Example

Index posts by title and body length, then query for them:

var Index = require('level-sec');
var level = require('level');
var sub = require('level-sublevel');

var db = sub(level('db', { valueEncoding: 'json' }));

var posts = Index(db.sublevel('posts'))
  .by('Title', 'title')
  .by('Length', 'body.length')
  .by('Author', ['author', 'title'])
  .db;

var post = {
  title: 'a title',
  body: 'lorem ipsum',
  author: 'julian'
};

posts.put('1337', post, function(err) {
  if (err) throw err;

  posts.byTitle.get('a title', console.log);
  posts.byLength.get('11', console.log);
  posts.byAuthor.get('julian!a title', console.log);
});

API

Index(db)

Index db.

Index#by(name, props)

Create an index called name and index by props.

props should be a string or an array of strings that each name a property. Deep object access is enabled via deep-access. Use multiple properties if you can't guarantee the uniqueness of the first property's value.

If a property doesn't exist, e.g. if you want to index by body.length but there is no key body, it will be ignored.

Index.db

The underlying db.

Index.db.by{Name}.get(key[, opts], fn)

Index.db.by{Name}.create{Key,Value,Read}Stream([opts])

See level-secondary.

Installation

With npm do:

npm install level-sec
