Cement defines a cache interface called ICache, but does not implement caching by default. The documentation below references usage based on the interface and not the full capabilities of any given implementation.
The following cache handlers are included and maintained with Cement:
Please reference the ICache interface documentation for writing your own cache handler.
For this example we use the Memcached extension, which requires the
pylibmc library to be installed, as well as a Memcached server running on
[myapp] extensions = memcached [cache.memcached] # comma separated list of hosts to use hosts = 127.0.0.1 # time in milliseconds expire_time = 300
from cement.core.foundation import CementApp with CementApp('myapp') as app: # run the application app.run() # set a cached value app.cache.set('my_key', 'my value') # get a cached value app.cache.get('my_key') # delete a cached value app.cache.delete('my_key') # delete the entire cache app.cache.purge()
