WhoaDB(!)

Not actually a DB: But read/write JSON objects to/from a flat file using this if you want.

Build
Status

This is a component I extracted from a test REST server used if you're working on a front end app that RESTfully stores data and you want to click around for a little bit without firing up an actual backend.

Starting

npm install whoadb
WhoaDB = require 'whoadb'

persistFile = '/tmp/whoadb.json'

db = new WhoaDB(persistFile)

Finding

record1 = { id: 'fff', name:  "food", _collection: "edibles" }
record2 = { id: 'ggg', name:  "more food", _collection: "edibles" }

db.save(record1)
db.save(record2)

db.all('edibles')

# => [ record1, record2 ]

db.find('edibles', 'fff')

# => record1

Create & Update & Destroy

record = { name:  "food", _collection: "edibles" }

db.save(record)

# record object is assigned an id

record.name = "non-food"

db.save(record)

# record updated

db.destroy(record)

Records without the _collection key

If a record doesn't have a _collection key, it'll be added to the undefined collection.

record1 = { id: 'fff', name:  "food" }

db.save(record1)

db.all(undefined)

# => [ record1 ]

db.find(undefined, 'fff')

# => record1
