Cache (a tiny part of) the internet

Project description


Cache (a tiny part of) the internet.


pip install graze


from graze import Graze
import os
rootdir = os.path.expanduser('~/graze')
g = Graze(rootdir)

If this is your first time, you got nothing:


So get something. For no particular reason let's be self-referential and get myself:

url = ''
content = g[url]
type(content), len(content)

Before I grew up, I had only 46 petty bytes:

(bytes, 46)

These were:


# graze

Cache (a tiny part of) the internet

But now, here's the deal. List your g keys now. Go ahead, don't be shy!


What does that mean?

I means you have a local copy of these contents.

The file path isn't really https://..., it's rootdir/https/..., but you only have to care about that if you actually have to go get the file with something else than graze. Because graze will give it to you.

How? Same way you got it in the first place:

content_2 = g[url]
assert content_2 == content

But this time, it didn't ask the internet. It just got it's local copy.

And if you want a fresh copy?

No problem, just delete your local one. You guessed! The same way you would delete a key from a dict:

del g[url]
