I’ve pretty much tried everything, but it seems impossible to use
expire_fragment from models? I know you’re not supposed to and it’s
non-MVC, but surely there much be some way to do it.
I created a module in /lib/cache_helper.rb with all my expire helpers,
within each are just a bunch of expire_fragment calls. I have all my
cache sweepers setup under /app/sweepers and have an “include
CacheHelper” in my application controller so expiring cache within the
app when called via controllers works fine.
Then things is I have some external daemons and especially some
recurring cron tasks which call a rake task that calls a certain
method. This method does some processing and inputs entries into the
model, after which I need to expire cache. What’s the best way to do
this as I can’t specify “cache_sweeper” within the model.
Straight up observers seem to be the best solution but then it
complains about expire_fragment being undefined etc etc, I’ve even
tried including the ActionController caching classes into the observer
but that didn’t work. I’d love some ideas of how to create a solution
for this. Thanks.
