Lightweight object mapper for Riak.
Riik doesn't support everything you would exepct from a full ORM. There are no validations, no callbacks, and no error handling, as the primary motivation was providing an extremely thin abstraction over RObject allowing you to map an objects serialized fields into keys. The benefits come from being able to work with a lightweight abstraction without dependencies on larger, external gems, such as activesupport and activemodel.
If you're building an entire site with Riak as the primary data store, you should be looking at Ripple.
If you're looking at building a gem or Ruby application that needs to write serialized objects directly to Riak without any overhead, look no further.
To define a class:
class Person include Riik::Document property :first_name property :last_name end
p = Person.new(:first_name => 'Fat', :last_name => 'Mike') p.save # => true p.destroy # => true Person.find(p.key) # => p
