whoadb

Store and read JSON objects in a flat file if you want!

WhoaDB(!)

Not actually a DB: But read/write JSON objects to/from a flat file using this if you want.

This is a component I extracted from a test REST server used if you're working on a front end app that RESTfully stores data and you want to click around for a little bit without firing up an actual backend.

npm install whoadb
WhoaDB = require 'whoadb'
 
persistFile = '/tmp/whoadb.json'
 
db = new WhoaDB(persistFile)
 
record1 = { id: 'fff'name:  "food"_collection: "edibles" }
record2 = { id: 'ggg'name:  "more food"_collection: "edibles" }
 
db.save(record1)
db.save(record2)
 
db.all('edibles')
 
# => [ record1, record2 ] 
 
db.find('edibles''fff')
 
# => record1 
 
record = { name:  "food"_collection: "edibles" }
 
db.save(record)
 
# record object is assigned an id 
 
record.name = "non-food"
 
db.save(record)
 
# record updated 
 
db.destroy(record)
 

If a record doesn't have a _collection key, it'll be added to the undefined collection.

record1 = { id: 'fff'name:  "food" }
 
db.save(record1)
 
db.all(undefined)
 
# => [ record1 ] 
 
db.find(undefined'fff')
 
# => record1
