level-sublevel-stream

Find all the sublevels of a given database, not requiring them to be in memory already.

build status

Motivation

Most modules currently inspect db.sublevels to find out all the sublevels of a db, but this approach only works when the sublevel has been used since the app started up, otherwise there's no in memory representation of the sublevel, it's only in the db.

This module efficiently queries the db to find all the sublevels.

Example

Insert some data into different sublevels, then close and reopen the db, and finally use level-sublevel-stream to find all the sublevels.

var level = require('level');
var sub = require('level-sublevel');
var subStream = require('level-sublevel-stream');

var db = sub(level(__dirname + '/db'));

db.batch([
  { type: 'put', prefix: db.sublevel('a'), key: 'aa', value: 'aa' },
  { type: 'put', prefix: db.sublevel('a'), key: 'ab', value: 'ab' },
  { type: 'put', prefix: db.sublevel('b'), key: 'ba', value: 'ba' },  
  { type: 'put', prefix: db.sublevel('b'), key: 'bb', value: 'bb' }  
], function(err) {
  db.close(function(err) {
    db = sub(level(__dirname + '/db'));
    subStream(db).on('data', console.log);
  });
});

API

subStream(db[, opts])

Create a readable stream from all sublevels in db. db can be an instance of levelup or a sublevel itself.

Possible options are:

  • reverse: If true, emit sublevels in reverse lexicographic order
  • gt: Only emit sublevels whose name sorts > that value
  • gte: Only emit sublevels whose name sorts &gte; that value
  • lt: Only emit sublevels whose name sorts < that value
  • lte: Only emit sublevels whose name sorts &lte; that value

Installation

With npm do:

npm install level-sublevel-stream
