quick-lru Build Status Coverage Status

Simple “Least Recently Used” (LRU) cache

Useful when you need to cache something and limit memory usage.

Inspired by the hashlru algorithm, but instead uses Map to support keys of any type, not just strings, and values can be undefined.

Install

$ npm install quick-lru

Usage

const QuickLRU = require('quick-lru');

const lru = new QuickLRU({maxSize: 1000});

lru.set('🦄', '🌈');

lru.has('🦄');
//=> true

lru.get('🦄');
//=> '🌈'
