What?

Fast and simple in-memory caching.

Why?

Because sometimes you need straight-forward, reliable, and low-latency caching.

Installation

npm install kash

And then import it:

// using es modules
import kash from 'kash'
 
// common.js
const kash = require('kash').default
 
// AMD
// I've forgotten but it should work.

Or use script tags and globals.

<script src="https://unpkg.com/kash"></script>

And then grab it off the global like so:

const kash = kash.default

Synopsis

setTimeout(function() {
  console.log(kash.get('foo'));
}, 101);
 
kash.set('foo', 'bar', 100);
 
console.log(kash.get('foo'));

Will print the following in the console:

bar
null

API
