adds least-recently-used cache management and automatic data timeout to Python's Shelf class.
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 = ticktock.open('myshelf', timeout=60, maxsize=50) >>> myshelf['foo'] = 'value' >>> myshelf['foo'] 'value' >>> # Wait 60 seconds, then try again: ... myshelf['foo'] ... KeyError: 'foo' >>> len(myshelf) 50 >>> myshelf['bar'] = 'value' >>> # Adding 'bar' kicks the least-recently-used key off the Shelf ... len(myshelf) 50
Tick Tock supports Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.
