Hi all, Yesterday I released a new Rails plugin: cached_models. It allows to transparently use the internal Rails cache mechanism in your models, avoiding to write code for expiring policies.


class Project < ActiveRecord::Base   has_many :developers, :cached => true end

class Developer < ActiveRecord::Base   belongs_to :project, :cached => true end

# Automatic cache, all the following calls will be served by the cache. project.developers

developer = project.developers.first developer.update_attributes :first_name => 'Luca' # Database update and cache expiring for project.

project2.developers << developer # Database update and cache expiring for project and project2

This is a 0.0.1 release, it actually support only the has_many relation. BTW I'd really like to receive a lot of feedbacks and comments.

You can find all the documentation here:

Ciao, -luca

Hi, this is good to hear and I’ll check it.
