Usage

Basic usage examples

You extend the base class to give you ORM getters and setters.

NB: You pass in a 'container' object to the Model constructor which must have a leveldb instance on the db property of the object. This allows you to share state between models by passing in the same container object for each sublevel model object that you create.

var level = require('level');
var db = level('/tmp/db', { valueEncoding: 'json' });
var Model = require('level-orm');
function Users(db) {
  // users is the sublevel name to user
  // handle is the primary key to user for insertion
  Models.call(this, { db: db }, 'users', 'handle');
}
util.inherits(Users, Models);

var users = new Users(db);

// save to database
users.save({ handle: 'eugeneware', name: 'Eugene', email: 'eugene@noblesamurai.com' },
  function (err, id) {
    // id will be the primary key 
  });

// retrieve from database
users.get('eugeneware', function (err, user) { });

// delete from database
users.del('eugeneware');

// stream from database
users.createReadStream({start: 'a', end: 'c'}).pipe(...);

Compound Keys

If you use bytewise you can have compound keys, like so:

var level = require('level');
var bytewise = require('bytewise/hex');
var db = level('/tmp/db', { keyEncoding: bytewise, valueEncoding: 'json' });
var Model = require('level-orm');

function Feed(db) {
  // compound key of 'user' and 'id'
  Models.call(this, { db: db }, 'feed', ['user', 'id']);
}
util.inherits(Feed, Models);

var feed = new Feed(db);
feed.save({ user: 'eugeneware', id: 123, message: 'Test' }, cb);

Auto Incremented Keys

Implement the keyfn function on the extended model to automatically generate keys when none is found in the model to be saved:

var level = require('level');
var bytewise = require('bytewise/hex');
// we're just going to use a unique timestamp for our keys
var timestamp = require('monotonic-timestamp');
var db = level('/tmp/db', { keyEncoding: bytewise, valueEncoding: 'json' });
function Messages(db) {
  Models.call(this, { db: db }, 'messages', 'id');
}
util.inherits(Messages, Models);
// set the function to generate ids
Messages.prototype.keyfn = timestamp;

var messages = new Messages(db);
messages.save({ message: 'My message' }, function (err, id) {
  // id will contain the auto-generated ID
});

Shared container with multiple sublevel models

var level = require('level');
var bytewise = require('bytewise/hex');
var timestamp = require('monotonic-timestamp');

// Container class
function LevelMicroBlog(dbPath) {
  this.db = sublevel(level(dbPath, { keyEncoding: bytewise, valueEncoding: 'json' }));
  this.Users = new Users(this);
  this.Messages = new Messages(this);
  this.Feed = new Feed(this);
}

LevelMicroBlog.prototype.close = function(cb) {
  if (this.db) return this.db.close(cb);
  this.db = null;
  cb(null);
}

// Users sublevel model
function Users(container) {
  Models.call(this, container, 'users', 'handle');
}
util.inherits(Users, Models);

// Messages sublevel model
function Messages(container) {
  Models.call(this, container, 'messages', 'id');
}
util.inherits(Messages, Models);
Messages.prototype.keyfn = timestamp;

// instantiate a new container class
var mblog = new LevelMicroBlog('/tmp/db');
mblog.Users.save({ 'handle': 'EugeneWare', name: 'Eugene Ware'}, ...);
mblog.Messages.save({ message: 'A new message' }, ...);
