Laravel-Matryoshka is a simple package for Laravel that provides Russian Doll caching for your view logic. It uses the "updated at" timestamp of the model, in order to automatic cache busting whenever the model is updated. Laravel-Matryoshka will extend your blade view logic in order to create caching segments, which can be managed separately.

Popularized in the Rails world, Russian Doll caching is an interesting approach, where you create nested fragment caches for your view logic. If you then link the keys for each of these cached items to the model's "updated at" timestamp, what you get is easy caching for your view logic, and automatic cache busting whenever the model is updated.
