Astro Cache Service (Redis)

This service reads from env variables to connect from redis store. This service supports cluster and simple redis setup.


cacheHost // required, default to,

cachePort // required, default to 6379

cacheCluster // optional, 1 - true, 0 - false

cachePassword // optional

For cluster, give the multiple host comma seperated.

Or you can provide these, configuration in configure function

This library will first check env variables, then user provided configuration. If both not found it will use default values

Cache Usage

const cache = require('@astro-my/cache');



  cacheHost: '',
  cachePort: 6379


Retrieving Items From The Cache

The get method on the Cache is used to retrieve items from the cache.

const value = async cache.get('key');

Checking For Item Existence

The has method may be used to determine if an item exists in the cache. This method will return false if the value is null or false:

const exists = async cache.has('key');

Retrieve & Store

Sometimes you may wish to retrieve an item from the cache, but also store a default value if the requested item doesn't exist. For example, you may wish to retrieve all users from the cache or, if they don't exist, retrieve them from the database and add them to the cache.

const exists = async cache.remember('key', seconds, () => { return Users.fetch(); });

If the item does not exist in the cache, the Closure passed to the remember method will be executed and its result will be placed in the cache with ttl of seconds passed as second argument.

Retrieve & Delete

If you need to retrieve an item from the cache and then delete the item, you may use the pop method. Like the get method, null will be returned if the item does not exist in the cache:

const value = async cache.pop('key');

Retrive fields associated with particular key

Returns the values associated with the specified fields in the hash stored at key.

const values = async cache.multiget('key', [...fieldKey (String)]);

Storing data in cache

You may use the put method to store items in the cache. When you place an item in the cache, you need to specify the number of seconds for which the value should be cached: P.S: all expiry values are in seconds. If not provided, the key will be stored permenantely

const stored = async cache.put('key', value, expiry);

The method will return true if the item is stored to the cache

Store If Not Present

The put method will only add the item to the cache if it does not already exist in the cache store. The method will return true if the item is actually added to the cache. Otherwise, the method will return false:

const stored = async cache.put('key', value, expiry);

Store Set under particular key

Sets the specified fields to their respective values in the hash stored at key. This command overwrites any specified fields already existing in the hash. If key does not exist, a new key holding a hash is created.

cache.multiset('key', { field1: 'value1', field2: 'value2' }, expiry);

Removing Items From The Cache

You may remove items from the cache using the destroy method:
