LRU cache for node.js

npm Travis Coverage

Simple O(1) LRU cache implementation based on native Map class.

Installation

npm i modern-lru --save

API

LRU cache class is based on native Map so API is the same. Also you can safely use anything for keys, for example undefined, NaN or some object pointer.

Constructor

new LRU(limit[, iterable])

limit - cache keys limit, positive integer.

iterable - optional Array or other iterable object whose elements are key-value pairs (arrays with two elements, e.g. [[ 1, 'one' ],[ 2, 'two' ]]). Each key-value pair is added to the new LRU instance.

Properties

.size

The number of keys currently in the cache.

.limit

Cache keys limit in current instance

Methods

.clear()

Removes all key/value pairs from the LRU object.

.delete(key)

Removes any value associated to the key and returns the value that .has(key) would have previously returned. .has(key) will return false afterwards.

.entries()

Returns a new Iterator object that contains an array of [key, value] for each element in the LRU object in last usage order.

.forEach(callbackFn[, thisArg])

Calls callbackFn once for each key-value pair present in the LRU object, in last usage order. If a thisArg parameter is provided to forEach, it will be used as the this value for each callback.

.get(key)

Returns the value associated to the key, or undefined if there is none.

.has(key)

Returns a boolean asserting whether a value has been associated to the key in the LRU object or not.

.keys()

Returns a new Iterator object thet contains the keys for each element in the LRU object in last usage order.

.set(key, value)

Sets the value for the key in the LRU object. Returns the LRU object.

.values()

Returns a new Iterator object that contains the values for each element in the LRU object in last usage order.

[@@iterator]()

Returns a new Iterator object that contains an array of [key, value] for each element in the LRU object in last usage order.

Example

const LRU = require('./');
 
// lru cache with limit of 3 entries
const cache = new LRU(3);
 
console.log(cache.limit); // 3
console.log(cache.size); // 0 (elements count)
 
cache.set('first', 'first');
cache.set('second', 'second');
cache.set('third', 'third');
 
console.log(cache.get('second')); // second
console.log(cache); // LRU { 'second' => 'second', 'third' => 'third', 'first' => 'first' }
 
cache.set('fourth', 'fourth');
console.log(cache.has('first')); // false ("first" was evicted)
console.log(cache.get('fourth')); // fourth
 
// also it implements default Map
console.log(cache instanceof Map); // true
 
// so you can use `keys()` for example
console.log(Array.from(cache.keys()).join('')); // 'fourth, second, third'
 
// or use objects, as with Map
const myObject = { test: 5 };
cache.set(myObject, 'testme');
console.log(cache.has(myObject)); // true
console.log(cache.get(myObject)); // 'testme'
console.log(cache.get({ test: 5})); // undefined (different pointer)
 
cache.clear();
 
// also `undefined` and `NaN` are supported, as with Map
cache.set(undefined, 5);
cache.set(NaN, 10);
console.log(cache); // LRU { NaN => 10, undefined => 5 }

Alternatives

lru-fast - classic doubly-linked list based lru, superfast and memory efficient.

quick-lru - a little bit dirty with broken keys order, but supersimple and fast alternative, inspired by the hashlru algorithm.

Also some benchmarks here with more packages, but with no feature comparison.

install

npm i modern-lru
