KVBase is a < 3KB key-value store for Bun. It internally uses bun:sqlite for the storage.


bun add kvb


import { KVBase } from 'kvb';

const db = new KVBase();

await db.set('foo', 'bar');
await db.get('foo'); // bar
await db.delete('foo');
await db.update('foo', 'bar');

Note: If no options.bunOptions.filename is given, Memory Storage will be used.

Typescript Support

KVBase is written in Typescript and has full types support.

Use Typescript Generics while creating a new instance of KVBase to get the correct types.

import { KVBase } from 'kvb';

const db = new KVBase<string>();

await db.set('foo', 'bar');
await db.get('foo'); // bar
