Quick.db is an open-sourced package meant to provide an easy way for beginners, and people of all levels to access & manage a database. All data is stored persistently, and comes with various extra features.

  • Persistent storage w/ no setup (Data doesn't disappear through restarts)
  • Beginner Friendly
  • Discord Support
  • Multiple tables support
  • and more!


All data in quick.db is stored persistently in a database. Here is an example of setting an object in the database, then fetching parts & the full object.

const db = require('quick.db');

// Setting an object in the database:
db.set('userInfo', { difficulty: 'Easy' })
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy' }

// Pushing an element to an array (that doesn't exist yet) in an object:
db.push('userInfo.items', 'Sword')
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword'] }

// Adding to a number (that doesn't exist yet) in an object:
db.add('userInfo.balance', 500)
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword'], balance: 500 }

// Repeating previous examples:
db.push('userInfo.items', 'Watch')
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword', 'Watch'], balance: 500 }
db.add('userInfo.balance', 500)
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword', 'Watch'], balance: 1000 }

// Fetching individual properties
db.get('userInfo.balance') // -> 1000
db.get('userInfo.items') // ['Sword', 'Watch']
