Powering the next-generation microservices and application

Build high-performance, scalable, concurrent TCP, UDP, Unix Socket, HTTP, WebSocket, GRPC services with PHP and easy to use coroutine, fibers API

Write your next scalable async application with PHP coroutines and fibers.

Compared with other async programming frameworks or software such as Nginx, Tornado, Node.js, Open Swoole is a complete async solution that has built-in support for async programming via fibers/coroutines, a range of multi-threaded I/O modules (HTTP Server, WebSockets, GRPC, TaskWorkers, Process Pools) and support for popular PHP clients like PDO for MySQL, Redis and CURL.

You can use sync or async, coroutine, fiber API to write the applications or create thousands of light weight fibers within one Linux process.

Open Swoole enhances the efficiency of your PHP applications and brings you out of the traditional stateless model, enabling you to focus on the development of innovative products at high scale, bringing event loops and asynchronous programming to the PHP language.

Get Started

  • Installation

    # Linux users #!/bin/bash pecl install openswoole-22.1.2 # Mac users brew install php #!/bin/bash pecl install openswoole-22.1.2 # Install core library composer require openswoole/core:22.1.5
  • HTTP Server

    <?php $server = new OpenSwoole\HTTP\Server("", 9501); $server->on("start", function (OpenSwoole\Http\Server $server) { echo "OpenSwoole http server is started at\n"; }); $server->on("request", function (OpenSwoole\Http\Request $request, OpenSwoole\Http\Response $response) { $response->header("Content-Type", "text/plain"); $response->end("Hello World\n"); }); $server->start();
  • WebSocket Server

    <?php $server = new OpenSwoole\Websocket\Server("", 9502); $server->on('open', function($server, $req) { echo "connection open: {$req->fd}\n"; }); $server->on('message', function($server, $frame) { echo "received message: {$frame->data}\n"; $server->push($frame->fd, json_encode(["hello", "world"])); }); $server->on('close', function($server, $fd) { echo "connection close: {$fd}\n"; }); $server->start();
  • TCP Server

    <?php $server = new OpenSwoole\Server("", 9503); $server->on('connect', function ($server, $fd){ echo "connection open: {$fd}\n"; }); $server->on('receive', function ($server, $fd, $from_id, $data) { $server->send($fd, "OpenSwoole: {$data}"); $server->close($fd); }); $server->on('close', function ($server, $fd) { echo "connection close: {$fd}\n"; }); $server->start();
  • Coroutine TCP Client

    <?php $client = new OpenSwoole\Client(\OpenSwoole\Constant::SOCK_TCP); if (!$client->connect('', 9501, 0.5)) { exit("connect failed. Error: {$client->errCode}\n"); } $client->send("hello world\n"); echo $client->recv(); $client->close();
  • Coroutine Redis / HTTP / WebSocket Client

    <?php // Enable coroutine support for Redis API co::set(['hook_flags' => OpenSwoole\Runtime::HOOK_ALL]); $redis = new Redis(); $redis->connect('', 6379); $val = $redis->get('key'); echo $val; $http = new OpenSwoole\Coroutine\Http\Client('', 80); $http->get('/index.php'); echo $http->body; $http->close();
  • Coroutine Tasks

    <?php $server = new OpenSwoole\Http\Server("", 9501); $server->set([ 'worker_num' => 1, 'task_worker_num' => 2, ]); $server->on('Request', function ($request, $response) use ($server) { $tasks[0] = ['time' => 0]; $tasks[1] = ['data' => 'openswoole.com', 'code' => 200]; $result = $server->taskCo($tasks, 1.5); $response->end('<pre>Task Result: '.var_export($result, true)); }); $server->on('Task', function (OpenSwoole\Server $server, $task_id, $worker_id, $data) { if ($server->worker_id == 1) { sleep(1); } $data['done'] = time(); $data['worker_id'] = $server->worker_id; return $data; }); $server->start();
  • PSR HTTP Services

    <?php require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php'; use OpenSwoole\Core\Psr\Middleware\StackHandler; use OpenSwoole\Core\Psr\Response; use OpenSwoole\HTTP\Server; use Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface; use Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestInterface; use Psr\Http\Server\MiddlewareInterface; use Psr\Http\Server\RequestHandlerInterface; $server = new Server('', 9501); $server->on('start', function (Server $server) { echo "OpenSwoole http server is started at "; }); class DefaultResponseMiddleware implements MiddlewareInterface { public function process(ServerRequestInterface $request, RequestHandlerInterface $handler): ResponseInterface { return (new Response('aaaa'))->withHeader('x-a', '1234'); } } $stack = (new StackHandler()) ->add(new DefaultResponseMiddleware()); $server->setHandler($stack); $server->start();
  • GRPC Services

    <?php require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php'; use Helloworld\GreeterService; use Helloworld\StreamService; use OpenSwoole\GRPC\Middleware\LoggingMiddleware; use OpenSwoole\GRPC\Middleware\TraceMiddleware; use OpenSwoole\GRPC\Server; // enable hooks on IO clients co::set(['hook_flags' => OpenSwoole\Runtime::HOOK_ALL]); $server = (new Server('', 9501)) ->register(GreeterService::class) ->register(StreamService::class) ->withWorkerContext('worker_start_time', function () { return time(); }) // use middlewares ->addMiddleware(new LoggingMiddleware()) ->addMiddleware(new TraceMiddleware()) ->set([ 'log_level' => \OpenSwoole\Constant::LOG_INFO, ]) ->start() ;
