Cashew: A simple and elegant yet powerful HTTP client cache for .NET

A simple and elegant yet powerful HTTP client cache for .NET

Cashew

Cashew is a .NET library for caching responses easily with an HttpClient through an API that is simple and elegant yet powerful. There’s support out of the box for the awesome CacheManager via the Cashew.Adapters.CacheManager package. Its aim is to focus on the HTTP part of caching and not worrying about how stuff is stored, meaning no half-arsed cache implementations!

Cashew targets .NET 4.5 and .NET Standard 1.1 (.NET Core, Mono, Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, UWP and more) meaning it can be used on all sorts of devices.
