Description Author

This class can cache the contents of remote pages in local files.

It can retrieve the contents of a remote page with a given URL and store it in a local cache file, so next time the same page is requests it will retrieve from the cache file.

The cache file is stored with a given key name in a configurable cache directory. The cache expiry time is also configurable.

If the contents are in the JSON format, the class will return the decoded JSON value.

The class can also delete a given cached page or flush all expired cache files.

PHP EasyCache

The PHP EasyCache Class is an easy & fast way to cache 3rd party API calls with lossless data compression support.

Install

Install via composer:

{
    "require": {
        "iprodev/php-easycache": "~1.2"
    }
}

Run composer install then use as normal:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
$cache = new iProDev\Util\EasyCache();

Usage

A very basic usage example:

$cache = new iProDev\Util\EasyCache();
$latest_tweet = $cache->get_data('tweet', 'http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=from:chawroka&rpp=1');
var_dump($latest_tweet);

A more advanced example:

$cache = new iProDev\Util\EasyCache();
$cache->cache_path = 'cache/';
$cache->cache_time = 3600;

$data = $cache->get('identity_keyword');

if(!$data) {
	$data = $cache->get_contents('http://some.api.com/file.json');
	$cache->set('identity_keyword', $data);
}

var_dump($data);

An example with compressing data:

$cache = new iProDev\Util\EasyCache();
$cache->compress_level = 9;

$data = $cache->get_data('identity_keyword', 'http://some.api.com/file.json');

var_dump($data);

API Methods

$data = "Some data to cache";

// Call EasyCache
$cache = new iProDev\Util\EasyCache();

// SET a Data into Cache
$cache->set('identity_keyword', $data);

// GET a Data from Cache
$data = $cache->get('identity_keyword');

// Check that the data is cached
$is_cached = $cache->is_cached('identity_keyword');

// Get the Data from URL and cache it
$data = $cache->get_data('identity_keyword', 'http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=from:chawroka&rpp=1');

// Helper function for retrieving data from url without cache
$data = $cache->get_contents('http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=from:chawroka&rpp=1');

// REMOVE a Cache item
$cache->delete('identity_keyword');

// REMOVES all Cache expired items
$cache->flush_expired();

// REMOVES all Cache items
$cache->flush();

Configuration

// Call EasyCache
$cache = new iProDev\Util\EasyCache();

// Path to cache folder (with trailing /)
$cache->cache_path = 'cache/';

// Cache file extension
$cache->cache_extension = '.cache';

// Length of time to cache a file (in seconds)
$cache->cache_time = 3600;

// Lossless data compression level. 1 - 9; 0 to disable
$cache->compress_level = 0;
