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 `
Credits and Thanks:
- mailgun for expiringdict
- Thomas Kemmer for https://github.com/tkem/cachetools
and for Jyrki Muukkonen for ttldict published in https://github.com/jvtm/ttldict.
This library contains fixes for his TTLDict class and my own OrderedTTLDict.
Without all those this work would not have been possible.
