Beaker is a web session and general caching library that includes WSGI
middleware for use in web applications.
As a general caching library, Beaker can handle storing for various times any
Python object that can be pickled with optional back-ends on a fine-grained
* Fast, robust performance
* Multiple reader/single writer lock system to avoid duplicate simultaneous
cache creation
* Cache back-ends include dbm, file, memory, memcached, and database (using
SQLAlchemy for multiple-db vendor support)
* Signed cookies to prevent session hijacking/spoofing
* Cookie-only sessions to remove the need for a database or file backend
(ideal for clustered systems)
* Extensible Container object to support new back-ends
* Caches can be divided into namespaces (to represent templates, objects,
etc.) then keyed for different copies
* Create functions for automatic call-backs to create new cache copies after
* Fine-grained toggling of back-ends, keys, and expiration per Cache object
