vuex-cache

Cache dispatched actions and prevent repeated requests and heavy actions.

Compatibility

  • Map and Promise are required (you can use polyfills, like @babel/polyfill);
  • Any Vue version, since vuex-cache just deals with Vuex;
  • Vuex versions 1, 2 and 3.

Installation

vuex-cache is published in the NPM registry and can be installed using any compatible package manager.

npm install vuex-cache --save
 
# For Yarn use the command below. 
yarn add vuex-cache

Import createCache factory and use on Vuex's plugins.

import Vue from 'vue';
import Vuex, { Store } from 'vuex';
import createCache from 'vuex-cache';
 
const store = new Store({
  plugins: [createCache()],
  ...
});

Installation on Nuxt.js

Only use it if you're not using Classic Mode.

Create a module on plugins to setup vuex-cache. Call vuex-cache with your options, then call returned value with store on onNuxtReady event.

~/plugins/vuex-cache.js

import createVuexCache from 'vuex-cache';
 
export default ({ store }) => {
  const options = {
    timeout: 2 * 60 * 60 * 1000 // Equal to 2 hours in milliseconds.
  };
 
  const setupVuexCache = createVuexCache(options);
 
  window.onNuxtReady(() => setupVuexCache(store));
};

Then just add this plugin to your nuxt configuration. Like the example below.

~/nuxt.config.js

module.exports = {
  ...,
  plugins: [
    ...,
    { src: '~/plugins/vuex-cache.js', ssr: false },
  ]
};

Usage

After install you can use cache property to call cache methods.

const store = new Store({
  ...,
  actions: {
    'FETCH_USER': async (_, id) => {
      const response = await fetch(baseURL + '/user/' + id);
      const { users } = await response.json();
      return users;
    }
  }
});
 
store.cache.dispatch('FETCH_USER', 1);
//=> Promise { User }

API

createCache

The default exported factory to create Vuex's store plugin. It define cache property on Store instances.

import { Store } from 'vuex';
import createCache from 'vuex-cache';
 
const store = new Store({
  plugins: [
    createCache()
  ]
})

cacheAction

A named exported function to enhance actions and define cache property on ActionContext instances.

import { cacheAction } from 'vuex-cache';
 
// ...
 
const actions = {
  'FETCH_STARGAZERS': cacheAction(
    ({ cache, commit }, payload) => (
      cache.dispatch('FETCH_REPOSITORIES')
        .then((repos) => Promise.all(repos.map(getStargazers)))
        .then((stargazers) => {
          commit('STARGAZERS', [].concat(...stargazers));
        })
    )
  ),
 
  'SET_STARGAZERS': (context, payload) => { ... }
}

store.cache.dispatch

Dispatches an action if it's not cached and set it on cache, otherwise it returns cached Promise.

It uses action name and payload as cache key.

store.cache.dispatch('user/GET_USER');
//=> Promise { User }
 
// Returns value without dispatching the action again.
store.cache.dispatch('user/GET_USER');
//=> Promise { User }

store.cache.has

Check if an action is cached. Returns true if action is cached and false otherwise.

store.cache.has('user/GET_USER');
//=> true
 
store.cache.has('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219);
//=> false

store.cache.delete

Delete an action from cache. Returns true if action is deleted and false otherwise.

store.cache.delete('user/GET_USER');
//=> true
 
store.cache.delete('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219);
//=> false

store.cache.clear

Clear the cache, delete all actions from it. Returns true if cache is cleared and false otherwise.

store.cache.clear();
//=> true

mapCacheActions

Create component methods that dispatch a cached action.

import { mapCacheActions } from 'vuex-cache';
 
export default {
  name: 'Users',
  methods: {
    ...mapCacheActions(['FETCH_REPOSITORY']),
    ...mapCacheActions('user', ['GET_USER']),
  },
  async mounted() {
    this.GET_USER();
    this.FETCH_REPOSITORY(219, {
      timeout: 30000
    });
  }
}

Payload

The payload value is undefined as default and supports functions, primitive values and JSON parseable objects.

store.cache.dispatch, store.cache.has and store.cache.delete supports payload object as argument.

store.cache.dispatch({
  type: 'FETCH_REPOSITORY',
  payload: 198
});
//=> Promise { Repository }
 
store.cache.has({
  type: 'FETCH_REPOSITORY',
  payload: 198
});
//=> true
 
store.cache.delete({
  type: 'FETCH_REPOSITORY',
  payload: 198
});
//=> true

Timeout

timeout option is 0 as default and define cache duration is milliseconds.

0 means it has no defined duration, no timeout.

const store = new Store({
  plugins: [
    createCache({ timeout: 10000 })
  ],
  ...
});

After milliseconds defined in timeout option an action is expired from cache.

// This dispatches the action and set it on cache.
store.cache.dispatch('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219);
//=> Promise { Repository }
 
store.cache.has('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219);
//=> true
 
setTimeout(() => {
 
  // It returns false because the action is expired.
  store.cache.has('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219);
  //=> false
 
  // This dispatches the action again because the action is expired.
  store.cache.dispatch('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219);
  //=> Promise { Repository }
}, 10000)

Store's timeout can be overwritten by dispatch timeout option in Dispatch Options or in payload.

store.cache.dispatch('FETCH_REPOSITORY', 219, {
  timeout: 30000
});
 
// OR
 
store.cache.dispatch({
  type: 'FETCH_REPOSITORY',
  payload: 219,
  timeout: 30000
});
