Download the PHP package ramsey/uuid-doctrine without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package ramsey/uuid-doctrine. 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?

The ramsey/uuid-doctrine package provides the ability to use ramsey/uuid as a Doctrine field type.

This project adheres to a code of conduct. By participating in this project and its community, you are expected to uphold this code.


Install this package as a dependency using Composer.



To configure Doctrine to use ramsey/uuid as a field type, you'll need to set up the following in your bootstrap:

In Symfony:

In Zend Framework:

In Laravel:


Then, in your models, you may annotate properties by setting the @Column type to uuid, and defining a custom generator of Ramsey\Uuid\UuidGenerator. Doctrine will handle the rest.

If you use the XML Mapping instead of PHP annotations.

You can also use the YAML Mapping.

Binary database columns

In the previous example, Doctrine will create a database column of type CHAR(36), but you may also use this library to store UUIDs as binary strings. The UuidBinaryType helps accomplish this.

In your bootstrap, place the following:

In Symfony:

Then, when annotating model class properties, use uuid_binary instead of uuid:


InnoDB-optimised binary UUIDs

More suitable if you want to use UUIDs as primary key. Note that this can cause unintended effects if:

In Symfony:

Then, in your models, you may annotate properties by setting the @Column type to uuid_binary_ordered_time, and defining a custom generator of Ramsey\Uuid\UuidOrderedTimeGenerator. Doctrine will handle the rest.

If you use the XML Mapping instead of PHP annotations.

Working with binary identifiers

When working with binary identifiers you may wish to convert them into a readable format. As of MySql 8.0 you can use the BIN_TO_UUID and UUID_TO_BIN functions documented here. The second argument determines if the byte order should be swapped, therefore when using you should pass 0 and when using you should pass 1.

For other versions you can use the following:
