Laravel Facades

Getting non static function statically is called Facades.

Lets set the cache like below in our web route

cache()->set('name',"navid");

and get it using dd()

dd(cache()->get('name'));
Result : “navid”

As we can see cache() is not a static method. If we Ctrl+Left Mouse Click on cache(),it will go to that method and we can see the cache()

function cache()
    {
        $arguments = func_get_args();

        if (empty($arguments)) {
            return app('cache');
        }

        if (is_string($arguments[0])) {
            return app('cache')->get(...$arguments);
        }

        if (! is_array($arguments[0])) {
            throw new Exception(
                'When setting a value in the cache, you must pass an array of key / value pairs.'
            );
        }

        return app('cache')->put(key($arguments[0]), reset($arguments[0]), $arguments[1] ?? null);
    }
}

Though cache() is not a static function ,but in Laravel we can call it statically .It is called Facades.

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Cache; cache::set('name',"navid");
dd(cache::get('name')); 

Result is “navid”
