Utility library for working with Waterline criterias. Especially useful when building Sails adapters for key/value databases.


Utilities for working with Waterline criterias, especially for applying them to in-memory datasets.

This module was designed for adapters which communicate with key/value stores such as sails-disk, sails-memory, and sails-redis (i.e. they already implement the semantic interface, but need to implement the queryable interface).

$ npm install waterline-criteria --save
var wlFilter = require('waterline-criteria');
    id: 1,
    name: 'Lyra'
    id: 2,
    name 'larry'
var results = wlFilter(SOME_DATASET, {
  where: {
    name: { contains: 'lyr' }
// x ==> [{name: 'Lyra', id: 1}]

This is a built-in module in the Sails framework and the sails-disk adapter. It is installed automatically when you run npm install sails.

The master branch of this repository holds waterline-criteria used in Sails versions 0.10.0 and up. If you're looking for the version for the v0.9.x releases of Sails, the source is located here.
