Simple Map Cache
This module a very simple key/value storage for node, so you can cache any operation, function or call results. The cache map persist after the module is reloaded (the map is stored in a JSON file)
This used to be part of my module simple-fetch-cache, but I decided to extract it and publish it on its own. It doesn't have any external dependencies and it uses the native
Map object to track the entries.
You can install with [npm]:
$ npm install --save simple-map-cache
Please look at the index.test.js file to check how the module can be used, but in a nutshell these are the methods available:
set, get, del, clear
|set||Add new entry to the cache. ie
|get||Retrieves entry from the cache.
|del||Removes entry from the cache|
|clear||Wipes out all the entries from the cache|
Time to live (TTL)
All the requests cached in memory will persist there as long as the process in running. Nevertheless if you require the cache to expire after X miliseconds, you can pass it as a second parameter. ie:
// It will disappear after 100 msec.> const cache => cache
