Adapters For Interoperability between PSR-6 and PSR-16 Cache

4.0 version

Adapters For Interoperability between PSR-6 and PSR-16 Cache

Sometimes, you may have a Cache object that implements the PSR-16 standard, but need to pass it to an object that expects a PSR-6 cache adapter. Or, you might have the opposite situation. The cache component contains two classes for bidirectional interoperability between PSR-6 and PSR-16 caches.

Using a PSR-16 Cache Object as a PSR-6 Cache

Suppose you want to work with a class that requires a PSR-6 Cache pool object. For example:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
use Psr\Cache\CacheItemPoolInterface;

// just a made-up class for the example
class GitHubApiClient
{
    // ...

    // this requires a PSR-6 cache object
    public function __construct(CacheItemPoolInterface $cachePool)
    {
        // ...
    }
}

But, you already have a PSR-16 cache object, and you'd like to pass this to the class instead. No problem! The Cache component provides the SimpleCacheAdapter class for exactly this use-case:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
use Symfony\Component\Cache\Simple\FilesystemCache;
use Symfony\Component\Cache\Adapter\SimpleCacheAdapter;

// the PSR-16 cache object that you want to use
$psr16Cache = new FilesystemCache();

// a PSR-6 cache that uses your cache internally!
$psr6Cache = new SimpleCacheAdapter($psr16Cache);

// now use this wherever you want
$githubApiClient = new GitHubApiClient($psr6Cache);
