stupid_cache: Stupidly simple memcached middleware for Rack

Description

Stupidly simple Rack middleware for caching responses with Memcached. It should be easy to hack and customize for your own caching/expiry policies (which may not be standards-compliant, but perhaps faster and more effective).

Use Rack::Cache if you want standards-compliant caching and expiry.

Features

Synopsis

In the Rackup configuration file for your Rack application:

Using memcache-client:

  use StupidCache, :cache => MemCache.new(%w(10.0.0.1 10.0.0.2))

Using memcached+libmemcached:

  use StupidCache, :cache => Memcached.new(%w(10.0.0.1 10.0.0.2))

Requirements

Your web server or cluster should also have at least one memcached instance running.

Only the set(key, value, expiry) and get(key) methods are used by StupidCache, so using or writing another compatible interface should be possible with minimal effort.

Install

You may install it via Rubygems on Rubyforge:

  gem install stupid_cache
