This is my first Node.js module. Currently, the module is in the very early stages of development. Implementation of the API is ongoing. Take note: this module is NOT production ready.

Basic usage

var magpie = require('magpie'),
    db = magpie('./db');

var theOatmealBook = {
    title: "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
    author: "TheOatmeal.com"
};

db.create(theOatmealBook, function(error, record) {
    // Returns:
    // {
    //   "id": "7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f",
    //   "title": "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
    //   "author": "TheOatmeal.com",
    //   "createdOn": "2013-05-10T20:30:25.342Z"
    // }
});

API

var db = magpie(path string [, options]);

db.create(data object [, callback]);

Magpie is happy to generate IDs for you via node-uuid's uuid.v4() method. If you'd like to supply your own IDs, go for it. Just include an id property on your data object.

db.get([id string | query object, ] callback);

Get all records:

db.get(function(error, records) {
    // Returns:
    [{
      "id": "7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f",
      "title": "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
      "author": "TheOatmeal.com",
      "createdOn": "2013-05-10T20:30:25.342Z"
    }, {
      ...
    }]
});

Get a record by ID:

db.get("7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f", function(error, record) {
    // Returns:
    {
      "id": "7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f",
      "title": "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
      "author": "TheOatmeal.com",
      "createdOn": "2013-05-10T20:30:25.342Z"
    }
});

Get records by author using a query object:

var query = {
    author: "TheOatmeal.com"
};
db.get(query, function(error, record) {
    // Returns:
    {
        "id": "7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f",
        "title": "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
        "author": "TheOatmeal.com",
        "createdOn": "2013-05-10T20:30:25.342Z"
    }
});

db.update(data object [, callback]);

var theOatmealBook = {
    "id": "7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f",
    "title": "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
    "author": "TheOatmeal.com",
    "isbn10": "1449410243",
    "createdOn": "2013-05-10T20:30:25.342Z"
}
db.update(theOatmealBook, function(error, record) {
    // Returns
    {
        "id": "7f5d532b-8bfe-42fd-a1d3-8272e8aa7e3f",
        "title": "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You",
        "author": "TheOatmeal.com",
        "isbn10": "1449410243",
        "createdOn": "2013-05-10T20:30:25.342Z",
        "updatedOn": "2013-05-11T12:45:50.700Z"
    }
});

db.delete(id string | query object [, callback]);

db.exists(id string, callback);

db.getById(id string, callback);

db.getAll(callback);

db.getByQuery(query object, callback);
