Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including route-cache with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var routeCache = require("route-cache")

route-cache v0.4.1

express middleware for caching your routes

Route-Cache

Simple middleware for Express route caching with a given TTL (in seconds)

Build Status NPM Version Downloads

NPM js-standard-style

Make your routes do this ->dodging

Why?

  • makes hard-working routes super-fast, under heavy-load, see Load Tests
  • easy to use and fork for your needs
  • works with gzip compression

Install

npm install route-cache

Test

npm test

How to use

var routeCache = require('route-cache');

// cache route for 20 seconds
app.get('/index', routeCache.cacheSeconds(20), function(req, res){
  // do your dirty work here...
  console.log('you will only see this every 20 seconds.');
  res.send('this response will be cached');
});

By default req.originalUrl is used as the cache key so every URL is cached separately.

You can set a custom key by passing a second argument to cacheSeconds.

routeCache.cacheSeconds(20, 'my-custom-cache-key')

You can set a dynamic key from the req and res objects by passing a function.

// Cache authenticated and unauthenticated responses separately
routeCache.cacheSeconds(20, function(req, res) {
  return req.originalUrl + '|' + res.locals.signedIn
})

If you return false the response will not be cached.

// Only cache unauthenticated responses
routeCache.cacheSeconds(20, function(req, res) {
  if (res.locals.signedIn) { return false }

  return req.originalUrl
})

Delete a cached route

routeCache.removeCache('/index');

Future plans / todos

  • client-side Cache-Control
  • support for distributed caches (redis or memcache)
