Pycachu

A tool to provide a LRU cache on files.

It has been created to store gigabytes of Thumbor thumbnails on a DigitalOcean server.

Usage

from pycachu import Pycachu

# Initialize the cache
# The dir has to exist
p = Pycachu('/storage/pycachu', 20 * (1024 ** 3))

# Get a file
f = p.get('/some/file')

if f is not None:
    yield f
    f.close()
else:
    content = generate_file_content()
    p.put('/some/file', content)
    content.seek(0)
    yield content
    content.close()

Performance

The performance is not exceptional, but operations basically take a constant time independently of the number of files in the cache, which is not too bad.

Rough benchmarking gave about 170 get per second.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
