Automatically expire cached fragments in Ruby on Rails based on the state of the models involved.
In any view:
<% store 'fragment_name', :observe => [:users, :coments] do %> cached fragment which does something intensive <% end %>
This fragment will be cached until a save or destroy occur in the User and Comment models.
You can install it as a Rails plugin or as a gem:
$ gem sources -a http://gems.github.com (you only have to do this once) $ sudo gem install citrusbyte-store_observer
