LWP::UserAgent::Plugin::Cache - Cache LWP::UserAgent responses

VERSION

This document describes version 0.002 of LWP::UserAgent::Plugin::Cache (from Perl distribution LWP-UserAgent-Plugin-Cache), released on 2019-04-15.

SYNOPSIS

 use LWP::UserAgent::Plugin 'Cache' => {
     max_age  => '3600',     # defaults to LWP_USERAGENT_PLUGIN_CACHE_MAX_AGE or CACHE_MAX_AGE or 86400
     cache_if => qr/^[23]/,  # optional, default is to cache all responses
 };

 my $res  = LWP::UserAgent::Plugin->new->get("http://www.example.com/");
 my $res2 = LWP::UserAgent::Plugin->request(GET => "http://www.example.com/"); # cached response

DESCRIPTION

This plugin can cache responses to cache files.

Currently only GET requests are cached. Cache are keyed by SHA256-hex(URL). Error responses are also cached (unless you configure /cache_if). Currently no cache-related HTTP request or response headers (e.g. Cache-Control) are respected.

CONFIGURATION

max_age

Int.

cache_if

Regex or code. If regex, then will be matched against response status. If code, will be called with arguments: ($self, $response).

ENVIRONMENT

CACHE_MAX_AGE

Int. Will be consulted after "LWP_USERAGENT_PLUGIN_CACHE_MAX_AGE".

LWP_USERAGENT_PLUGIN_CACHE_MAX_AGE

Int. Will be consulted before "CACHE_MAX_AGE".
