LiteDb.Extensions.Caching Nuget Quality Gate Status Coverage

An IDistributedCache implementation for LiteDB.


Registering the cache:

IServiceCollection services = //...

// or
services.AddLiteDbCache("MyCache.db", "MySuperStrongPassword1111!!!")
// or
services.AddLiteDbCache(options =>
    options.CachePath = "MyCache.db";
    options.Password = "MySuperStrongPassword1111!!!";

After this the IDistributedCache can be used as usual;

Fine controls

The package also allows you to have some manual controls for managing the cache through the ILiteDbCache interface:

public interface ILiteDbCache : IDistributedCache
    int CacheItemCount();
    Task<int> CacheCountAsync(CancellationToken cancellationToken = default);

    void Clear();
    Task ClearAsync(CancellationToken cancellationToke = default);

    ulong CacheSizeInBytes();
    Task<ulong> CacheSizeInBytesAsync();

Multi level cache

The library also adds a multi level cache implementation through the IMultiLevelCache interface, which first tries to retrieve an object from the IMemoryCache, then from the IDistributedCache. For serialization it uses System.Text.Json. Another string-based serializer can be used by implementing the IMultiLevelCacheSerializer interface and then registering it through DI.

var key = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
var value = new TestData(Guid.NewGuid().ToString());

var storedValue = await MultiLevelCache.GetOrSetAsync(key, (_) => Task.FromResult(value), new MemoryCacheEntryOptions(), new DistributedCacheEntryOptions());


Issues and pull requests are welcome.

If you find a bug, please try to recreate it with a test case in the test project and put it in the newly created issue (not mandatory)
