NAME ^

Mason::Plugin::Cache - 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 -->
    % }}
