kyoto - Kyoto Cabinet bindings for Node.JS

Synopsis

Kyoto Cabinet is a library of routines for managing a database. It supports fast, efficient hash-based and tree-based storage for key/value data. See fundamental specifications or API reference for more details.

This package implements bindings to the kyotocabinet library for Node.JS. For example:

var Kyoto = require('kyoto');
var db = Kyoto.open('/tmp/data.kch', 'a+', onOpen);

function onOpen(err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  db.set('my', 'value', query);
}

function query(err) {
  if (err) throw err;
  db.get('my', function(err, value) {
    if (err) throw err;
    console.log('My value is', value);
  });
}

process.on('exit', function() {
  db.closeSync();
});

process.on('uncaughtException', function(err) {
  // Do something with err
  db.closeSync();
});

Note: it's very important to close the database property. Be sure to install exit and uncaughtException handlers that call .closeSync().

Installation

Dependencies: Kyoto Cabinet >= 1.2.57, Node >= 0.4.0

If Kyoto Cabinet isn't already installed, try using your operating system's package manager. Otherwise, download and build from source. If you install manually, don't forget to do an ldconfig afterwards.

To install the Kyoto bindings, use npm:

npm install kyoto

Documentation

Please refer to kyoto.js for documentation of each method. Some kyotocabinet methods aren't implemented yet. More docs and examples are forthcoming.

An alternative to this package is Kyoto Client, an implementation of a Kyoto Tycoon client. Tycoon is an out-of-process server that allows clients to interact with a Kyoto Cabinet over a network API. Using Kyoto Client is recommended unless you really need something in-process and plan to implement your own key/value network API.
