wheezy.caching / README

`wheezy.caching`_ is a `python`_ package written in pure Python
code. It is a lightweight caching library that provides integration with:

* `python-memcached`_ - Pure Python `memcached`_ client.
* `pylibmc`_ - Quick and small `memcached`_ client for Python written
  in C.

It introduces idea of *cache dependency* (effectively invalidate dependent
cache items) and other cache related algorithms.

It is optimized for performance, well tested and documented.

Resources:

* `source code`_, `examples`_ and `issues`_ tracker are available
  on `bitbucket`_
* `documentation`_, `readthedocs`_
* `eggs`_ on `pypi`_
