Dictionary with auto-expiring values for caching purposes
Python dictionary with key expiry time
OrderedTTLDict - behaves like an ordered dict you know. The methods items and values return a list of objects after purging expired objects. The method keys returns odict_keys as the parnet class, but it does so after purging expired keys. Python’s own OrderedDict and other dictionaries return a [dictionary views] whereas the methods here do not.
Use pytest to run the tests:
` make test `

This library contains fixes for his TTLDict class and my own OrderedTTLDict.
Without all those this work would not have been possible.
