    Fast & simple storage - a Node.js-style Basho-LevelDB wrapper

    This is a convenience package that bundles the current release of LevelUP and LevelDOWN-Basho and exposes LevelUP on its export.

    Use this package to avoid having to explicitly install LevelDOWN-Basho when you want to use LevelDOWN-Basho with LevelUP.

    var level = require('level-basho')
    // 1) Create our database, supply location and options.
    //    This will create or open the underlying LevelDB store.
    var db = level('./mydb')
    // 2) put a key & value
    db.put('name', 'Level', function (err) {
      if (err) return console.log('Ooops!', err) // some kind of I/O error
      // 3) fetch by key
      db.get('name', function (err, value) {
        if (err) return console.log('Ooops!', err) // likely the key was not found
        // ta da!
        console.log('name=' + value)
