a library to simplify and organize caching.

Caching library to simplify and organize caching.

  • I18n (seperate caches by locale / expires all locales)
  • Generation based (your able expire all caches of one type)
  • Simultanouse caching (handle multiple processes trying to write same expensive cache at once)
  • Dependent caches (x caches result of cache z+y -> z changes -> x changes)
  • Hashed keys (optional -> short/unreadable)
  • Global cache_version (expire everything Cachy cached, but not e.g. sessions)
  • works out of the box with Rails
  • works with pure Memcache and Moneta(-> Tokyo Cabinet / CouchDB / S3 / Berkeley DB / DataMapper / Memory store)
