SimpleCache

A simple library for saving data in the cache and reading them.

Setup

The library is hosted on jcenter. To use it, add the following to your module level build.gradle file's dependencies:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.pcpl2:simplecache:1.2.0'
}

Basic usage

To init instance of cache manager without filename:

val cacheManager = CacheManager.createInstance(context = appContext)

The cacheManager instance usage default cache file.

To init instance of cache manager with filename:

val cacheManager = CacheManager.createInstance(context = appContext, fileName = "filesCache")

The cacheManager instance usage cache with file name filesCache.

To init instance of cache manager without autosave:

val cacheManager = CacheManager.createInstance(context = appContext, autoSave = false)

If you have deactivated the automatic saving, you must remember to save the data using the save method.

Add or update elements to cache:

The set function accepts 3 parameters: key: Stirng, value: Any, lifetime: Long.

The lifetime parameter is the lifetime in seconds and is optional, default set as 0 (no lifetime).

To add or update element to cache instance with set lifetime:

cacheManager.set("HelloWorldKey", "Hello World", 60)
cacheManager.set("IntValueKey", 255, 30)
cacheManager.set("BooleanKey", false, 60)
cacheManager.set("FloatKey", 5.55, 60)

To add or update element to cache instance without set lifetime:

cacheManager.set("HelloWorldKey", "Hello World")
cacheManager.set("IntValueKey", 255)
cacheManager.set("BooleanKey", false)
cacheManager.set("FloatKey", 5.55)

Save cache data

To save cache on disk (if autosave disabled):

cacheManager.save()

Getting element from cache:

The get function accepts 4 parameters: key: Stirng, checkExpired: Boolean = true, success: (value: Any, type: Class<*>) -> Unit, error: (() -> Unit)? = null.

The checkExpired parameter is optional, default set as true.

Callback success return value from map and value type.

Callback error is optional and run if element with key do not exist or lifetime of element is ended.

To get element from cache instance with lifetime check:

cacheManager.get(key = "HelloWorldKey", success = { value, type ->
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
})

cacheManager.get(key = "IntValueKey", success = { value, type ->
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
})

cacheManager.get(key = "BooleanKey", success = { value, type ->
   Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
}, error = { 
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", "BooleanKey is empty.")
})

cacheManager.get(key = "FloatKey", success = { value, type ->
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
}, error = { 
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", "FloatKey is empty.")
})

To get element from cache instance without lifetime check:

cacheManager.get(key = "HelloWorldKey", checkExpired = false, success = { value, type ->
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
})

cacheManager.get(key = "IntValueKey", checkExpired = false, success = { value, type ->
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
})

cacheManager.get(key = "BooleanKey", checkExpired = false, success = { value, type ->
   Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
}, error = { 
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", "BooleanKey is empty.")
})

cacheManager.get(key = "FloatKey", checkExpired = false, success = { value, type ->
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", value.toString())
}, error = { 
    Log.d("simpleCacheLog", "FloatKey is empty.")
})

Remove element from cache

The remove function accept 1 parameter: key: Stirng.

To remove element from cache instance:

cacheManager.remove("FloatKey")

Clear cache instance

The removeAllElements function cleans the entire cache.

To clear cache istance:

cacheManager.removeAllElements()

To remove all elements in cache istance:

cacheManager.removeAllElements()

The dispose function accept 1 parameter: save: Boolean = true.

The save parameter is optional, default set as true.

List of the cache files.

The getListOfCacheFiles function accept 1 parameter: ctx: Context and return list of exist cache files.

To get cache files:

CacheManager.getListOfCacheFiles(appContext)

Global instances

Create global instance

The createGlobalInstance function accept 4 parameters: context: Context, instanceName: String, fileName: String = "CacheBase", autoSave: Boolean = true and return cache instance.

To create global instance:

CacheManager.createGlobalInstance(context = appContext, instanceName = "Instance1", fileName = "instanceFile1")

Get global instance

The getGlobalInstance function accept 1 parameter: instanceName: String and return cache instance.

To get global instance by name:

val globalInstance2 = CacheManager.getGlobalInstance(instanceName = "Instance1")

To get list of global instance names:

var listOfIInstancesNames = CacheManager.getListOfGlobalInstanceNames()

Remove global instance

The removeGlobalInstance function accept 2 parameters: instanceName: String, save: Boolean = true.

The save parameter is optional, default set as true.

To remove global instance by name:

CacheManager.removeGlobalInstance(instanceName = "Instance1")

To remove all global instances:

CacheManager.removeAllGlobalInstances()
