LevelDB Logo

Fast & simple storage - a Node.js-style LevelDB wrapper that works in the browser too!

Build Status dependencies Greenkeeper badge


This is a convenience package that bundles the current release of LevelUP and LevelDOWN/Level.js and exposes LevelUP on its export.

Use this package to avoid having to explicitly install LevelDOWN/Level.js when you just want to use LevelUP in node and in the browser. In node.js you get LevelDOWN, while in the browser you get Level.js (through use of browserify's browser field setting in package.json).

var level = require('level-browserify')
// 1) Create our database, supply location and options.
//    This will create or open the underlying LevelDB store/Indexedb Database
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)
