The Node.js Connector is an asynchronous promise-based client library for the X DevAPI (using the X Protocol) that was introduced in MySQL 5.7.12.
MySQL 5.7 is an open-source relational database that is secure, high performing, and easy to use. The X DevAPI supports relational tables and JSON documents making it possible to use both tables and collections at the same time.
For general information about the X DevAPI, please refer to documentation on https://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/.
This library requires at least Node.js 4.2.x and MySQL 5.7.19 or later.
This library is organized in a way that it can be installed into your project using Node.js's npm tool. Choose one of the following methods to get and install MySQL Connector/node.js:
$ npm install mysql-connector-nodejs-8.0.8.tar.gz`
$ npm install @mysql/xdevapi
Please refer to https://npmjs.com for more information on npm.
Here's a small example of how to leverage the library using MySQL as a document-store.
const mysql = ;mysql;
