    unordered-materialized-kv

    materialized view key/id store based on unordered log messages

    This library presents a familiar key/value materialized view for append-only log data which can be inserted in any order. New documents point at ancestor documents under the same key to "overwrite" their values. This library implements a multi-register conflict strategy, so each key may map to more than one value. To merge multiple values into a single value, point at more than one ancestor id.

    This library is useful for kappa architectures with missing or out of order log entries, or where calculating a topological ordering would be expensive.

    This library does not store values itself, only the IDs to look up values. This way you can use an append-only log to store your primary values without duplicating data.

    example

    var umkv = require('unordered-materialized-kv')
    var db = require('level')('/tmp/kv.db')
    var kv = umkv(db)
     
    if (process.argv[2] === 'insert') {
      var doc = JSON.parse(process.argv[3])
      kv.batch([doc], function (err) {
        if (err) console.error(err)
      })
    } else if (process.argv[2] === 'get') {
      var key = process.argv[3]
      kv.get(key, function (err, ids) {
        if (err) console.error(err)
        else console.log(ids)
      })
    }

    in order with no forking:

    $ rm -rf /tmp/kv.db \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"x","key":"a","links":[]}' \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"y","key":"a","links":["x"]}' \
    && node kv.js get a
    [ 'y' ]
    

    out of order with no forking:

    $ rm -rf /tmp/kv.db \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"y","key":"a","links":["x"]}' \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"x","key":"a","links":[]}' \
    && node kv.js get a
    [ 'y' ]
    

    in order with forking:

    $ rm -rf /tmp/kv.db \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"x","key":"a","links":[]}' \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"y","key":"a","links":["x"]}' \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"z","key":"a","links":[]}' \
    && node kv.js get a
    [ 'y', 'z' ]
    

    out of order with forking:

    $ rm -rf /tmp/kv.db \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"z","key":"a","links":[]}' \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"x","key":"a","links":[]}' \
    && node kv.js insert '{"id":"y","key":"a","links":["x"]}' \
    && node kv.js get a
    [ 'z', 'y' ]
    

    api

    var umkv = require('unordered-materialized-kv')

    var kv = umkv(db, opts)

    Create a kv instance from a leveldb instance db (levelup or leveldown).

    Only the db.batch() and db.get() interfaces of leveldb are used with no custom value encoding, so you can use any interface that supports these methods.

    Optionally pass in a custom opts.delim. The default is ','. This delimiter is used to separate document ids.

    You can pass in a function as opts.onremove that will be called with an array of string keys after those keys are removed from the database due to linking.

    You can pass in a function as opts.onupdate that will be called after every batch is written with an object mapping keys to arrays of ids which represent the new values you would obtain from get() for that key. This is useful for implementing live queries or subscriptions.

    kv.batch(rows, cb)

    Write an array of rows into the kv. Each row in the rows array has:

    • row.key - string key to use
    • row.id - unique id string of this record
    • row.links - array of id string ancestor links

    kv.get(key, cb)

    Lookup the array of ids that map to a given string key as cb(err, ids).

    kv.isLinked(key, cb)

    Test if a key is linked to as cb(err, exists) for a boolean exists.

    This routine is used internally but you can use this method to save having to duplicate this logic in your own unordered materialized view.
