cacheman-mongo

MongoDB standalone caching library for Node.JS and also cache engine for cacheman.

$ npm install cacheman-mongo
var CachemanMongo = require('cacheman-mongo');
var cache = new CachemanMongo();
 
// set the value 
cache.set('my key', { foo: 'bar' }, function (error) {
 
  if (error) throw error;
 
  // get the value 
  cache.get('my key', function (errorvalue) {
 
    if (error) throw error;
 
    console.log(value); //-> {foo:"bar"} 
 
    // delete entry 
    cache.del('my key', function (error){
      
      if (error) throw error;
 
      console.log('value deleted');
    });
 
  });
});

Create cacheman-mongo instance. options are mongo valid options including port, host, database and collection.

var options = { 
  port: 9999,
  host: '127.0.0.1',
  username: 'beto',
  password: 'my-p@ssw0rd'
  database: 'my-cache-db',
  collection: 'my-collection',
  compression: false
};
 
var cache = new CachemanMongo(options);

You can also pass a valid mongodb connection string as first arguments like this:

var options = {
  collection: 'account'
};
 
var cache = new CachemanMongo('mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017/blog', options);

Or pass a mongodb db instance directly as client:

MongoClient.connect('mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017/blog', function (errdb) {
  var cache = new CachemanMongo(db, { collection: 'account' });
 
  // or 
  cache = new CachemanMongo({ client: db, collection: 'account' });
});

MongoDB has a 16MB document size limit, and, currently, does not have built in support for compression. You can enable cache value compression for large Buffers by setting the compression options to true, this will use the native node zlib module to compress with gzip. It only compresses Buffers because of the complexity in correctly decompressing and deserializing the variety of data structures and string encodings.

Thanks to @Jared314 for adding this feature.

var cache = new Cache({ compression: true });
cache.set('test1', new Buffer("something big"), function (err) {...});
 

Stores or updates a value.

cache.set('foo', { a: 'bar' }, function (errvalue) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(value); //-> {a:'bar'} 
});

Or add a TTL(Time To Live) in seconds like this:

// key will expire in 60 seconds 
cache.set('foo', { a: 'bar' }, 60, function (errvalue) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(value); //-> {a:'bar'} 
});

Retreives a value for a given key, if there is no value for the given key a null value will be returned.

cache.get(function (errvalue) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(value);
});

Deletes a key out of the cache.

cache.del('foo', function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  // foo was deleted 
});

Clear the cache entirely, throwing away all values.

cache.clear(function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  // cache is now clear 
});
$ make test
