MySQL On The Rocks

A dead-simple Node.js module designed for handling storage / retrieval of Javascript objects to MySQL.

}).then(function (db) {
 
  // Retrieve an object 
  return db.findObject("wallets", { 
    id: 123 
  }).then(function (obj) {
 
    // Update it 
    obj.dollars += 100;
    
    // Save to the db

mysql.save("users", {
  email: "hello@olivierkaisin.co"
}).then(function (user) {
  // .. user.id is now defined! 
  
  // Let's update the email now 
  user.email = "hi@olivierkaisin.co";
  return mysql.save("users", user);
}).fail(function (error) {
  // ... 
}).done();
var tableName = "users";
 
var query = { 
  planCode: "pro"
};
 
var order = {
  created: "desc"
};
 
 
mysql.findObjects(
  tableName, query, order, 100
).then(function (users) {
  // .. do something with the received users   
}).fail(function (error) {
  // .. handle the error 
}).done();
