A LRU cache implementation

LRU Cache

Travis Badge Codecov Badge Badge Badge License Badge


An implementation of a LRU cache. The cache supports put, get, get_mut and pop operations, all of which are O(1). This crate was heavily influenced by the LRU Cache implementation in an earlier version of Rust's std::collections crate.

The MSRV for this crate is 1.36.0.


Below is a simple example of how to instantiate and use a LRU cache.

extern crate lru;

use lru::LruCache;

fn main() {
    let mut cache = LruCache::new(2);
    cache.put("apple", 3);
    cache.put("banana", 2);

    assert_eq!(*cache.get(&"apple").unwrap(), 3);
    assert_eq!(*cache.get(&"banana").unwrap(), 2);

    assert_eq!(cache.put("banana", 4), Some(2));
    assert_eq!(cache.put("pear", 5), None);

    assert_eq!(*cache.get(&"pear").unwrap(), 5);
    assert_eq!(*cache.get(&"banana").unwrap(), 4);

        let v = cache.get_mut(&"banana").unwrap();
        *v = 6;

    assert_eq!(*cache.get(&"banana").unwrap(), 6);
