Intro

Mezon provides simple cache class. Wich will help you to test how caching will affect performance of your code. If the performance will be boosted, then you can implement more complex solutions for caching.

Installation

Just print in console

composer require mezon/cache
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And that's all )

How to use?

First of all we need to create single instance of cache ("singleton" pattern is used):

$cache = Cache::getInstance();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then we can add data to cache:

$cache->set('key', 'data to be stored');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After all data was added you need to store it to be able using it within other requests.

$cache->flush();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And then you can check if the key exists:

var_dump($cache->exists('key')); // bool(true)
var_dump($cache->exists('unexisting-key')); // bool(false)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And then you can fetch data by it's key:

var_dump($cache->get('key')); // string('data to be stored')
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's all for now )
