NodeJS base cache optimised for medium to large data files.
The cached data is stored in local files honoring a maximum storage capacity.
Files gets evicted following a LRU policy and a minimum TTL policy. A cached entry can only be evicted if it has passed more than TTL milliseconds since it last hit. You can disable the TTL policy by specifying 0 milliseconds, otherswise defaults to one hour.
Entries to be cached can include a "meta" data object for user define metadata that must be stored along the cached entries.
- the cache is not designed to work for several processes accessing to it at the same time.
- setting the same key more than once if the key is already cached will just be ignored.
var cache = '/my/cache/dir'ttl: 1000 * 60 * 60 // defaults to 1 hour.maxSize: 1024 * 1024 * 256 // defaults to 256Mb.;cache;cache;
