Using Ristretto to cache objects in Go

development golang cache ristretto

Introduction In my previous article on Greycell, I wrote about caching objects using tags and how it can make cache invalidation easier. I used Redis as a temporary store for our objects that needed to be cached. Although Redis is really good for this, I wanted an embedded key-value store in order to avoid additional dependency of maintaining a Redis server. When I explored further, I came across many embedded key-value store like groupcache, fastcache, burrow cache and Dgraph’s Ristretto.
