SYCache.h Added UIImage category
SYCache.m Ignore nil objects



Simple in memory and on disk cache. It's backed by an NSCache in memory, so it automatically purges itself when memory gets low. Purged memory keys will automatically be loaded from disk the next time the are requested.


The API is simple.

- (id)objectForKey:(NSString *)key;
- (void)objectForKey:(NSString *)key usingBlock:(void (^)(id object))block;
- (void)setObject:(id)object forKey:(NSString *)key;

See SYCache.h for the full list of methods.

Adding to Your Project

Simply add SYCache.h and SYCache.m to your project.


If you are including SYCache in a project that uses Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) enabled, you will need to set the -fno-objc-arc compiler flag on all of the SYCache source files. To do this in Xcode, go to your active target and select the "Build Phases" tab. In the "Compiler Flags" column, set -fno-objc-arc for each of the SYCache source files.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
