This package provides a drop-in replacement of the official mongodb extension, as a HNI extension to be executed under HHVM runtime
The BSON encode and decode functions are implemented in C++ and the rest of the interface is in pure PHP thanks to Mongofill.
This HNI implementation is 3-5 times faster than the original mongofill extension in pure PHP, too provide a working phpversion("mongo") under HHVM, returning
1.4.5, missed in the original mongofill.
Building and Installation
Installation requires hhvm-dev package to be installed. Alternatively a copy of HHVM can be built from source on the local machine; instructions on how to do this are available on the HHVM Wiki.
The library libbson is required to be installed in the system, you can follow the instructions in the libbson repository.
Once done, the following commands will build the extension.
git clone https://github.com/mongofill/mongofill-hhvm cd mongofill-hhvm ./build.sh
This will produce a
mongo.so file, the dynamically-loadable extension.
To enable the extension, you need to have the following section in your hhvm config file
hhvm.dynamic_extension_path = /path/to/hhvm/extensions hhvm.dynamic_extensions[mongo] = mongo.so
You can check the current supported libraries at wiki page Supported-Libraries
You can catch us on IRC on Freenode channel #mongofill
A small suite of benchmarking is included with the mongofill package, you can run the suite with this command:
php ./vendor/bin/athletic -b tests/bootstrap.php -p tests/Mongofill/Benchmarks/
