I’m pleased to announce the initial release of Rack::Cache, a piece of
middleware that implements many of RFC 2616’s caching features with a
set of storage options (disk, heap, and memcached) and a configuration
for controlling cache policy.
Introductory blog post:
Rack::Cache is suitable as a quick drop-in component to enable HTTP
for Rack-based applications that produce freshness (Expires,
and/or validation (Last-Modified, ETag) information.
- Standards-based (RFC 2616)
- Freshness/expiration based caching
- Vary support
- Portable: 100% Ruby / works with any Rack-enabled framework
- Configuration language for advanced caching policies
- Disk, memcached, and heap memory storage backends
This is a young and experimental project that is likely to change
substantially and may not be wholly functional, consistent, fast, or
The current focus is on reaching basic compliance with RFC 2616 and
$ gem install rack-cache
With a local working copy:
$ git clone git://github.com/rtomayko/rack-cache.git $ cd rack-cache $ rake package && rake install
