Database JS APIs

Database JS APIs

The following JS API is primarily used by Fliplet.DataSources and it’s meant to be used as a very low-level library to read and query JSON data from a file.

Opening a local JSON file as a database

Fliplet.Database('dataSources.db').then(function (db) {
  return db.dataSource(2).find();
}).then(function (results) {


The JSON file must declare keys for each collection (or dataSource):

    "1": [ { "id": 123, "name": "John" }, { "id": 456, "name": "Emma" } ],
    "2": [ { "id": 789, "name": "Alex" }, { "id": 912, "name": "Nick" } ]

The db object exposes a dataSource() public method which requires a valid top-level key from the JSON.

The latter method returns an object with two public methods:

  • find(query) Returns an array of results. Query using Sift.js operators.
  • findById(id) Returns a single record by its ID
