var db = require('levelup')('./mydb')

You must call initAutoKeys before using the database.


You can call this from inside a request handler. Initialization is done the first time round. On subsequent calls it will just call next.

app.use(function(req, res, next) {
    db.initAutoKeys(function() {next()})

Get a new key. The key is a string with integer value starting from 1. Use parseInt to do math on the key. Will throw an error if callback is not a function.

var key
db.newAutoKey(function(err, newKey) {
    key = newKey
