The levelup library we use doesnt work in windows
is the issue for the library, its also worth mentioning that @janl is working on a pure js implementation of leveldb that shouldnt be a problem on windows
@janl have you got anything to share on that yet? Sounds like a lot of fun.
There is a new project that it working at getting leveldb working on windows natively. So no boost headers needed. Its also making c# bindings.
@Ragg this is probably going to help a fair bit.
"Windows port for LevelDB based on Boost libraries."
Sadly it still needs Boost. I'll look into it though, we may just have to ship some of Boost in the end but I'm pretty sure we have other options too.
Seems like levelDown is the best option for this?
No! Jut keep using LevelUP and you'll get windows support in the next release, no need to change on your end.
Should have the release out in a week (or two) that will give you Windows.
thanks Ragg. This will be amazing
ah awesome, yeh I read through the README too quickly, I didnt realise DOWN was just the bindings
yay, dep has landed, all should be good
FYI, see requirements for node-gyp on Windows for information on what you'll need to install in order to have npm compile properly for you: https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp#installation
