Python Simple Cache - scache

Installation

$ [sudo] pip install scache

How it works

scache uses .json files in the data subdirectory by default. If they exist, they are overwritten. If they do not, they are created.

./data/<key>.json by default

Get Started

'''Optional parameters:
path: (string) Path where to store the .json cache data.
    defaults to './data/'
debug: (boolean) Prints debug information such as whether or not keys were found.
    defaults to False
'''
from scache import SCache
scache = SCache()
scache.set('key', 'value')

Functions

function __doc__
scache.get(key) Gets cache value.
scache.get(key, value) Sets cache value.
scache.get(key, default) Get cache value. Return default if not found
scache.rm(key) Remove cache by key
scache.exists(key) returns True if key exists, else returns False
scache.empty() Clears the entire cache.

Examples

>>> import scache
>>> scache.set("key", {'test': 1})
>>> scache.get("key")
"{'test': 1}"
>>> scache.exists("key")
True
>>> scache.rm("key")
>>> scache.empty() # clears entire cache
