Simple caching infrastructure.

Project Description

This package is designed to be used by applications which require different kinds of caching flavour. This is abstracted due to the interfaces ICacheProvider and ICacheManager. ICacheProvider takes care of the concrete cache implementation, ICacheManager is the read/write interface.

The convention is to adapt a concrete ICacheProvider implementation.

>>> from bda.cache import ICacheManager
>>> from bda.cache import Memcached
>>> provider = Memcached([''])
>>> manager = ICacheManager(provider)

We can ask the manager for data inside the cache

>>> data = manager.get('somekey', force_reload=False)

If force_reload is set to True, try to delete data with key from cache and return None.

We’re also able to manipulate the cache’s data (some restrictions my result out of backend not providing them)

>>> manager.set('somekey', object())

There exist a convenience to use some API’s and cache it’s results all at once.

>>> data = manager.getData(func, key, force_reload=False, args=[], kwargs={})

First the data for key is looked up inside the cache provider. If not found there or if force_reload is set to True, call given func . The return value of this function will be stored in the cache provider. args and kwargs are passed as parameters to given function if it’s call is required.

You might ask why all this is done due to 2 seperate interfaces…

Some usecase might require different cache providers i.e. for different payload size. This way you can implement any other cache provider usage as well due to the cache manager interface.
