MemcacheModel: Make Any Ruby Object (that persists in memcached) Feel Like ActiveRecord

If you’ve set your Rails cache to Memcached (for example, by setting config.cache_store to :dalli_store), you may, in some cases, want to model the objects stored in Memcached and interact with them as if they were ActiveRecord objects. To that end, I wrote a module implementing the ActiveModel API:

http://gist.github.com/658716

To use it, create a class, include the module, and override the cache class method to return Rails.cache (or another cache store whose API is similar):

class MyModel
  include MemcacheModel

private
  def self.cache
    Rails.cache
  end
end

You can now find, create, update, save, delete, and destroy MyModel objects stored in Memcached just like you do with ActiveRecord objects.
