Latest Stable Version License NPM Downloads

Installation

$ npm install lite-node-cache --save

or

$ yarn add lite-node-cache

Usage

// const Cache = require("lite-node-cache/es5"); // if es6 not support.
const Cache = require("lite-node-cache"); // if es6 support.
const cacheInstance = new Cache({
    ttl: 6000 // the lifetime of the recording in milliseconds
});

// set new item in cache
cacheInstance.set("key1", "value1");

// get value from cache after 3 seconds
setTimeout(function () {
    console.log(cacheInstance.get("key1")); // "value1"
}, 3000);

// get value from cache after 6.5 seconds
setTimeout(function () {
    console.log(cacheInstance.get("key1")); // false
}, 6500);

Example with http request

// const Cache = require("lite-node-cache/es5"); // if es6 not support.
const Cache = require("lite-node-cache"); // if es6 support.
const request = require('request');
const cacheInstance = new Cache({
    ttl: 6000, // the lifetime of the recording in milliseconds
    garbageCollectorTimeInterval: 10000,
    garbageCollectorAsyncMode: false,
    debugMode: true
});

const url = "http://google.ru";

setInterval(function () {
    let result = cacheInstance.get(url);
    if (result) {
       console.log("get value from cache");
       // do something with result...
    } else {
        request(url, function (err, result) {
            if (err) console.log(err.message);
            cacheInstance.set(url, result);
            console.log("new request and save in cache");
            // do something with result...
        });
    }
}, 1000);

Example with mysql query

// const Cache = require("lite-node-cache/es5"); // if es6 not support.
const Cache = require("lite-node-cache"); // if es6 support.
const mysql = require('mysql');
const cacheInstance = new Cache({
    ttl: 6000, // the lifetime of the recording in milliseconds
    garbageCollectorTimeInterval: 10000,
    garbageCollectorAsyncMode: false,
    debugMode: true
});

const connection  = mysql.createPool({
  connectionLimit : 1,
  host     : 'localhost',
  user     : 'me',
  password : 'secret',
  database : 'my_db'
});

setInterval(function () {
    let query = 'SELECT 1 + 1 AS solution';
    let result = cacheInstance.get(query);
    if (result) {
       console.log("get query result from cache");
       // do something with result...
       console.log(result[0].solution); // 2
    } else {
        connection.query(query, function (err, rows, fields) {
            if (err) throw err;
            cacheInstance.set(query, rows);
            console.log("new query and save result in cache");
            // do something with result...
            console.log(rows[0].solution); // 2
        });
    }
}, 3000);

Api

create cacheInstance

// const Cache = require("lite-node-cache/es5"); // if es6 not support.
const Cache = require("lite-node-cache"); // if es6 support.
const cacheInstance = new Cache({
    ttl: 6000,
    garbageCollectorTimeInterval: 10000,
    garbageCollectorAsyncMode: false,
    debugMode: true
});

####Arguments:

options (Object type):

ttl (Integer) (default value: 30000): The lifetime of the recording in milliseconds.

garbageCollectorTimeInterval (Integer) (default value: 10000): Frequency of garbage collector (in milliseconds).

garbageCollectorAsyncMode (Boolean) (default value: false): Asynchronous cleaning mode in order not to block the execution of the script.

debugMode (Boolean) (default value: false): In this mode, you will receive valuable information that will help you to debug the script.

Returns:

(Object): cacheInstance.

get value from cache (Synchronous)

cacheInstance.get(key);

Arguments:

key (any type): Key to obtain the value from the cache.

Returns:

(any type): The cached value or false if the lifetime value has expired or value is not exist.

set value in cache (Synchronous)

cacheInstance.set(key, value, [ttl = null]);
