Examples

You can find a few fully working example scripts in the examples/ directory.

Opening Connections

$pool = new ConnectionPool('Keyspace1');

or

$pool = new ConnectionPool('Keyspace1', array('localhost'));

Create a column family object

$users = new ColumnFamily($pool, 'Standard1'); // ColumnFamily
$super = new ColumnFamily($pool, 'Super1'); // SuperColumnFamily

Inserting

$users->insert('key', array('column1' => 'value1', 'column2' => 'value2'));

Querying

$users->get('key'); 
$users->multiget(array('key1', 'key2'));

Removing

$users->remove('key1'); // removes whole row
$users->remove('key1', 'column1'); // removes 'column1'

Other

$users->get_count('key1'); // counts the number of columns in row 'key1'
$users->get_range('key1', 'key9'); // gets all rows with keys between '1' and '9'

Using the C Extension

The C extension is crucial for phpcassa's performance.

You need to configure and make to be able to use the C extension.

cd lib/thrift/ext/thrift_protocol
phpize
./configure
make
sudo make install

Add the following line to your php.ini file:

extension=thrift_protocol.so
