Why?

This package contains a number of utility classes to play with PSR-6 caches.

File bound cache

Most PHP cache systems (like PSR-6 or PSR-16) are storing items in cache and attributing to items a time to live (TTL).

If you are developing a PHP framework or a PHP analysis library that relies a lot on reflection, it is quite common to have cache items that are related to PHP files or PHP classes.

For instance, Doctrine Annotations in a class do not change unless the class file(s) is changed. Therefore, it makes sense to bind the cache invalidation to the modification date of the file. thecodingmachine/cache-utils provides just that.

use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\FileBoundCache;

$fileBoundCache = new FileBoundCache($psr6Cache);

// Put the $myDataToCache object in cache.
// If 'FooBar.php' and 'FooBaz.php' are modified, the cache item is purged.
$fileBoundCache->set('cache_key', $myDataToCache, 
[
    'FooBar.php',
    'FooBaz.php'
]);

// Fetching data
$myDataToCache = $fileBoundCache->get('cache_key');

You can also use the FileBoundMemoryAdapter to store the cache in memory for even faster access in the same query.

use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\FileBoundCache;
use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\FileBoundMemoryAdapter;

$fileBoundCache = new FileBoundMemoryAdapter(new FileBoundCache($psr6Cache));

Class bound cache

You can also bind a cache item to a class / trait / interface using the ClassBoundCache class. The cache will expire if the class / trait / interface is modified.

use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\FileBoundCache;
use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\ClassBoundCache;

$fileBoundCache = new FileBoundCache($psr6Cache);
$classBoundCache = new ClassBoundCache($fileBoundCache);

// Put the $myDataToCache object in cache.
// If the FooBar class is modified, the cache item is purged.
$classBoundCache->set('cache_key', $myDataToCache, new ReflectionClass(FooBar::class));

// Fetching data
$myDataToCache = $classBoundCache->get('cache_key');

The ClassBoundCache constructor accepts 3 additional parameters:

class ClassBoundCache implements ClassBoundCacheInterface
{
    public function __construct(FileBoundCacheInterface $fileBoundCache, bool $analyzeParentClasses = true, bool $analyzeTraits = true, bool $analyzeInterfaces = false)
}
  • $analyzeParentClasses: if set to true, the cache will be invalidated if one of the parent classes is modified
  • $analyzeTraits: if set to true, the cache will be invalidated if one of the traits is modified
  • $analyzeInterfaces: if set to true, the cache will be invalidated if one of the interfaces implemented is modified

You can also use the ClassBoundMemoryAdapter to store the cache in memory for even faster access in the same query.

use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\ClassBoundCache;
use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\ClassBoundMemoryAdapter;

$classBoundCache = new ClassBoundMemoryAdapter(new ClassBoundCache($psr6Cache));

Easier interface with cache contracts

You can even get an easier to use class bound cache using the ClassBoundCacheContract.

use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\FileBoundCache;
use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\ClassBoundCache;
use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\ClassBoundMemoryAdapter;
use TheCodingMachine\CacheUtils\ClassBoundCacheContract;

$fileBoundCache = new FileBoundCache($psr6Cache);
$classBoundCache = new ClassBoundMemoryAdapter(new ClassBoundCache($psr6Cache));
$classBoundCacheContract = new ClassBoundCacheContract(new ClassBoundCache($fileBoundCache));

// If the FooBar class is modified, the cache item is purged.
$item = $classBoundCache->get(new ReflectionClass(FooBar::class), function() {
    // ...
    // let's return the item to be cached.
    // this function is called only if the item is not in cache yet.
    return $item;
});

With cache contracts, there is not setters. Only a getter that takes in parameter a callable that will resolve the cache item if the item is not available in the cache.
