Tired of API requests failing or taking a long time on your mashup?

Sleepy uses memcached to cache API responses for a set time to reduce load on external services, and falls back to the last working response for a request on timeout or failure.

Based on:


class TwitterUser < Weary::Base domain “” get “show” do |resource| resource.with = [:id, :user_id, :screen_name] end end

user = me = => “markwunsch”).perform_sleepily puts me[“name”]

(turn off your internet connection)

me = => “markwunsch”).perform_sleepily puts me[“name”]

Description goes here.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
