PHP client for Tarantool

Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality Code Coverage


The recommended way to install the library is through Composer:

$ composer require tarantool/client:@dev


use Tarantool\Client\Client;
use Tarantool\Client\Connection\StreamConnection;
use Tarantool\Client\Packer\PurePacker;

$conn = new StreamConnection();
// or
// $conn = new StreamConnection('tcp://');
// $conn = new StreamConnection('tcp://', ['socket_timeout' => 5.0, 'connect_timeout' => 5.0]);
// $conn = new StreamConnection('unix:///tmp/tarantool_instance.sock');

$client = new Client($conn, new PurePacker());
// or
// $client = new Client($conn, new PeclPacker());
// $client = new Client($conn, new PeclLitePacker());

$space = $client->getSpace('my_space');
$result = $space->select();

$result = $client->evaluate('return ...', [42]);

$result = $client->call('box.stat');


Using packer classes provided by the library require to install additional dependencies, which are not bundled with the library directly. Therefore, you have to install them manually. For example, if you plan to use PurePacker, install the rybakit/msgpack package. See the "suggest" section of composer.json for other alternatives.


To run unit tests:

$ phpunit --testsuite Unit

To run integration tests:

$ phpunit --testsuite Integration

Make sure to start client.lua first.

To run all tests:

$ phpunit

If you already have Docker installed, you can run the tests in a docker container. First, create a container:

$ ./ | docker build -t client -

The command above will create a container named client with PHP 5.6 runtime. You may change the default runtime by defining the IMAGE environment variable:

$ IMAGE='php:7.0-cli' ./ | docker build -t client -

See a list of various images here.

Then run Tarantool instance (needed for integration tests):

$ docker run -d --name tarantool -v $(pwd):/client tarantool/tarantool \

And then run both unit and integration tests:

$ docker run --rm --name client --link tarantool -v $(pwd):/client -w /client client
