Usage

pairs(obj)

Turn a javascript JSON object, and generate an array of unique pairs that represent every possible pair of adjacent properties in the object tree.

Given a json object: (eg. from a package.json)

{
  "name": "pairs",
  "version": "0.0.1",
  "description": "Turn a JSON object into a list of pairs. Useful for indexing.",
  "main": "index.js",
  "scripts": {
    "test": "node_modules/.bin/mocha"
  },
  "repository": {
    "type": "git",
    "url": "https://github.com/eugeneware/pairs.git"
  },
  "keywords": [
    "pairs",
    "index",
    "indexing",
    "levelup",
    "leveldb",
    "indexer",
    "query",
    "querying",
    "mongodb",
    "search"

  }
}
var pairs = require('pairs');
var pkg = require('package.json'); // the file above
var p = pairs(pkg);
console.log(p);

Which will print out:

pairs.index(key, value, emit)

An indexer function that can be used with subindex to generate indexes using the pairs function for every json object stored in a levelup/leveldb database.

Example Usage:

var levelQuery = require('level-queryengine'),
    jsonqqueryEngine = require('jsonquery-engine'),
    pairs = require('pairs'),
    levelup = require('levelup'),
    db = levelQuery(levelup('my-db'));

db.query.use(jsonqueryEngine());
db.ensureIndex('*', 'pairs', pairs.index);

db.batch(makeSomeData(), function (err) {
  db.query({ $and: [ { tags: 'tag1' }, { num: { $lt: 100 } } ] })
    .on('data', console.log);
});
