import 'dart:async' show Future;
import 'dart:convert' show utf8;
import 'package:neat_cache/neat_cache.dart';

Future<void> main() async {
  final cacheProvider = Cache.redisCacheProvider('redis://localhost:6379');
  final cache = Cache(cacheProvider);

  /// Create a sub-cache using a prefix, and apply a codec to store utf8
  final userCache = cache.withPrefix('users').withCodec(utf8);

  /// Get data form cache
  String userinfo = await userCache['peter-pan'].get();

  /// Put data into cache
  await userCache['winnie'].set('Like honey');

  await cacheProvider.close();


To test the redis CacheProvider a redis instance must be running on localhost:6379, this can be setup with:

  • docker run --rm -p redis
