Version 0.0.1


EdpSuperluminal is a ZF2 module that caches the Zend classes used by your application into a single file. Including this file greatly reduces the execution time of your application, as the calls to the standard autoloader are almost entirely eliminated.

Warning: After installing and enabling this module, it may seem as though your ZF2 application is running faster than the speed of light (superluminal). Don't panic. This is just an illusion and no laws of physics are being violated.

For best results, use this module in conjunction with APC.


  • Clone this module into your vendor/ directory and enable EdpSuperluminal
  • Add the following line in public/index.php immediately after the chdir() call:
define('ZF_CLASS_CACHE', 'data/cache/classes.php.cache'); if (file_exists(ZF_CLASS_CACHE)) require_once ZF_CLASS_CACHE;
  • In your browser, go to http://yourapp/?EDPSUPERLUMINAL\_CACHE to build the initial class. You should do this for any page that is (a) dependency heavy, and/or (b) every page with a different dependency graph. Each call will append to the cache with any newly discovered classes. REQUESTS WHERE YOU ARE BUILDING THE CACHE WILL BE SLOW, THIS IS NORMAL.

  • Once the cache is built, you can disable and delete EdpSuperluminal, leaving line you added to public/index.php.
