Storage Engine for file storage interaction

v2.1.1 2019-04-23 14:54 UTC


Storage engine provides required functionality to manage your files for different file servers based on provided configuration.

Storage engine is based on FlySystem and for correct work with file servers (except local one) you will need to provide required FlySystem adapter (take a look at concrete filesystem doc).

StorageEngine based on 2 basic interfaces:

  1. StorageInterface
    • works with all supported file servers that handle files
    • works with file paths in a specific format ({serverName}://{filePath} by default)
      • to change it you can prepare your own \Spiral\StorageEngine\Parser\UriParser class and make required binding
  2. ResolveManagerInterface
    • build url (and urls list) for file download

Supported file servers

Current release provides ability to work with:


You can configure file servers usage in Spiral with configuration file storage.php located in configuration directory.

You can receive more details about spiral configuration from here.

More details about specific file servers configuration you can find here

Configuration can contains:

  • servers (required)
    • file servers description
  • buckets (required)
    • server buckets description
    • main items for StorageEngine work. When you are working with filesystems from StorageEngine you are working with buckets.
    • bucket info refers to server and has only specific options
      • directory is relative to root directory for local file server
      • bucket is aws servers bucket name
  • tmp-dir
    • temp directory for creating some temp files for process
    • system temp directory by default

Configuration example



$s3Client = new \Aws\S3\S3Client([
    'version' => 'latest',
    'region' => env('AWS_REGION'),
    'credentials' => new \Aws\Credentials\Credentials(env('AWS_KEY'), env('AWS_SECRET')),
    'use_path_style_endpoint' => true,
    'endpoint' => env('AWS_PUBLIC_URL')

return [
    'servers' => [
        'awsServer' => [
            'adapter' => \League\Flysystem\AwsS3V3\AwsS3V3Adapter::class,
            'options' => [
                'client' => $s3Client,
        'localServer' => [
            'adapter' => \League\Flysystem\Local\LocalFilesystemAdapter::class,
            'options' => [
                'rootDir' => '/var/www/tmpLocal',
                'host' => 'http://localhost:8115/public/',
    'buckets' => [
        'local' => [
            'server' => 'local',
            'options' => [
                'directory' => 'b1/',
        'aws' => [
            'server' => 'aws',
            'options' => [
                'bucket' => env('AWS_BUCKET'),
        'aws2' => [
            'server' => 'aws',
            'options' => [
                'bucket' => env('AWS_BUCKET2'),
    'tmp-dir' => '/var/www/tmp/',

Basic usage

If you are use Spiral Framework

When you finish your configuration file you should add Spiral\StorageEngine\Bootloader\StorageEngineBootloader in your app.


When you need to make some file operation you should use your StorageEngine object for it:

  1. To perform different operations on your files you can use FilesystemOperator implemented object:
/** @var \Spiral\StorageEngine\StorageEngine $storageEngine **/
$uri = $storageEngine->write('local', 'someDir/myFile.txt', 'It is my text'); // = 'local://someDir/myFile.txt'
$streamContent = $storage->readStream($uri);
$fileSize = $storage->fileSize($uri);

$copiedUri = $storageEngine->copy($uri, 'aws', 'myCopy.txt'); // = 'aws://myCopy.txt'
$mimeType = $storageEngine->mimeType($copiedUri); // = 'text/plain'
  1. To build url to your file you can use ResolveManagerInterface object:
$resolveManager->buildUrl('local://someDir/myFile.txt'); // for example it can return smth like 'http://myhost.com/files/somedir/myfile.txt'
  • P.S. For local server you should define host in server description to build url. In other case it will throw exception.
