Usage

var MemDB = require('memdb');
var Cache = require('level-live-cache');

var source = MemDB(); // should be something like a multilevel client
var cache = MemDB();

var db = Cache(source, cache);

db.put('foo', 'bar', function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  // this was written to the source and an in-memory cache

  db.get('foo', fucntion (err, value) {
    if (err) throw err;
    console.log(value); // => foo
    // this was read from the in-memory cache
  });
});

source.put('foo', 'baz', function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  // the source changed, but the cache was updated too
  setTimeout(function () {
    client.get('foo', function (err, value) {
      if (err) throw err;
      console.log(value); // => baz
    });
  }, 500);
});

API

Cache(source, cache)

Return a new levelup style db that caches source in cache and keeps both up to date.

This will install level-live-stream on the source, if you didn't already do that.

Installation

With npm do:

npm install level-live-cache
