The siriusphp/sql library is designed to help you build and execute SQL simple and complex queries in a fast and safe way.

The vocabulary is as close to SQL as possible as you may see from the example below:

use Atlas\Pdo\Connection;
use Sirius\Sql\Select;
use Sirius\Sql\ConditionsEnum;

$connection = Connection::new('sqlite::memory:');
$select = new Select($connection);

// find the 10 "cool" posts that are published and also retrieve the comments count
    ->columns('posts.*', 'COUNT(comments.id) AS comments_count')
    ->join('LEFT', 'comments', 'comments.commentable_id = posts.id AND comments.commentable_type = %s', 'posts')
    ->where('posts.published_at < NOW()')
    ->where('posts.title', 'cool', ConditionsEnum::CONTAINS)

$posts = $select->fectchAll();



This library is a derivative work of atlas/query. I made this library for 2 reasons:

  • to reduce cognitive load by removing some methods and implementing other ways to achieve the same goals (eg: nested conditions)
  • to optimize some operations for the most common scenarios (eg: where($column, $str, 'does_not_contain') vs where($column . ' LIKE ', '%' . $str . '%')
