Convenience modules that bundle a store with levelup and encoding-down.

Name Compatibility Dependencies Description
level levelup dependencies Bundle for leveldown.
Main entry point for beginners.
level-mem levelup dependencies Bundle for memdown.
level-rocksdb levelup dependencies Bundle for rocksdb.
level-browserify levelup dependencies Bundle for level-js and leveldown.
Will soon be superseded by the level bundle.
level-hyper levelup dependencies Bundle for leveldown-hyper.


Name Dependencies Description
levelup dependencies The glue that holds everything together.
Use this when you need a custom or swappable store.
abstract-leveldown dependencies An abstract prototype matching the leveldown API.
Use this to implement your own store.

Modules that implement abstract-leveldown to wrap another abstract-leveldown. This is the preferred extension point.

Name Compatibility Dependencies Description
encoding-down abstract-leveldown dependencies Provides key/value encoding.
@adorsys/encrypt-down abstract-leveldown dependencies Provides encryption for values.
deferred-leveldown abstract-leveldown dependencies Handles delayed-open. Built into levelup.
subleveldown abstract-leveldown
dependencies Sublevels implemented using leveldowns.
cachedown abstract-leveldown dependencies LRU cache.


Complete Node.js databases built with Level.

Name Dependencies Description
dat dependencies Lets you build streaming data pipelines that can be shared and replicated by others.
pouchdb dependencies PouchDB allows you to store and query data offline and then sync with CouchDB when online. For Node, browser and mobile.
couchup dependencies A CouchDB implementation on top of levelup.
firedup dependencies A node.js implementation of firebase based on levelup.
len dependencies Len is a resource booking database using LevelDB for storage. Useful for calendar and gantt chart apps and for questions like 'can a customer book this resource starting X and ending Y'.
lem dependencies Lem is a telemetry storage database using LevelDB. Keys are indexed by timestamp and you can read values in-between 2 points in time.
levelgraph dependencies A Graph database built on top of levelup with pattern-matching and join support.
linvodb3 dependencies Persistent database on top of levelup for Node.js/NW.js with MongoDB-style queries, Mongoose-like models and a map/reduce system.
plumbdb dependencies HTTP request handlers for building web services on top of LevelDB. Not in active development.
rxdb dependencies Event-driven database based on pouchdb. Optimized for reactive programming with observables. Events and state is automatically shared between multiple browser tabs. Queries are defined by the mongoDB mango-standard.
pushdb dependencies A programmable database with document storage and unique indexing capabilities.
search-index dependencies A persistent full text search engine for browser and Node.js.
tacodb dependencies A responsive, Node.js-style database ideal for realtime data. Highly modular and adaptable, allowing extension with the Level ecosystem.
timestreamdb dependencies A full-featured timeseries database on top of LevelDB. Includes a library for streaming statistical operations on timeseries data including joins, aggregates, filters, and map-like operations.
nanosql dependencies A small (10Kb) RDBMS abstraction on top of levelup that also runs in the browser with undo/redo support, immutable objects and IndexedDB persistence.
vertical dependencies LevelDB distributed, Server and Client!
flash-store dependencies FlashStore is a Key-Value persistent storage with easy to use ES6 Map-like API(both Async and Sync support), powered by LevelDB and TypeScript.
level-fact-base dependencies Store immutable facts and query them with datalog.


Name Dependencies Description
level-2pc dependencies A two-phase commit protocol.
level-couch-sync dependencies Replicate from CouchDB to LevelDB.
level-master dependencies Master-Slave replication for levelup.
level-merkle dependencies Uses merkle-trees to replicate data sets. Data must be sets and currently, deletes are not supported.
level-replicate dependencies Master-master replication with levelup. Implements scuttlebutt style handshake, syncs data, then replicates real time changes.
level-replicator dependencies Master-master replication. Same goal as level-replicate but different approach.

levelup-async-iterator dependencies Expose iterator() with Symbol.asyncIterator.
cluster-levelup dependencies Wrap any levelup instance for cluster usage among multiple processes.
level-ttl dependencies Add a ttl (time-to-live) option to levelup for put() and batch().
Note: suffers from race issues.


Name Dependencies Description
level-iterator-stream dependencies Turn an abstract-leveldown iterator into a readable stream.
Included in levelup.
level-concat-iterator dependencies Concatenate items from an iterator into an array.
level-codec dependencies Encode keys, values and ltgte options. Used in encoding-down.
