Suck up a data stream and store it in LevelDB.


Suckit exposes LevelDB (via level-store) over HTTP. It's really that simple.

Super Quickstart

In one terminal:

➜  suckit git:(master) mkdir data
➜  suckit git:(master) suckit 3000 ./data
["2013-05-16T02:53:59.622Z","INFO","opening bucket",{"session":"1368672813532-41998","name":"my-bucket"}]
["2013-05-16T02:53:59.624Z","INFO","asked to write to file",{"session":"1368672813532-41998","request":"1368672839619-66909","bucket":"my-bucket","file":"my-file","append":true}]
["2013-05-16T02:53:59.712Z","INFO","beginning to write to file",{"session":"1368672813532-41998","request":"1368672839619-66909","bucket":"my-bucket","file":"my-file","append":true,"newFile":true}]
["2013-05-16T02:53:59.716Z","INFO","finished writing to file",{"session":"1368672813532-41998","request":"1368672839619-66909","bucket":"my-bucket","file":"my-file","append":true,"newFile":true}]

In another:

➜  suckit git:(master) curl -v -X POST -d 'this is some content!'
