Build Status

Memo Decorator

This decorator applies memoization to a method of a class.

Usage

Apply the decorator to a method of a class. The cache is local for the method but shared among all instances of the class. Strongly recommend you to use this decorator only on pure methods.

Installation:

npm i memo-decorator --save

Signature

interface Memo {
  (resolver?: Resolver) => (target: any, key: string, descriptor: PropertyDescriptor): PropertyDescriptor
}
 
export interface Resolver {
  (...args: any[]): any;
}

Resolver is a function, which returns the key to be used for given set of arguments. For more information check lodash.

By default, the resolver will use the first argument of the method as the key.

Demo

import memo from './index';
 
class Qux {
  @memo()
  foo(a: number) {
    console.log('foo: called');
    return 42;
  }
 
  @memo(_ => 1)
  bar(a: number) {
    console.log('bar: called');
    return 42;
  }
}
 
const a = new Qux();
// Create a new cache entry and associate `1` with the result `42`.
a.foo(1);
// Do not invoke the original method `foo` because there's already a cache
// entry for the key `1` associated with the result of the method.
a.foo(1);
// Invoke the original `foo` because the cache doesn't contain an entry
// for the key `2`.
a.foo(2);
 
// Invoke `bar` and return the result `42` gotten from the original `bar` implementation.
a.bar(1);
// Does not invoke the original `bar` implementation because of the specified `resolver`
// which is passed to `memo`. For any arguments of the function, the resolver will return
// result `1` which will be used as the key.
a.bar(2);
 
const b = new Qux();
// Does not invoke the method `foo` because there's already an entry
// in the cache which associates the key `1` to the result `42` from the
// invocation of the method `foo` by the instance `a`.
b.foo(1);
 
// Outputs:
// foo: called
// foo: called
// bar: called
