Using Illuminate\Cache with Slim

I was searching for a way to use illuminate\cache with slim and did not found anything for current the version, only old posts for slim2 and illuminate\cache 4.3

I came up with this solution by updating old examples, and while its working i would like to know if its the right way or if there’s a better way to do it.

// Cache.
$container[‘cache’] = function ($c) {
$settings = $c->get(‘settings’);

$ic = new \Illuminate\Container\Container;
$ic['config'] = $settings['cache'];
$ic['files'] = new \Illuminate\Filesystem\Filesystem;
$cacheManager = new \Illuminate\Cache\CacheManager($ic);
$cache = $cacheManager->driver();
return $cache;


And settings:

    //Cache settings.
    'cache' => [
        'cache.default' => 'file',
        'cache.stores.file' => [
        'driver' => 'file',
        'path' => BASE_PATH . '/cache'


$app->get('/cache', function ($request, $response, $args) {
	$this->cache->put('foo', 'bar', 5);

Also, anyone knows how i would access the cache instance inside an eloquent model?
I don’t see any slim example or project skeletons on github using object cache of any kind.
