NAME

Cache::Reddit - a caching API that uses Reddit as the backend

VERSION

version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

  use Cache::Reddit;

  my $id = set($data_ref);  # serialize data and post to subreddit
  my $data = get($id);      # retrieve the data back
  remove($id);              # delete the data from Reddit

DESCRIPTION

Cache::Reddit is a module for cacheing your application data on Reddit. Data is serialized using Storable and posted to a subreddit. The data is posted as a text post, and the title of the post set to Cache::Reddit:: + a random number.

The text is bleached before posting (converted to binary, tr/01/ \t/g) so it appears as whitespace on Reddit.

Due to the list-like search function, data retrieval performs at 0(n). However deletion and insertion performs at 0(1).

It requires three environment variables to be set:

  • reddit_username - the reddit username to login with

  • reddit_password - the reddit password to login with

  • reddit_subreddit - the target subreddit to post data to

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

set($dataref)

Serializes and saves the data in the subreddit as a text post. Returns the key for cached entry;

get ($key)

Deserializes and returns the cached entry.

remove ($key)

Deletes the item from the subreddit.
