Get and save caches ($cache API variable as a function)

This behaves the same as the $cache API variable but does support arguments as a shortcut for the $cache->get() method.

  • If called with no arguments it returns the $cache API variable.
  • If called with arguments, it can be used the same as WireCache::get().

Usage

// basic usage
$wireCache = cache();

// usage with all arguments
$wireCache = cache(string $name = '', $expire = null, $func = null);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
name (optional)string
expire (optional)callable, int, string, null
func (optional)callable, int, string, null

Return value
