Bedquilt

BedquiltDB is a A JSON document-store built on PostgreSQL.

CircleCI

Releases

Release packages for BedquiltDB can be found on pgxn.

Goals

  • Borrow some of the good ideas and positive attributes of json object-stores and bring them to PostgreSQL
  • Harness the new jsonb functionality of PostgreSQL and wrap it in a nice programmatic API that is consistent across languages
  • Make use of SQL strong-points, such as schema constraints and table joins
  • Build a tool which is actually useful for developers

Documentation

Project documnetation hosted at Read The Docs.

To build documentation, install the mkdocs utility and run:

$ make docs

Examples

This extension provides the core functionality of BedquiltDB, and can be used from ordinary SQL queries, though it is recommended to use one of the driver libraries for you favourite programming language instead.

-- Insert two documents into the 'people' collection.
select bq_insert(
    'people',
    '{"_id": "sarah@example.com",
      "name": "Sarah",
      "likes": ["icecream", "code"]}'
);
select bq_insert(
    'people',
    '{"name": "Mike",
      "likes": ["code", "rabbits"]}'
);


-- Find a single document,
-- where the "name" field is the string value "Mike".
select bq_find_one(
    'people',
    '{"name":  "Mike"}'
);


-- Find all documents in the 'people' collection
select bq_find('people', '{}');


-- Find all people who like icecream
select bq_find('people', '{"likes": ["icecream"]}');


-- Find a single document by its "_id" field.
-- This query hits the primary key index on the _id field
select bq_find_one_by_id('people', 'sarah@example.com');


-- Create an empty collection
select bq_create_collection('things');


-- Get a list of existing collections
select bq_list_collections();

Drivers

BedquiltDB is intended to be used with client libraries (aka Drivers), such as:

Installation instructions and documentation for each driver can be found on the respective driver repositories.

BedquiltDB can also be used directly through SQL queries: select bq_find('users', '{...}').

Prerequisites

  • PostgreSQL >= 9.5
  • PL/pgSQL
  • PL/Python3u
  • The pgcrypto extension

Development prerequisites

  • python >=2.7
  • psycopg2 python library (pip install pyscopg2)
  • a local installation of PostgreSQL, with pgxs
  • mkdocs, for building documentation
  • gnu make

Installation

From a pre-built package (recommended)

To install BedquiltDB on your PostgreSQL server, follow the instructions here:

http://bedquiltdb.readthedocs.org/en/latest/guide/installation/

From source

If you would prefer to install from source, first clone this repositroy:

$ git clone https://github.com/BedquiltDB/bedquilt-core.git
$ cd bedquilt-core

Run the following to build the extension and install it to the local database:

$ sudo make install

Run this to build to a zip file:

$ make dist

Then, on the postgres server:

CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS pgcrypto;
CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS plpython3u;
CREATE EXTENSION bedquilt;

Test out the bedquilt extension by running a simple find operation:

select bq_find('stuff', '{}');

Tests

Run make test to run the test suite. Requires a bedquilt_test database that the current user owns.
