How to use #

final path = Directory.current.path + '/my.db';

// create database instance and open
final db = DocumentsDB(path);;

// insert document into database
db.insert({'name': {'first': 'Some', 'last': 'Body'}, 'age': 18, 'active': true);
db.insert({'name': {'first': 'Someone', 'last': 'Else'}, 'age': 25, 'active': false);

// update documents
db.update({Op.gte: {'age': 80}}, {'active': false});

// remove documents
db.remove({'active': false});

// search documents in database
var result = await db.find({'active': true, 'name.first': 'Some'});

// 'tidy up' the db file

// close db
await db.close();

Methods #

  • Future<DocumentsDB>[bool tidy = true]) opens database
  • Future<void> db.tidy() 'tidy up' the .db file
  • Future<void> db.close() closes database (should be awaited to ensure all queries have been executed)

find #

  • Future<List<Map>> db.find(Map query) List with all matched documents
  • Future<Map> db.first(Map query) first matched document
  • Future<Map> db.last(Map query) last matched document

insert #

  • Future<ObjectId> db.insert(Map document) insert single document
  • Future<List<ObjectId>> db.insertMany(List<Map> documents) insert many documents

update #

  • Future<int> db.update(Map query, Map changes, [bool replace = false]) update documents that mach query with changes (optionally replace whole document)

remove #

  • Future<int> db.remove(Map query) remove documents that match query

Query #

// Match fields in subdocuments
{Op.gte: {
    'birthday.year': 18

// or-operator
    'active': true,
    Op.inArray: {'group': ['admin', 'moderator']}

// not equal to
{Op.not: {'active': false}}

NOTE Querying arrays is not supportet yet.

  • removeWhere, remove value where callback return true
  • clear: clear list/Map
  • slice: sublist List
  • sort : sort List
{Op.set: {'': 'value'}} // set entry['path']['to']['key'] = 'value' (path will be created if not exists)
{Op.max: {'': 200}} // set value 200 if value is greater than 200
{Op.min: {'': 200}} // set value 200 if value is smaller than 200
{Op.increment: {'': -5}} // increment value by negative 5
{Op.multiply: {'': 2}} // multiply value by 2
{Op.unset: {'': true}} // unset key/value at entry['path']['to']['key'] if exists
{Op.rename: {'': 'new_key'}} // new value will be at entry['path']['to']['new_key']

  'age': RegExp('[18-20]'), {'duration': 500},
}, {
  Op.max: {'stats.score': 100},
  Op.increment: {'stats.level': -5},

Examples #

// query
var result = db.find({
    'active': true,
    Op.or: {
        Op.inList: {'state': ['Florida', 'Virginia', 'New Jersey']},
        Op.gte: {'age': 30},

// same as
var match = (result['active'] == true && (['Florida', 'Virginia', 'New Jersey'].contains(result['state']) || result['age'] >= 30));
