this function invalidates a template-fragment cache bit.

say you have:

{% load cache %} {% cache 600 user_cache user.id %} something expensive here {% endcache %}

maybe you want to force an update. With this function you can, just call:

invalidate_template_cache("user_cache", user.id)

from django.core.cache import cache
from django.utils.hashcompat import md5_constructor
from django.utils.http import urlquote
from functional import compose

def invalidate_template_cache(fragment_name, *variables):
    args = md5_constructor(u':'.join(apply(compose(urlquote, unicode), variables)))
    cache_key = 'template.cache.%s.%s' % (fragment_name, args.hexdigest())
    cache.delete(cache_key)

This didn't work for me on django1.1,

The following did though:

def invalidate_template_cache(fragment_name, *variables):
  args = md5_constructor(u':'.join([urlquote(var) for var in variables]))
  cache_key = 'template.cache.%s.%s' % (fragment_name, args.hexdigest())
  cache.delete(cache_key)

Wraps the invalidation function in a template tag.
