This is an implementation of the modified merkle patricia tree as speficed in the Ethereum's yellow paper.

SYNOPSIS

or #ethereumjs on freenode

This is an implementation of the modified merkle patricia tree as specified in the Ethereum's yellow paper.

The modified Merkle Patricia tree (trie) provides a persistent data structure to map between arbitrary-length binary data (byte arrays). It is defined in terms of a mutable data structure to map between 256-bit binary fragments and arbitrary-length binary data. The core of the trie, and its sole requirement in terms of the protocol specification is to provide a single 32-byte value that identifies a given set of key-value pairs.
- Ethereum's yellow paper

The only backing store supported is LevelDB through the levelup module.

INSTALL

npm install merkle-patricia-tree

USAGE

var Trie = require('merkle-patricia-tree'),
levelup = require('levelup'),
db = levelup('./testdb'),
trie = new Trie(db); 
 
trie.put('test', 'one', function () {
  trie.get('test', function (errvalue) {
    if(value) console.log(value.toString())
  });
});
