Download the PHP package envms/fluentpdo without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package envms/fluentpdo. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

Informations about the package fluentpdo

FluentPDO Build Status Maintainability

FluentPDO is a PHP SQL query builder using PDO. It's a quick and light library featuring a smart join builder, which automatically creates table joins for you.



Version 2.x

The stable release of FluentPDO and actively maintained. Officially supports PHP 7.3 to PHP 8.0, but it can work with previous versions of PHP 7.

Version 1.x

The legacy release of FluentPDO. It is no longer supported and will not be maintained or updated. This version works with PHP 5.4 to 7.1.

Version 3.x - alpha

This version is a full rewrite of Fluent from the ground up. Its main advantage is significantly less memory usage and much greater performance in query building. It also places a few additional restrictions to make queries easier to read and maintain. Documentation has also been a very common request, and version 3 is being fully documented alongside development. Details and metrics will be posted once available.


Sitepoint - Getting Started with FluentPDO



The preferred way to install FluentPDO is via composer.

Add the following line in your composer.json file:

"require": {
    "envms/fluentpdo": "^2.2.0"

update your dependencies with composer update, and you're done!

Download Zip

If you prefer not to use composer, download the latest release, create the directory Envms/FluentPDO in your library directory, and drop this repository into it. Finally, add:

to the top of your application. Note: You will need an autoloader to use FluentPDO without changing its source code.

Getting Started

Create a new PDO instance, and pass the instance to FluentPDO:

Then, creating queries is quick and easy:

which would build the query below:

To get data from the select, all we do is loop through the returned array:

Using the Smart Join Builder

Let's start with a traditional join, below:

That's pretty verbose, and not very smart. If your tables use proper primary and foreign key names, you can shorten the above to:

That's better, but not ideal. However, it would be even easier to not write any joins:

Awesome, right? FluentPDO is able to build the join for you, by you prepending the foreign table name to the requested column.

All three snippets above will create the exact same query:

Finally, it's always a good idea to free resources as soon as they are done with their duties:

Note: INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE queries will only run after you call ->execute()
