Easily store some loose values

Latest Version on Packagist Software License Build Status Quality Score StyleCI Total Downloads

This package makes it easy to store and retrieve some loose values. Stored values are saved as a json file.

It can be used like this:

use Spatie\Valuestore\Valuestore;

$valuestore = Valuestore::make($pathToFile);

$valuestore->put('key', 'value');

$valuestore->get('key'); // Returns 'value'

$valuestore->has('key'); // Returns true

// Specify a default value for when the specified key does not exist
$valuestore->get('non existing key', 'default') // Returns 'default'

$valuestore->put('anotherKey', 'anotherValue');

// Put multiple items in one go
$valuestore->put(['ringo' => 'drums', 'paul' => 'bass']);

$valuestore->all(); // Returns an array with all items

$valuestore->forget('key'); // Removes the item

$valuestore->flush(); // Empty the entire valuestore

$valuestore->flushStartingWith('somekey'); // remove all items whose keys start with "somekey"

$valuestore->increment('number'); // $valuestore->get('number') will return 1 
$valuestore->increment('number'); // $valuestore->get('number') will return 2
$valuestore->increment('number', 3); // $valuestore->get('number') will return 5

// Valuestore implements ArrayAccess
$valuestore['key'] = 'value';
$valuestore['key']; // Returns 'value'
isset($valuestore['key']); // Return true
unset($valuestore['key']); // Equivalent to removing the value

// Valuestore implements Countable
count($valuestore); // Returns 0
$valuestore->put('key', 'value');
count($valuestore); // Returns 1

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/valuestore

Usage

To create a Valuestore use the make method.

$valuestore = Valuestore::make($pathToFile);

You can also pass some values as a second argument. These will be added to the valuestore using the put method.

$valuestore = Valuestore::make($pathToFile, ['key' => 'value']);

All values will be saved as json in the given file.

When there are no values stored, the file will be deleted.

You can call the following methods on the Valuestore
