What's it for?

This plugin provides a helper class that manages the amount of occurences of any given object.

There are two simple mechanics that can be used.

  1. incUsageOf(string $id) - indicates to the helper that the object with the given identifier is used (once more). The helper internally counts the amount of uses for this identifier.
  2. amountOfUses(string $id) - returns an integer value of the amount of uses.

The helper is implemented as a Singleton instance, so a particular identifier could be used accross multiple plugins. Keep this in mind when choosing an identifier.


There is no wiki syntax involved.
