Mason::Plugin::Cache(3) Provide component cache object and filter

VERSION

version 0.05

SYNOPSIS


my $result = $.cache->get('key');
if (!defined($result)) {
... compute $result ...
$.cache->set('key', $result, '5 minutes');
}
...
% $.Cache('key2', '1 hour') {{
<!-- this will be cached for an hour -->
% }}

DESCRIPTION

Adds a "cache" method and "Cache" filter to access a cache (CHI) object with a namespace unique to the component.

INTERP PARAMETERS

cache_defaults
Hash of parameters passed to cache constructor. Defaults to

    driver=>'File', root_dir => 'DATA_DIR/cache'

which will create a basic file cache under Mason's data directory.

cache_root_class
Class used to create a cache. Defaults to CHI.

COMPONENT CLASS METHODS

cache
Returns a new cache object with the namespace set to the component's path. Parameters to this method, if any, are combined with cache_defaults and passed to the cache_root_class constructor. The cache object is memoized when no parameters are passed.

    my $result = $.cache->get('key');

REQUEST METHODS

cache
Same as calling "cache" on the current component class. This usage will be familiar to Mason 1 users.

    my $result = $m->cache->get('key');

FILTERS

Cache ($key, $options, [%cache_params])
Caches the content using "$self->cache" and the supplied cache $key.

$options is a scalar or hash reference. If a scalar, it is treated as the "expires_in" duration and passed as the third argument to "set". If it is a hash reference, it may contain name/value pairs for both "get" and "set".

%cache_params, if any, are passed to "$self->cache".

    % $.Cache($my_key, '1 hour') {{
      <!-- this will be cached for an hour -->
    % }}
    % $.Cache($my_key, { expire_if => sub { $.refresh } }, driver => 'RawMemory') {{
      <!-- this will be cached until $.refresh is true -->
    % }}

If neither $key nor $options are passed, the key is set to 'Default' and the cache never expires.

    % $.Cache() {{
      <!-- cache this forever, or until explicitly removed -->
    % }}
