Jackalope implements the PHPCR API. This modular library contains bindings to store data with the Doctrine DBAL or in the Jackrabbit JCR server part

Jackalope Build Status

A powerful implementation of the PHPCR API.

You can use Jackalope with different storage backends. For now, we support:

  • relational databases with the DoctrineDBAL backend. Works with any database supported by doctrine (mysql, postgres, ...) and has no dependency on java or jackrabbit. For the moment, it is less feature complete. See jackalope-doctrine-dbal
  • Jackrabbit server backend supports many features and requires you to simply install a .jar file for the data store component. See jackalope-jackrabbit
