Instance Public methods

cleanup(options = nil)

Preemptively iterates through all stored keys and removes the ones which have expired.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/file_store.rb, line 38
def cleanup(options = nil)
  options = merged_options(options)
  search_dir(cache_path) do |fname|
    entry = read_entry(fname, **options)
    delete_entry(fname, **options) if entry && entry.expired?
  end
end

clear(options = nil)

Deletes all items from the cache. In this case it deletes all the entries in the specified file store directory except for .keep or .gitkeep. Be careful which directory is specified in your config file when using FileStore because everything in that directory will be deleted.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/file_store.rb, line 31
def clear(options = nil)
  root_dirs = (Dir.children(cache_path) - GITKEEP_FILES)
  FileUtils.rm_r(root_dirs.collect { |f| File.join(cache_path, f) })
rescue Errno::ENOENT, Errno::ENOTEMPTY
end

decrement(name, amount = 1, options = nil)

Decrement a cached integer value. Returns the updated value.

If the key is unset, it will be set to -amount.

cache.decrement("foo") # => -1

To set a specific value, call write:

cache.write("baz", 5)
cache.decrement("baz") # => 4
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/file_store.rb, line 73
def decrement(name, amount = 1, options = nil)
  modify_value(name, -amount, options)
end

delete_matched(matcher, options = nil)

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/file_store.rb, line 77
def delete_matched(matcher, options = nil)
  options = merged_options(options)
  instrument(:delete_matched, matcher.inspect) do
    matcher = key_matcher(matcher, options)
    search_dir(cache_path) do |path|
      key = file_path_key(path)
      delete_entry(path, **options) if key.match(matcher)
    end
  end
end

increment(name, amount = 1, options = nil)

Increment a cached integer value. Returns the updated value.

If the key is unset, it starts from 0:

cache.increment("foo") # => 1
cache.increment("bar", 100) # => 100

To set a specific value, call write:

cache.write("baz", 5)
cache.increment("baz") # => 6
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/file_store.rb, line 58
def increment(name, amount = 1, options = nil)
  modify_value(name, amount, options)
end
