npm install ds
var DS = require("ds").DS

// if no argument, "./ds.json" is used
// constructore calls load()
var ds = new DS("./ds.json") = 1
ds.a = [1,2,"foo"]
ds.o = {bar:"baz", qux:42}		// data (all of it) written to ./ds.json
ds.clear()		// all data erased
load(path)		// load JSON data from file into memory
				// if path not provided, path provided to constructor is used
save(path)		// save JSON data to a specific file
save()			// save JSON data to same file as last time
clear()			// clear the in-memory data store
