Prisma cache middleware

Prisma is one of the greatest ORMs for Node.js with lot of features, with this middleware you can cache your database queries into the Redis (one of the fastest in-memory databases for caching) and reduce your database queries. You need to have pre-installed redis server in order to work with this module.


npm i prisma-cache-middleware

Basic Example

import { PrismaClient } from '@prisma/client'
import prismaCacheMiddleware from 'prisma-cache-middleware';

const prisma = new PrismaClient();

    redisOptions: {                    
        host: 'localhost',             
        port: 6379                     
    instances: [{                      
        model: 'Users',                
        action: 'findFirst',           
        ttl: 20,                       
        keyPrefix: 'myCache'             
        model: 'Users',
        action: 'findMany',

export default prisma;
