View Source CacheMe

Cache functions without hassle.

quick-start

Quick Start

Add cache_me to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

{:cache_me, "~> 0.0.1"}

Then add use CacheMe to any module using caching and @cache true to any function you would like to cache.

Use CacheMe.uncached(<module>, <function>, <args>) to skip the cache. The syntax is the same as apply/3.

example

Example

defmodule Example do
  use CacheMe
  require Logger

  @url_env "MY_AUTH_URL"
  @url_default "https://example.com/"

  @cache true
  @spec url :: URI.t()
  def url do
    url = System.get_env(@url_env)

    if is_binary(url) do
      URI.parse(url)
    else
      Logger.warn("`#{@url_env}` not set, defaulting to: '#{@url_default}'.")
      URI.parse(@url_default)
    end
  end
end

Use:

iex(1)> Example.url

16:30:03.556 [warning] `MY_AUTH_URL` not set, defaulting to: 'https://example.com/'.
%URI{
  authority: "example.com",
  fragment: nil,
  host: "example.com",
  path: "/",
  port: 443,
  query: nil,
  scheme: "https",
  userinfo: nil
}
iex(2)> Example.url
%URI{
  authority: "example.com",
  fragment: nil,
  host: "example.com",
  path: "/",
  port: 443,
  query: nil,
  scheme: "https",
  userinfo: nil
}

The Example.url/0 logic is only executed once.

It is possible to skip the cache using CacheMe.uncached(<module>, <function>, <args>). In this case CacheMe.uncached(Example, :url, []).

Continuing from above:

iex(3)> CacheMe.uncached(Example, :url, [])

16:30:17.690 [warning] `MY_AUTH_URL` not set, defaulting to: 'https://example.com/'.
%URI{
  authority: "example.com",
  fragment: nil,
  host: "example.com",
  path: "/",
  port: 443,
  query: nil,
  scheme: "https",
  userinfo: nil
}
