How to use

final path = Directory.current.path + '/my.db';

// create database instance and open
final db = ObjectDB(path);
db.open();

// insert document into database
db.insert({'name': {'first': 'Some', 'last': 'Body'}, 'age': 18, 'active': true);
db.insert({'name': {'first': 'Someone', 'last': 'Else'}, 'age': 25, 'active': false);

// update documents
db.update({Op.gte: {'age': 80}}, {'active': false});

// delete documents
db.delete({'active': false});

// search documents in database
var result = await db.find({'active': true, 'name.first': 'Some'});

// 'tidy up' the db file
db.tidy();

// close db
await db.close();

Methods

  • Future<ObjectDB> db.open([bool tidy = true]) opens database
  • Future<void> db.tidy() 'tidy up' the .db file
  • Future<void> db.close() closes database (should be awaited to ensure all queries have been executed)

find

  • Future<List<Map>> db.find(Map query) List with all matched documents
  • Future<Map> db.first(Map query) first matched document
  • Future<Map> db.last(Map query) last matched document

insert

  • Future<ObjectId> db.insert(Map document) insert single document
  • Future<List<ObjectId>> db.insertMany(List<Map> documents) insert many documents

update

  • Future<int> db.update(Map query, Map changes, [bool replace = false]) update documents that mach query with changes (optionally replace whole document)

delete

  • Future<int> db.delete(Map query) delete documents that match query

Query

// Match fields in subdocuments
{Op.gte: {
    'birthday.year': 18
}}

// or-operator
{Op.or:{
    'active': true,
    Op.inArray: {'group': ['admin', 'moderator']}
}}

// not equal to
{Op.not: {'active': false}}

NOTE Querying arrays is not supportet yet.

Operators

Logical

  • and (default operator on first level)
  • or
  • not

Comparison

  • lt, lte: less than, less than or equal
  • gt, gte: greater than, greater than or equal
  • inList, notInList: value in list, value not in list

Examples

// query
var result = db.find({
    'active': true,
    Op.or: {
        Op.inList: {'state': ['Florida', 'Virginia', 'New Jersey']},
        Op.gte: {'age': 30},
    }
});

// same as
var match = (result['active'] == true && (['Florida', 'Virginia', 'New Jersey'].contains(result['state']) || result['age'] >= 30));

Todo's

  • x regex match
  • encryption
  • querying arrays
  • benchmarks
  • indexing
