A simple page cache for Wagtail using the Django cache middleware.
pip install wagtail-cache
Why Wagtail Cache?
Django has a robust cache middleware that already has the functionality needed to cache web pages effectively. But turning the cache middleware on will blindly cache every request and does not work well with a wagtail site.
Wagtail Cache provides a decorator that works well with wagtail pages to appropriately cache and serve them using Django's cache middleware.
The end result is ultra-fast page serving that requires zero database hits to serve cached pages. Other solutions such as template caching still require database hits for wagtail to serve a page.
This cache feature was originally part of coderedcms and has been in use successfully on live production sites. Eventually the coderedcms cache will be replaced with wagtail-cache after it has been tested.
