Cacheable is a wrapper method for standard queries. It stores each query result under a unique key based on the find type and parameters in the cache when performed. If the cached data already exists, it will use it instead of querying the database again.
Cache is automatically wiped out for a model during the afterSave and afterDelete of that model. You will have to manually clear the cache for deepfinds however.
You must have the clear_cache plugin by Ceeram installed in order for this to work.
App_Model or Model:
var $actsAs = array('Cacheable.Cacheable');
To use, simply substitute any instance of
Model->cache(). That's all there is to it.
$data = $this->Model->cache($type, [$queryOptions = array(), [$options = array()]])
- $type: the type of
Model->find()[first, all, list, custom, etc]
- $queryOptions: the options to pass to the
- $options: the
- duration: cache duration (default is '1 hour')
- update: forces the cached data to refresh (default false)
- Place deepfind cache into subfolders. When manually clearing the cache from a related model, this will allow only a subset of the cache to be cleared instead.
