Tiny LRU

Least Recently Used cache for Client or Server.

Using the factory

import {lru} from "tiny-lru";
const cache = lru(max, ttl = 0, resetTtl = false);

Using the Class

import {LRU} from "tiny-lru";
const cache = new LRU(max, ttl = 0, resetTtl = false);
import {LRU} from "tiny-lru";
class MyCache extends LRU {}

Interoperability

Lodash provides a memoize function with a cache that can be swapped out as long as it implements the right interface. See the lodash docs for more on memoize.

Example

_.memoize.Cache = lru().constructor;
const memoized = _.memoize(myFunc);
memoized.cache.max = 10;

Testing

Tiny-LRU has 100% code coverage with its tests.

API

Properties

first

Item in "first" or "bottom" position; default is null

Example

const cache = lru();

cache.first; // null - it's a new cache!

last

Item in "last" or "top" position; default is null

Example

const cache = lru();

cache.last; // null - it's a new cache!

max

Max items to hold in cache; default is 1000

Example

const cache = lru(500);

cache.max; // 500

resetTtl

Resets item.expiry with each set() if true; default is false

Example

const cache = lru(500, 5*6e4, true);

cache.resetTtl; // true

size

Number of items in cache

Example

const cache = lru();

cache.size; // 0 - it's a new cache!

ttl

Milliseconds an item will remain in cache; lazy expiration upon next get() of an item

Example

const cache = lru(100, 3e4);

cache.ttl; // 30000;
