Dat Module Wishlist #5
This issue is to discuss ideas for dat modules that would be awesome to have. If you want to write a module leave a comment to notify others that you are working on it (preferably also leave a link to the repo).
I'll keep this post updated to link to all of the modules (until we have too many to fit here).
To learn more about dat modules check out the Importing data guide
If a module doesn't have a link w/ it it means nobody is working on it yet
Read about Import Methods to determine which type of module should be used for each case.
(not in any particular order)
Up for grabs
Not sure if this fits here, but I just created vinyl-dat to read/write dat records in a gulp workflow. It's basically just a way to convert dat records into vinyl files. I think it still needs some work and possibly a better way to just let dat do conversions on contents (like choosing csv, json, etc...)

So this is a pouchdb want originally but applies to dat.
Leveldown can be tricky to get working on all platforms and while pre-built ones ones are helpful there are always going to be weirder platform combinations.
It would be great to have a pure js leveldown backend (for node) that was not restricted to memory.
Being able to install dat or pouchdb with no c deps would be super useful.
Medea seems the best of what is out there but has a requirement that keys be kept in memory which combined with the node.js hard 2GB mem limit means that there are hard limits on the datasets you'd be able to put into it.
So really the thing that would be super helpful is a pure js nodejs db with spill to disk.
Has many of the basic one not been covered? :) As seen here https://github.com/rvagg/node-levelup/wiki/Modules#storage
Or am I am wrong? I am a little confused because how is this dat related, isn't is more of Leveldb related, that is needs more adapters?
Or is there a good example on a plugin there is written?
Ooo I like, thanks

Please feel free to get started with your perspective, but I will only then be able to respond meaningfully.
Yeah, then I could transform Discourse' API into RSS :) Or we just plug dat
