A convenience package bundling LevelUP & MemDOWN


Build Status Greenkeeper badge

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

Use this package to avoid having to explicitly install MemDOWN when you want to use MemDOWN with LevelUP for non-persistent LevelUP data storage.

var level = require('level-mem')
// 1) Create our database, supply location and options. 
//    This will create or open the underlying LevelDB store. 
var db = level('w00t')
// 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)
