Django cache backend for Amazon ElastiCache (memcached)

Project description


Simple Django cache backend for Amazon ElastiCache (memcached based). It uses pymemcache and sets up a connection to each node in the cluster using auto discovery. Originally forked from django-elasticache.


  • pymemcache

  • Django>=2.2

  • django-pymemcache>=1.0


Get it from pypi:

pip install django-elastipymemcache


Your cache backend should look something like this:

    'default': {
        'BACKEND': 'django_elastipymemcache.backend.ElastiPymemcache',
        'LOCATION': '[configuration endpoint]:11211',
        'OPTIONS': {
          'ignore_exc': True, # pymemcache Client params
          'ignore_cluster_errors': True, # ignore get cluster info error


Run the tests like this:
