Error:(123, 62) Could not find a Mode for type dao.RepositoryIO.
If you want synchronous execution, try importing the sync mode:
import scalacache.modes.sync._
If you are working with Scala Futures, import the scalaFuture mode
and don't forget you will also need an ExecutionContext:
import scalacache.modes.scalaFuture._
import scala.concurrent.ExecutionContext.Implicits.global

        memoizeF[RepositoryIO, Option[User]](Option(1.hour)) {
I have no problem if it's a Task[Something], only if it's a more complicated ZIO that requires resources
Roberto Leibman
I guess the mode only supports Task... ok... so I put my cache closer to the edge of the app and got it to work.
Roberto Leibman
@dieproht did you zio interop ever make it into the main repo?
Roberto Leibman
I hope you don't mind... I'm actually using it, so I put in a PR for it.
Roberto Leibman
@cb372 Can you look at my PR please?

How do I remove from a cache? In the example above, I've tried removing by the user, and by the userId, but neither of those worked. Only removeAll worked

I think I have figured out why this is happening to you, but am not sure what is the best way to fix it. Did you find a solution?

I think the problem is that the method call is part of the key stored by scalacache, and calling it from a different method causes a cache miss.

Miguel Vilá
hello :wave: , we have observed some strange behavior when using scalacache along with ZIO. We are using a Task mode and we noticed that the parameters were not being included as part of the key. We factored out the code by extracting the underlying operation and it worked as expected, will link some gist
you can see the differences between the working version and the non working version there
so I'm wondering if this is something that's expected? were we missusing scalacache?
Roberto Leibman
@miguel-vila I didn't know there was even an official zio mode. I put a PR back in April but haven't heard anything since.
Is there any possibility of caching an fs2 stream?
Simon Redfern
Folks, Nubeee here. How do I make the following work with maven?: import scalacache.serialization.binary._
Hi, I'm wonder why traits Cache and CacheAlg doesn't include effect type parameter (it was moved to methods declarations). I've just created an issue for this (cb372/scalacache#417), where I've explained my doubts more precisely.
Folks, Is there any way to retrive all the keys from Caffeine cache ?

Hi. Hoping someone can help with a question I have regarding using scalacache with cats.effect.IO. If I run the following code:

import cats.effect.{ExitCode, IO, IOApp}
import cats.implicits._
import scalacache.guava.GuavaCache
import scalacache.{cachingF, CacheConfig, Flags}

import scala.concurrent.duration.DurationLong

object CacheTest extends IOApp {

  override def run(args: List[String]): IO[ExitCode] =
    ).parMapN(_ + _ + _) *> IO.pure(ExitCode.Success)

  private val cache = GuavaCache[String](CacheConfig.defaultCacheConfig)

  private def cached(key: String) =
    cachingF(key)(ttl = None)(loadValue(key))(cache, scalacache.CatsEffect.modes.async, Flags.defaultFlags)

  private def loadValue(key: String) =
    IO(println(s"Loading $key")) *>
      IO.sleep(1.second) *>
      IO {
        println(s"Loaded $key")

I get the output:

Loading abc
Loading abc
Loading def
Loaded abc
Loaded abc
Loaded def

cachingF invokes the loadValue function twice with "abc". Instead I would like it to only invoke it once and use the resulting IO for both calls to cached. Is this possible using scalacache or do I need to implement this manually by storing an actual IO in the cache and removing the key if the IO fails at a later stage?


Hello All,

Is there any way to get the redis cache stats like hit rate , hit count as we get it for caffaine by using caffainecache.stats.hitCount()


Hello All ,

Is there any way to provide custom codecs for redis cache.

here is my code :

def creatCache[T](implicit  codec: Codec[T]) = {
      val jedisPool = new JedisPool(new JedisPoolConfig(), "localhost", 6379, 20000)
      val customisedRedisCache: Cache[T] = RedisCache[T](jedisPool)

and calling this function as

 implicit val jobPropsCache = creatCache[Map[String,String]]

code is failing at calling thr function. error is

 No implicits provides for codec: Codec[Map[String,String]]

Hi there, I'm migrating from scala 2.12 to 2.13, including code that was written using scalacache and guava. But now the compiler refuses that code. These are the issues:

import scalacache._
import scalacache.serialization.InMemoryRepr
import guava._

class MyClass(cache: ScalaCache[InMemoryRepr]) {...}

gives me : object InMemoryRepr is not a member of package scalacache.serialization and: not found: type ScalaCache

sync.cachingWithTTL(key)(Duration.apply(1, DAYS)) { ... }

gives me: value cachingWithTTL is not a member of object scalacache.sync


gives me:

overloaded method apply with alternatives:
[error]   [V](underlying: com.google.common.cache.Cache[String,scalacache.Entry[V]])(implicit config: scalacache.CacheConfig): scalacache.guava.GuavaCache[V] <and>
[error]   [V](implicit config: scalacache.CacheConfig): scalacache.guava.GuavaCache[V]
[error]  cannot be applied to ()

Anyone to help migrating to last version of scalacache (I can't find any scaladoc or changelog to help replacing the old code) ?
So, what should I use instead of scalacache.serialization.InMemoryRepr which seems to have been removed from the library.
Why is ScalaCache not found ?
What should I use instead of sync.cachingWithTTL ?
How to use the new constructors of GuavaCache to get the same as old GuavaCache() ? Isn't there a default one ?

@cosmir17 it seems you've experienced the same kind of issue, have you found out how to fix it ?
Yoann Guyot

I may have found answers:

  • I use GuavaCache[MyClass] instead of ScalaCache[InMemoryRepr]
  • I use sync.caching(key)(Some(Duration.apply(1, DAYS))) { ... }(cache = myImplicitCache, mode = mode, flags = new Flags()) instead of sync.cachingWithTTL(key)(Duration.apply(1, DAYS)) { ... }
  • I use GuavaCache(config) with implicit val config = CacheConfig() instead of ScalaCache(GuavaCache())

I hope this is correct.

Roberto Leibman
Are there any facilities for multi-level layering of cache systems in either scalacache or in any of the cache systems that scalacache uses? Basically I'd like a short TTL for in memory cache and a a longer TTL for a cloud level cache before I hit the actual process that gets the data.
Roberto Leibman
It may not be too difficult to create a CompoundCache that extends AbstractCache and has a list of caches to try
Jeff Lewis
Hey @rleibman I don’t believe that there is a current “out-of-the-box” way to do this. But I agree that you could pretty easily create a compound cache of some kind that did this. We have an issue open to take a look at the API Scalacache exposes before we go live with a final 1.0.0 release and will keep this in mind while going through that exercise.
Roberto Leibman
Jeff Lewis
My initial instinct is to wait until after the 1.0.0 release is through to look at introducing this functionality, but very happy to hear your thoughts on that. Feel free to open an issue on GH for this if you feel so inclined :)
Roberto Leibman
I think the only weirdness with it would be that each cache would have it's own ttl vs the ttl of the compound cache.
Jeff Lewis
Yeah that is a good callout, thanks for putting the issue in!
Vimit Dhawan
Hello Everyone, I am using CaffeineCache in my application but it looks like we can use only string as a key. is there any way to use case class
Brian P. Holt

When using ScalaCache with cats-effect and Caffeine, is it a good idea to set the Caffeine executor field to the cats-effect Blocker being used?


Caffeine.newBuilder().maximumSize(10000L).executor(blocker.blockingContext.execute(_)).build[String, Entry[String]]
Leo De Souza
Hi all, I am new to Scalacache lib. I am looking for a good introduction to it using Caffeine underlining cache. Any suggestion for an introductory post? I checked the documentation (https://cb372.github.io/scalacache/docs/) but it is quite poor tbh :( For example, which Sbt libs I need to include to support the diff Modes as per "scalacache.modes.try."?
Ashwin Bhaskar
is there an integration of scalacache with ZIO?
if not, any pointers on how I should go about building a Mode for ZIO effects ?

Hi! If I use caffeine cache with expireAfterWrite set, not sure how the ttl param would behave in cachingF?

private val underlyingCaffeineCache = Caffeine.newBuilder()
.expireAfterWrite(60, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
.buildString, Entry[T]

implicit val caffeineCache: Cache[T] = CaffeineCache(underlyingCaffeineCache)



Hi Team,
We are using below library dependencies in our scala App:

"com.github.cb372" %% "scalacache-redis" % "0.28.0", "com.github.cb372" %% "scalacache-cats-effect" % "0.28.0"

We are planning to upgrade our scala app from 2.12 to 3.0.0. Are there any plans from scalacache's end to release next version compatible with scala 3 ?

import scalacache.memoization._
import scala.concurrent.duration._
import scalacache.caffeine._
import scala.concurrent.Future

implicit val cache: CaffeineCache[String] = CaffeineCache[String]

import scalacache.modes.scalaFuture._
import scala.concurrent.ExecutionContext.Implicits.global

def memFut(s: String): Future[String] = memoize(Option(30.seconds)) {
  Future(s) // I want to be able to cache an async call here
1 reply
I tried the above based on the examples to memoize an async call that returns a future. The compiler complains that my method needs to return just a string. How can I memoize a method that returns a Future[A] ?
I also tried instantiating cache as CaffeineCache[Future[String]]
Does anyone know when will lib "scalacache-redis” have scala3 support ?
@danveer4686 I had a stab at providing scala 3 support in a pr, but the repo doesn't look super active right now. Might be worth looking at my branch, but I'm using it pretty simply so there may be something broken that I missed...
Albert Bikeev
Hi all!
Could somebody help me to find a way to invalidate the cache? For memoized method
Deepika H

Hi all.

Is there a way to retrieve all the keys in the cache using scalaCache-guava

Darren Bishop
hi folks. just doing a bit of investigation into whether ScalaCache and some backup can be used for a couple of our use-cases
  1. is it possible to get back nothing e.g. None on a cache-miss i.e. conditional caching? would prefer not to populate the cache with None myself
  2. is it possible to query the cache (do a get) without updating/refreshing the TTL i.e. conditional refreshing, TTL-checking?
Roberto Leibman

Though I've used scalacache for quite a while now, I'm having issues with a cache that is being hit by multiple threads at a time. Is there any synchronization I need to provide or anything like that?
I simply do:

cachingF("TenantTransactor", serverIndex)(None) { /*code here*/ }

And I see multiple misses for the same key before I finally get an insertion:

2021-09-20 16:56:01,051 [DEBUG] from scalacache.caffeine.CaffeineCache in zio-default-async-14 - Cache miss for key TenantTransactor:0

2021-09-20 16:56:02,102 [DEBUG] from scalacache.caffeine.CaffeineCache in zio-default-async-19 - Cache hit for key TenantTransactor:0
What could I be missing?
Roberto Leibman
For what it's worth I'm using my own custom spun zio mode, but I tried with cats mode and with sync and they all do the same thing.
