mongoose cachebox

Build Status NPM version

Caching mongoose queries easier with cacheman that supports in-memory, and Redis engines.

Instalation

$ npm install mongoose-cachebox

Usage

var mongoose = require('mongoose');

var options = {
  cache: true, // start caching
  ttl: 30 // 30 seconds
};

// adding mongoose cachebox
mongooseCachebox(mongoose, options);

Then later any find query will be cached for 60 seconds.

You can also enable caching programatically by using the cache method directly from the query instance:

var Person = mongoose.model('Person');

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache('50s') // cache for 50 seconds
.exec(function (err, docs) { /* ... */

  if (err) throw error;

  console.log(docs.ttl) // time left for expiration in ms
  console.log(docs.stored); // timestamp this query was cached
  console.log(docs);

});

API

This plugin will add two more methods to a mongoose query instance cache and ttl.

query.cache([cached], [ttl])

Both parameters cache and ttl are optional, the first one is for enable caching the second is for specifying the cache expiration (time to live).

For start caching just call the cache method:

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache() // will enable caching with 60 seconds ttl
.exec(function (err, docs) {
  /* .... */
});

The above is equivalent to this:

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache(true) // start caching with 60 seconds ttl
.exec(function (err, docs) {
  /* .... */
});

You can specify the ttl (time to live) value directly:

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache(10) // cache for 10 seconds
.exec(function (err, docs) {
  /* .... */
});

The above is equivalent to this:

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache(true, 10) // enable caching with 10 seconds ttl
.exec(function (err, docs) {
  /* .... */
});

And to disable caching for specific query just pass false:

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache(false) // stop caching this query
.exec(function (err, docs) {
  /* .... */
});

query.ttl(ttl)

By default the ttl value is 60000 (60 seconds) but you can use the ttl method to specify a different value:

Person.find({ active: true })
.cache() // cache query
.ttl(10) // caching for 10 seconds
.exec(function (err, docs) {
  /* .... */
});

Redis

By default mongoose-cachebox will use the memory engine to cache queries but it can cache queries using Redis by specifying redis engine when initializing the plugin:

var mongoose = require('mongoose');

var options = {
  engine: 'redis',
  host: '127.0.0.1',
  port: '6379',
  password: 'secret'
};

// adding mongoose cachebox
mongooseCachebox(mongoose, options);

This module use cacheman for the caching magic, so check out the project for more details and options.
