NAME ^

Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent - AnyEvent Compatible Memcached Client

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent;

    my $memd = Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent->new({
        servers => [ '127.0.0.1:11211' ],
        compress_threshold => 10_000,
        namespace => 'myapp.',
    });

    $memd->get( $key, sub {
        my ($value) = @_;
        warn "got $value for $key";
    });

    $memd->disconnect();

    # use ketama algorithm instead of the traditional one
    my $memd = Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent->new({
        ...
        selector_class => 'Ketama',
        # or, selector => $object 
    });

    # use binary protocol instead of text
    my $memd = Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent->new({
        ...
        protocol_class => 'Binary',
        # or, protocol => $object,
    });

DESRIPTION ^

WARNING: BETA QUALITY CODE!

This module implements the memcached protocol as a AnyEvent consumer, and it implments both for text and binary protocols.

RATIONALE ^

There's another alternative AnyEvent memcached client, AnyEvent::Memcached which is perfectly fine, and I have nothing against you using that module. I just have some specific itches to scratch:

Prerequisites

This module, Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent, requires the bare minimum prerequisites to install. AnyEvent::Memcached requires AnyEvent::Connection and Object::Event ;) Those modules are fine, I just don't use them, so I don't want them.

Binary Protocol

I was in the mood to implement the binary protocol. I don't believe it's a requirement to do anything, so this is purely a whim. There's nothing that requires binary protocol in the wild, so it has no practactical advantages. I just wanted to implement it :)

Cache::Memcached Interface

In general, this module follows the interface of Cache::Memcached.

So choose according to your needs. If you for some reason don't want AnyEvent::Connection and Object::Event, want a binary protocol, and like to stick with Cache::Memcached interface (relatively speaking), then use this module. Otherwise, read the docs for each module, and choose the one that fits your needs.

METHODS ^

All methods interacting with a memcached server which can take a callback function can also take a condvar instead. For example,

    $memd->get( "foo", sub {
        my $value = shift;
    } );

is equivalent to

    my $cv = AE::cv {
        my $value = $_[0]->recv;
    };
    $memd->get( "foo", $cv );
    # optionally, call $cv->recv here.

new(%args)

auto_reconnect => $max_attempts

Set to 0 to disable auto-reconnecting

compress_threshold => $number
selector => $object

The selector is an object responsible for selecting the appropriate Memcached server to store a particular key. This object MUST implement the following methods:

    $object->set_server( @servernames );
    my $handle = $object->get_handle( $key );

By default if this argument is not specified, a selector object will automatically be created using the value of the selector_class argument.

selector_class => $class_name_or_fragment

Specifies the selector class to be instantiated. The default value is "Traditional".

If the class name is preceded by a single '+', then that class name with the '+' removed will be used as the class name. Otherwise, the prefix "Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent::Selector::" will be added to the value ("Traditional" would be transformed to "Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent::Selector::Traditional")

namespace => $namespace
procotol => $object

The protocol is an object responsible for handling the actual talking to the memcached servers. This object MUST implement all of the memcached interface supported by Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent

By default if this argument is not specified, a protocol object will automatically be created using the value of the protocol_class argument.

protocol_class => $classname

Specifies the protocol class to be instantiated. The default value is "Text".

If the class name is preceded by a single '+', then that class name with the '+' removed will be used as the class name. Otherwise, the prefix "Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent::Protocol::" will be added to the value ("Text" would be transformed to "Cache::Memcached::AnyEvent::Protocol::Text")

reconnect_delay => $seconds

Amount of time to wait between reconnect attempts

servers => \@servers

List of servers to use.

%args can also be a hashref.

auto_reconnect([$bool]);

Get/Set auto_reconnect flag.

add($key, $value[, $exptime, $noreply], $cb->($rc))

add_server( $host_port )

append($key, $value, $cb->($rc))

connect()

Explicitly connects to each server given. You DO NOT need to call this explicitly.

decr($key, $delta[, $initial], $cb->($value))

delete($key, $cb->($rc))

disconnect()

flush_all()

get($key, $cb->($value))

get_handle( $host_port )

get_multi(\@keys, $cb->(\%values));

incr($key, $delta[, $initial], $cb->($value))

prepend($key, $value, $cb->($rc));

protocol($object)

replace($key, $value[, $exptime, $noreply], $cb->($rc))

remove($key, $cb->($rc))

Alias to delete

servers()

set($key, $value[, $exptime, $noreply], $cb->($rc))

stats($cmd, $cb->(\%stats))

version( $cb->(\%result) )

TODO ^

Binary stats is not yet implemented.

CONTRIBUTING ^

Contribution is welcome, but please make sure to follow this guideline:

Please send changes AND tests.

In case of changes that supposedly fixes incorrect behavior, you MUST provide me with a failing test case. How should we know if you were hallucinating or just plain stupid if you can't reproduce it yourself?

Please send code, not an essay.

Please don't waste time trying to explain in a 10K email for stuff you can write in 10 lines of code.

I'm sorry, but I'm usually not interested in your opinion until I see some code. Writing essays to describe a software problem is stupid.

Please avoid emailing patches.

If at all possible, please use github pull requests instead of emailing me patches. Patches are stupid.

Please refer to the META.yml file for the repository location.

So to summarize, contribution is welcome, but please don't be stupid. If you can't follow the guideline, you will not be taken seriously.
