Simple Cache

The Simple Cache is an in-process memory cache based on an IDictionary<string, object>. It's fast and does the job for simple runtime scenarios. The simple cache is included in the core Piranha package meaning that no additional packages needs to be installed to use it.

Register The Service

To register the simple cache, simply add the following call to your Startup.cs.

using Piranha;

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)



This will register the cache as a Singleton and it will be injected into all services. Please note that to actually use the cache in the repositories you need to set the current Cache Level of your application. For more information see Caching.

About Simple Cache

Please note that since simple caching is handled in the memory of the web server process it does not work well for web farms or clustered environments. For these types of setups you should consider using a distributed cache.
