LevelDB Logo

Fast & simple storage - a Node.js-style LevelDB wrapper

Build Status


This is a convenience package that bundles the current release of LevelUP and LevelDOWN and exposes LevelUP on its export.

Use this package to avoid having to explicitly install LevelDOWN when you just want plain old LevelDB from LevelUP.

var level = require('level')

// 1) Create our database, supply location and options.
//    This will create or open the underlying LevelDB store.
var db = level('./mydb')

// 2) put a key & value
db.put('name', 'Level', function (err) {
  if (err) return console.log('Ooops!', err) // some kind of I/O error

  // 3) fetch by key
  db.get('name', function (err, value) {
    if (err) return console.log('Ooops!', err) // likely the key was not found

    // ta da!
    console.log('name=' + value)

See LevelUP and LevelDOWN for more details.
