#203 in Asynchronous
Pantry is useful for temporarily storing for later use values that
might "decay" (become unusable) over time, such as:
- network connections kept alive for later reuse if the peer doesn't close their end
- files which may be deleted from the filesystem by the user or other programs
- "weak references" to resources which may be released at any point by other actors
More information can be found in the crate documentation.
Pantry value and use its
store function to store values for later
use. A key is provided along with the value, so that the value can be
retrieved later using the same key. A worker thread is spawned which monitors
the values and automatically drops any which have "decayed". Values must
Perishable trait, whose
perished function asynchronously
completes once the value has decayed.
fetch asynchronous function on the
Pantry with a key to retrieve a
value previously stored using that key. A value is only returned if it was
stored using the same key and has not decayed since it was stored.
Multiple values may have the same key, with the caveat that the values stored under a given key may not be returned in the same order in which they were stored.
This crate uses a custom configuration for
rustfmt which relies on unstable
cargo fmt on the stable toolchain may fail. Use
cargo +nightly fmt to format the code.
