Yesterday, the Mozilla webdev team released a few reusable libraries that are helping us scale out the new Django-based version of addons.mozilla.org.

    This is very similar to my as-yet-unreleased project “johnny-cache”, except that johnny caches any type of query, it supports versions 1.x of django, and its invalidation is potentially a lot more zealous. I started conceptual work on Johnny a year ago, but have only gotten around to reimplementing it for open-source consumption recently. The docs are:

    and the hg repos:

    I expect to have a release on pypi sometime within the next few weeks. I’d love to ask you some more questions about your invalidation strategy; there may be room in this world for a hybrid approach :)
