hipsterDB

the webscaliest database that you have probably never heard of

hipsterDB is the best way to make your web application hipster without draping your server in flannel and taping mustache hair to your motherboard.

hipsterDB is a key/value store that only returns data as long as it isn't mainstream. The more often that you access a key the more mainstream it becomes. After data has gone mainstream you will have to wait for it to go out of style before using it again.

Get/Build

  1. hipsterDB is written in go, so make sure you have go setup.
  2. go get github.com/robmerrell/hipsterdb.git
  3. pull on your skinny jeans, don your thick-rimmed glasses and run hipsterDB

Use

hipsterDB uses a RESTful interface to upsert, get, and delete data.

upsert

create or update the key keyname with the value in the post data.

$ curl --data "value=thevalue" "localhost:9999/keyname"
created keyname

get

get the value stored in keyname. If the key has been accessed so much that it is considered mainstream an error will be returned.

$ curl "localhost:9999/keyname"
Sorry, this item has gone mainstream

delete

delete the key from the database

$ curl -X DELETE "localhost:9999/keyname"
deleted keyname

Limitations

hipsterDB is limited in pretty much every way imaginable. Don't use this in any real life scenario. Really. Don't.
