tlru

Time aware least recently used TLRU cache for Node.JS

Small (~ 70 lines of TypeScript), fast (extends native Map class, maintaining the same speed for set, get and has operations), memory efficient (don't uses an internal linked-list for LRU, but instead uses just one timer per class instance via fun-dispatcher and proactively performs cache eviction - so great for caching large objects)

Usage as LRU cache

TLRU may be seen as regular LRU cache where all cached items have the same maxAge as whole cache, and, effectively, this library can be used as efficient LRU cache:

const { TLRU } = require('tlru')

const lru = new TLRU({ defaultLRU: true, maxStoreSize: 2 });

lru.set('a', 1);
lru.set('b', 2);
expect(lru.get('a')).toBe(1);
lru.delete('a');
lru.set('c', 1);
lru.set('d', 1);

// TLRU prunes cache lazily, so, need to give some time
setImmediate(() => {
  expect([...lru.keys()]).toEqual(['c', 'd']);
});

// Peek item without affecting it's LRU rating
lru.get('a', false /* this is the flag */);

// all native `Map` methods are here
lru.delete('a');
console.log([...lru.entries()]); // [[key, value], ...]

// Serializes to JSON, sorted by LRU rating
console.log(JSON.stringify(lru)); // [[key1, value1], [key2, value2], ...]

See more examples at __tests__/lru.test.ts

Usage as TLRU

Each item in cache can have its own TTU (time to usage or time to live).

const { TLRU } = require('tlru')

const lru = new TLRU({ maxStoreSize: 4, maxAgeMs: 1000 });

lru.set('a', 1, 500);
lru.set('b', 2, 700);
lru.set('c', 3); // default TTU = maxAgeMs

setTimeout(() => {
    expect(lru.has('a')).toBeFalsy();
    expect(lru.get('b')).toBe(2);
    expect(lru.has('c')).toBeTruthy();
    expect(lru.size).toBe(2);
}, 600);

setTimeout(() => {
    expect(lru.has('b')).toBeFalsy();
    expect(lru.has('c')).toBeTruthy();
    expect(lru.size).toBe(1);
}, 800);

Items can be revived to original TTU on getting, so, you will have LRU/TRLU hybrid:

const { TLRU } = require('tlru')

const lru = new TLRU({ maxStoreSize: 4, maxAgeMs: 1000 });
lru.set('a', 1, 500);
lru.set('b', 2, 700);
lru.set('c', 3); // default TTU = maxAgeMs

setTimeout(() => {
    expect(lru.has('a')).toBeFalsy();
    expect(lru.get('b', true /* revive flag - reset TTU */)).toBe(2); // 'b' got new 700 ms of life
    expect(lru.size).toBe(2);
}, 600);

setTimeout(() => {
    expect(lru.has('b')).toBeTruthy();
    expect(lru.has('c')).toBeFalsy(); // should be evicted by cache maxAgeMs default
    expect(lru.size).toBe(1);
}, 1200);

setTimeout(() => {
    expect(lru.size).toBe(0);
}, 1500);
