Download the PHP package tedivm/stash without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package tedivm/stash. 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 stash

Stash - A PHP Caching Library

License Latest Stable Version Total Downloads

Stash makes it easy to speed up your code by caching the results of expensive functions or code. Certain actions, like database queries or calls to external APIs, take a lot of time to run but tend to have the same results over short periods of time. This makes it much more efficient to store the results and call them back up later.


Installing Stash can be done through a variety of methods, although Composer is recommended.


Until Stash reaches a stable API with version 1.0 it is recommended that you review changes before Minor updates, although bug fixes will always be backwards compatible.

or by using the composer require command:


Releases of Stash are available on Github.


Although this README contains some useful data there is a lot more information at the main site,

Core Concepts

Main Classes

Stash has three main components: a Pool class that represents a specific grouping of cached objects, an Item class that provides access to individual objects, and a series of Driver classes that allow Stash to interact with caching systems.

Each Driver is initialized and then passed into a Pool, at which point the developer can simply forget about it. Developers also have the option of using multiple Drivers together by joining them with the Composite Driver.

The Pool class allows developers to perform a number of tasks. There are a few maintenance related tasks, such as running a "Purge" to allow backend systems to perform maintenance tasks or set new logging or driver classes. The Pool also can be used to create Item objects, singly or in groups.

Each Item represents a single object inside the cache. It has a unique Key, meaning that any two Items created from the same Pool will contain the same Value. An Item can set, get and remove a value from a caching system.


A Key is a string that represents an Item in a caching system. At its simplest, a key is an alphanumeric string and has a one to one relationship with a value in the cache.

Stash provides a feature known as "stacks" that allows developers to group related Items together so they can be erased as a group. This is done by giving Items a nested structure, similar to folders on a computer. Just like with folders, this is represented by adding slashes to the name representing the file or cached object.

For example, a Key like "/models/users/34/profile" can allow developers to clear the data for specific users using that user's id, or clear the data for all users or even all models. It can also allow that developer to break up data into specific pieces to only load what is needed.

Session Storage

The provided Session class takes a Pool in its constructor and can then be registered as a Session Handler using the built-in PHP methods, the Session::registerHandler static function, or by using any framework that uses the SessionHandlerInterface interface.


Stash currently supports the following backends:

Stash also supports a specialized "Composite" Driver which can contain any number of the above drivers. This allows developers to created multi-tiered drivers that use a variety of back ends.

Symfony Integration

The Stash Bundle makes using Stash inside of Symfony projects significantly easier. This bundle exposes Stash as a Service for developers to use, and allows Symfony to use Stash as a session handler.


Stash is licensed under the BSD License. See the LICENSE file for details.

Reporting Security and Vulnerability Issues

This project utilizes the Tidelift Security Reporting System for security and vulnerability reporting.


Issues can be opened directly in Github for issues that aren't related to security.

Professionally supported Stash is now available with Tidelift.
