Django cache tools originally developed for Ella CMS

Project description

Django cache tools originally developed for Ella CMS. It contains few helpful caching tools (such as cached ForeignKey, functions for caching object/objects, decorator for caching function/method, etc.)

Usage for models

In models.py you can use CachedForeignKey:

from __future__ import unicode_literals
from django.db import models
from cache_tools.fields import CachedForeignKey


@python_2_unicode_compatible
class Question(models.Model):
    question_text = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published')

    def __str__(self):
        return self.question_text


@python_2_unicode_compatible
class Choice(models.Model):
    question = CachedForeignKey(Question, on_delete=models.CASCADE)
    choice_text = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    votes = models.IntegerField(default=0)

    def __str__(self):
        return self.choice_text

Usage for caching function

In whatever.py you can use cache_this:

from cache_tools.utils import cache_this
from .models import Question


@cache_this(lambda *args, **kwargs: 'my_app_all_questions_cache_key')
def get_all_guestions():
    return list(Question.objects.all().order_by('pk'))
