  • My first package in go. An in-memory cache package useful when creating multiple instances of the cache
    2 projects | /r/golang | 18 Aug 2023
    Why I am creating this package? There is an already existing memory cache package which creates (One Janitor for One Cache) So I am running into issues where many go routines are running in our use cases causing the application to crash due to some memory leakage in the library itself or maybe multiple timers running at same time casuing the issue. Also this is a very popular github library but just doesn't fits when I am creating many cache instances. So thought about creating one package by myself.
  • VCache vs Go-Cache
    4 projects | /r/golang | 4 Feb 2023
    I wrote a new library called VCache (https://github.com/microup/vcache). VCahce differs from go-cache (https://github.com/patrickmn/go-cache) by using a key of type "any" instead of a key of type "string". I compared the performance of both libraries on the main operations: Add, Get, and Delete.

    > when they went a year without a release.

    Cause these libraries depend on other libraries that are probably extremely out of date at that point and have their own security vulnerabilities.

    An example of a project that hasn't been dismissed as "abandoned", is https://github.com/patrickmn/go-cache because it explicitly doesnt have dependencies.

    So yeah, if you have a semi-complex library, a year without a release is abandoned.
