multilevel-http

Access a leveldb instance from multiple processes via HTTP.

A limitation of LevelDB is that only one process is allowed access to the underlying data. multilevel-http exports a LevelDB instance over http.

Installation

npm install multilevel-http

API

Server:

var multilevel = require('multilevel')
// db = levelup instance or path to db
var server = multilevel.server(db, options)
server.listen(5000)

Client:

var multilevel = require('multilevel')
var db = multilevel.client('http://localhost:5000/')
// now you have the complete levelUP api!
// ...except for events, for now

CLI

$ sudo npm install -g multilevel-http
$ multilevel-http -p 5000 path/to.db
