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)
