Welcome to dogpile.core’s documentation!


The dogpile.core package has been rolled into dogpile.cache directly as of version 0.6.0 of dogpile.cache. dogpile.core as a separate package is effectively EOL.

dogpile.core provides the dogpile lock, one which allows a single thread or process to generate an expensive resource while other threads/processes use the “old” value, until the “new” value is ready.

dogpile.core is at the core of the dogpile.cache package which provides for a basic cache API and sample backends based on the dogpile concept.
