lolcache

Stupid simple asynchronous in-memory caching layer for node.

I got tired of writing this over and over so I made it into a module.

install

npm install lolcache

usage

var lol = require('lolcache');

var kittens = function (cb) {
  // some async database call or whatever
  studyKittens(function (kittenData) {
    cb({
      lol: kittenData
    });  
  });
}

var kittenCache = new lol.Cache({
  ttl: 2000,     // time in milliseconds to keep data in memory
  data: kittens  // function to call when cache is stale
});

setInterval(function () {
  kittenCache.get(console.log);
}, 1000);
