memcache-client

A pure ruby library for accessing memcached.

Source:

github.com/mperham/memcache-client

Installing memcache-client

Just install the gem:

$ sudo gem install memcache-client

Using memcache-client

With one server:

CACHE = MemCache.new 'localhost:11211', :namespace => 'my_namespace'

Or with multiple servers:

CACHE = MemCache.new %w[one.example.com:11211 two.example.com:11211],
                     :namespace => 'my_namespace'

See MemCache.new for details. Please note memcache-client is not thread-safe by default. You should create a separate instance for each thread in your process.

Using memcache-client with Rails

There's no need to use memcache-client in a Rails application. Rails 2.1+ includes a basic caching library which can be used with memcached. See ActiveSupport::Cache::Store for more details.

Questions?

memcache-client is maintained by Mike Perham and was originally written by Bob Cottrell, Eric Hodel and the seattle.rb crew.
