This repository is a simple abstraction layer for key-value caches. It implements PSR-16.

If you need a super-simply way to support PSR-16, sabre/cache helps you get started. It's as hands-off as possible.

It also comes with a test-suite that can be used by other PSR-16 implementations.


Make sure you have composer installed, and then run:

composer require sabre/cache


Read PSR-16 for the API. We follow it to the letter.

In-memory cache

This is useful as a test-double or long running processes. The Memory cache only lasts as long as the object does.

$cache = new \Sabre\Cache\Memory();

APCu cache

This object uses the APCu api for caching. It's a fast memory cache that's shared by multiple PHP processes.

$cache = new \Sabre\Cache\Apcu();

Memcached cache

This object uses the Memcached extension for caching.

$memcached = new \Memcached();
$memcached->addServer('', 11211);
$cache = new \Sabre\Cache\Memcached($memcached);

You are responsible for configuring memcached, and you just pass a fully instantiated objected to the \Sabre\Cache\Memcached constructor.
