adds least-recently-used cache management and automatic data timeout to Python's Shelf class.

Project description

Tick Tock adds least-recently-used cache management and automatic data timeout to Python’s Shelf class.

>>> # Make your shelves manage your data based on time and/or size:
... myshelf ='myshelf', timeout=60, maxsize=50)

>>> myshelf['foo'] = 'value'
>>> myshelf['foo']
>>> # Wait 60 seconds, then try again:
... myshelf['foo']
    KeyError: 'foo'

>>> len(myshelf)
>>> myshelf['bar'] = 'value'
>>> # Adding 'bar' kicks the least-recently-used key off the Shelf
... len(myshelf)


Tick Tock supports Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.
