simple to use nedb cache layer with restful api routing
restify-nedb was built to give you restful api resources for client side application frameworks like
knockout.js as well as give you a simple file/memory based cache utilizing nedb. (ps, i love nedb, you should too.) If you haven't already checked it out, maybe you want to use it separate of all of this extra stuff, do it. It's like sqlite, with a subset of mongodb's api. Really neat.

||DataStore||allow for outside nedb processes to be restified. tip:
||String||defines the first route path, for instance
||String||not preferred, as a rule i feel these aren't the best idea for your api, last thing you want is fragmentation in your api|
||Array||excludes keys/values from the api, good for things like
||Array||middlewares, ie passport authentication, logging, analytics|
||Boolean||whether or not keep an in-memory store or a file based persistant store, defaults to
||String||file name for your nedb filestore|
||String||bit easier to change the path and view the contents instead of digging through
||Number||if set to
nedbinstance going, use this to create one -- otherwise pass it into your options object.
if (limit=20)then it will only return 20 objects, etc.
POST / PUT
_stalein your body/json will act as an override to
stale, say you need some things to last longer/shorter than other cached items
