Allows to cache output fragments using a file backend

<?php

use Phalcon\Cache\Backend\File;
use Phalcon\Cache\Frontend\Output as FrontOutput;

// Cache the file for 2 days
$frontendOptions = [
    "lifetime" => 172800,
];

// Create an output cache
$frontCache = FrontOutput($frontOptions);

// Set the cache directory
$backendOptions = [
    "cacheDir" => "../app/cache/",
];

// Create the File backend
$cache = new File($frontCache, $backendOptions);

$content = $cache->start("my-cache");

if ($content === null) {
    echo "<h1>", time(), "</h1>";

    $cache->save();
} else {
    echo $content;
}
