cryptchat-keyring

The cryptchat-keyring module exports the keyring management library used across all other cryptchat products.

This package serves as an interface to store, sort through and save PGP keys.

Storage

All data is stored in an in-memory database collection operated by LokiJS. Keys can be added in, deleted, filtered and exported through the provided interface.

Despite LokiJS being an in-memory database with virtually instant data access, most functions will return a Promise. While not completely necessary (as, at least for now, LokiJS is still running in blocking mode), this will match the code structure of other cryptchat modules and future-proof the code.

Disclaimer

Documentation is sparse and will remain sparse until more feature-filled.

This keyring module, as with all Cryptchat components, should not be considered ready for any production-quality code at the current moment.
