PHP Library for reading and writing binary data

Build Status No Maintenance Intended

I intentionally needed that for writing a PHP Client for TrafficCop. But the source grows so I decided to move it into an own package. You can also call this a pack() wrapper.

Install Via Composer

composer require t3ran13/bytebuffer


A simple usage example could look like this


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

use t3ran13\ByteBuffer\ByteBuffer;

$channel = 'channel_one';
$message = 'php';

$buffer = new ByteBuffer();
$buffer->writeInt32BE($buffer->length(), 0);
$buffer->writeInt8(0x1, 4);
$buffer->writeInt32BE(strlen($channel), 5);
$buffer->write($channel, 9);
$buffer->write($message, 9 + strlen($channel));

$socket = socket_create(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, SOL_TCP);
$result = socket_connect($socket, '', 3542);

socket_write($socket, (string) $buffer, $buffer->length());


  • Write Documentation
  • Improve examples
  • Allow Buffer as constructor
  • Write test for concatinating buffers
