB;

DB::$user = 'my_database_user';
DB::$password = 'my_database_password';
DB::$dbName = 'my_database_name';

Quick Doc / example

Grab some rows from the database and print out a field from each row.

$accounts = DB::query("SELECT * FROM accounts WHERE type = %s AND age > %i", $type, 15);
foreach ($accounts as $account) {
  echo $account['username'] . "\n";

Insert a new row.

DB::insert('mytable', array(
  'name' => $name,
  'rank' => $rank,
  'location' => $location,
  'age' => $age,
  'intelligence' => $intelligence

Grab one row or field

$account = DB::row("SELECT * FROM accounts WHERE username=%s", 'Joe');
$number_accounts = DB::field("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM accounts");

Use a list in a query

DB::query("SELECT * FROM tbl WHERE name IN %ls AND age NOT IN %li", array('John', 'Bob'), array(12, 15));

Nested Transactions

Config::$nested_transactions = true;
DB::startTransaction(); // outer transaction
// .. some queries..
$depth = DB::startTransaction(); // inner transaction
echo $depth . 'transactions are currently active'; // 2
// .. some queries..
DB::commit(); // commit inner transaction
// .. some queries..
DB::commit(); // commit outer transaction
