Synopsis

EventVat is an evented in-process key/value store with an API like that of Redis. It's event based, which means that when a method is called that affects the data, corresponding events will be raised. It supports 5 data types, Strings, Numbers, Booleans, Arrays and Hashes.

Motivation

  • A datastore for small, volitile working sets
  • For processes who do not share data, it reduces unnecessary trips across the process boundary.
  • Portability, works in the browser and on the server.
  • Write to any storage end-point (such as local browser storage, a filesystem or couchdb).

Installation

$npm install eventvat

Usage

Each new instance of EventVat is a hash. There are lots of convenient methods attached to each new instance.

events

EventVat uses EventEmitter2. Listeners can attached to an EventVat object. An EventVat object can emit and event and a listener will respond. An event has three characteristics, the event name, a listener and an associated data key or wildcard.

  var vat = EventVat();

  vat.on('get foo', function(key, value) {

    console.log('`' + key + '` has the value: `' + value + '`');
  });

  vat.set('foo', 'hello, world');
  vat.get('foo');
