django-webcache 0.1

A django web caching app that supports throttling, expiration and compression.

Latest Version: 0.1.8

django-webcache

django web caching app that supports throttling, expiration and compression.

This uses code from django 1.6 for throttling transactions. If you are using django 1.5 or lower you might get lucky enough to hit the race condition if there are concurrent requests. In this event, it will just skip the throttle on that lookup.

Usage

All variables except url have defaults that can be overridden in the settings.py file

from urlopen import cache
from urlopen import throttle
from urlopen import cache_and_throttle

Cache

cache(url[, data=postdata][, location="path"][, expires=n |, expires=(n,m)][, overwrite=False][, compression=False])
variable type description
url string The url to retrieve / cache
data string POST data string
location string The directory to save the cached pages to
expires integer or 2 item tuple of integers Number of seconds until the cache expires, or a range from which a random number of seconds will be chosen for the expiration
overwrite boolean Retrieve url and cache even if cache already exists
compression string Compress the cache

Throttle

throttle(url[, data=postdata][, delay=n |, delay=(n,m)])
variable type description
url string The url to retrieve / cache
data string POST data string
delay integer or 2 item tuple of integers Number of seconds to throttle, or a range from which a random number will be chosen to throttle

Cache and Throttle

cache_and_throttle(url[, data=postdata][, location="path"][, expires=n |, expires=(n,m)][, overwrite=False][, compression=False][, delay=n |, delay=(n,m)])
variable type description
url string The url to retrieve / cache
data string POST data string
location string The directory to save the cached pages to
expires integer or 2 item tuple of integers Number of seconds until the cache expires, or a range from which a random number of seconds will be chosen for the expiration
overwrite boolean Retrieve url and cache even if cache already exists
compression string Compress the cache
delay integer or 2 item tuple of integers Number of seconds to throttle, or a range from which a random number of seconds will be chosen to throttle

Examples

import webcache.urlopen

pyurl = "http://www.python.org/"

"""just caching"""
response = urlopen.cache(pyurl)

"""cache and override default cache file directory"""
response = urlopen.cache(pyurl, location=self.path)

"""cache and override default expiration time in seconds"""
response = urlopen.cache(pyurl, expires=10)

"""cache and override default overwrite setting
   will overwrite old cache even if not expired"""
response = urlopen.cache(pyurl, overwrite=True)

"""cache and override default compression with gzip compression"""
response = urlopen.cache(pyurl, compression='gzip')

"""throttle will wait 10 seconds since the previous web page retrieval of something
   from the same site. For example http://www.python.org/about will throttle if
   another lookup of http://www.python.org exists in the last 10 seconds"""
response = urlopen.throttle(pyurl, delay=10)

"""throttle using random range"""
response = urlopen.throttle(pyurl, delay=(60, 120))

"""combination of cache and throttle"""
response = urlopen.cache_and_throttle(pyurl, location=self.path, delay=10)
