A simple HTTP proxy to handle cache
A web application that proxies HTTP requests to another HTTP server, caching the results if asked to.
To start the cache on port 9201 with a cache expiring every 2 seconds, type:
$ httpcache --local localhost:9201 --distant localhost:9200 --cache localhost:11211 --cache-timeout 2
Specify the backend
You can also use a different backend if that makes sense for you. You can use one of the backends exposed by chaussette. The default backend is "fastgevent"; you may want to disable this if you want to use the streaming feature of your proxied server.
You can send information to a statsd server each time a request is proxied, if it hits the proxied server or if it hits the cache:
$ httpcache --statsd localhost:8125
To install httpcache, do so using pip:
$ pip install httpcache
