Provide tables that expire after a time limit

Installation

Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

datasette install datasette-ephemeral-tables

Usage

Once installed, this plugin will ensure Datasette starts running with a new named in-memory database called ephemeral.

Any tables created in this database will be automatically dropped five minutes after creation.

Configuration

All plugin settings are optional. The full set of settings in metadata.yml looks like this:

plugins:
    datasette-ephemeral-tables:
        # The name of the in-memory database created by the plugin:
        database: ephemeral
        # After how many seconds should tables be dropped?
        table_ttl: 300
        # How often should the plugin check for expired tables (in seconds)?
        check_interval: 2

The figures shown here are the default values.
