Pub build status

Support for server-side caching in Angel.


A Service class that caches data from one service, storing it in another. An imaginable use case is storing results from MongoDB or another database in MemcacheD/Redis.


A middleware that enables the caching of response serialization.

This can improve the performance of sending objects that are complex to serialize. You can pass a [shouldCache] callback to determine which values should be cached.

main() async {
    var app = new Angel()..lazyParseBodies = true;
      new CacheService(
        database: new AnonymousService(
          index: ([params]) {
            print('Fetched directly from the underlying service at ${new}!');
            return ['foo', 'bar', 'baz'];
          read: (id, [params]) {
            return {id: '$id at ${new}'};


A flexible response cache for Angel.

Use this to improve real and perceived response of Web applications, as well as to memoize expensive responses.

Supports the If-Modified-Since header, as well as storing the contents of response buffers in memory.

To initialize a simple cache:

Future configureServer(Angel app) async {
  // Simple instance.
  var cache = new ResponseCache();
  // You can also pass an invalidation timeout.
  var cache = new ResponseCache(timeout: const Duration(days: 2));
  // Close the cache when the application closes.
  app.shutdownHooks.add((_) => cache.close());
  // Use `patterns` to specify which resources should be cached.
    new RegExp(r'\.(png|jpg|gif|txt)$'),
    new Glob('public/**/*'),
  // REQUIRED: The middleware that serves cached responses
  // REQUIRED: The response finalizer that saves responses to the cache

Purging the Cache

Call invalidate to remove a resource from a ResponseCache.

Some servers expect a reverse proxy or caching layer to support PURGE requests. If this is your case, make sure to include some sort of validation (maybe IP-based) to ensure no arbitrary attacker can hack your cache:

Future configureServer(Angel app) async {
  app.addRoute('PURGE', '*', (req, res) {
    if (req.ip != '')
      throw new AngelHttpException.forbidden();
    return cache.purge(req.uri.path);


  • First version


import 'package:angel_cache/angel_cache.dart';
import 'package:angel_framework/angel_framework.dart';
import 'package:glob/glob.dart';

main() async {
  var app = new Angel()..lazyParseBodies = true;

  // Cache a glob
  var cache = new ResponseCache()
      new Glob('/*.txt'),

  // Handle `if-modified-since` header, and also send cached content

  // A simple handler that returns a different result every time.
      (ResponseContext res) => res.write(new;

  // Support purging the cache.
  app.addRoute('PURGE', '*', (RequestContext req) {
    if (req.ip != '') throw new AngelHttpException.forbidden();

    print('Purged ${req.uri.path}');

  // The response finalizer that actually saves the content

  var http = new AngelHttp(app);
  var server = await http.startServer('', 3000);
  print('Listening at http://${server.address.address}:${server.port}');
