async-lru-cache

AsyncLRUCache is an async cache that makes it a bit easier to use caching in nodejs. It works by taking a callback argument and queueing these callbacks while your function is performing the IO to get the value.

Callbacks can take any number of aruments and with setContext you can also specify the context that has to be applied to the callback (as second argument)

For any details as to how it works, look into lib/cache.js or example.js (also shown below).

examples

var Cache        = require('./lib/cache.js'),
    http        = require('http'),
    hostCache    = new Cache(1000),
    stszCache    = new Cache(1000);


/**
 * Function with single argument callback
 * Connects to a host and returns true or false wether a connection was made
 *
 * @param key Hostname
 * @param Function Callback
 */
function checkHost(host,callback) {

    if(hostCache.get(host,callback)) {
        console.log('checkHost: Resolved %s from hostCache...',host);
        return true;
    }

    console.log('checkHost: Looking up %s...',host);

    var options = {
        host: host,
        port: 80,
        path: '/',
        method: 'GET'
    };

    var req = http.request(options, function(res) {
        var data = '';
        res.setEncoding('utf8');

        res.on('data', function (chunk) {
            data += chunk;
        });
        res.on('end', function () {
            hostCache.set(host,true);
        });
        res.on('error',function() {
            hostCache.set(host,false);
        });
    });
    req.on('error',function() {
        hostCache.set(host,false);
    });
    req.end();
