Project description

A flat file database for json objects.

Author: Gunther Cox
License: BSD
Description: # jsondb

[![Build Status][travis-image]][travis-build]
[![PyPI version](](

This is a utility for managing content in a database which stores
content in JSON format.

## Installation

This package can be installed from [PyPi]( by running:

pip install jsondatabase

Note, the package name and the import name are different.
Import the package using `import jsondb`.

## Usage

from jsondb.db import Database
db = Database("mydata.db")

The database has an attribute which works similar to
[jQuery's `data`][jquery-data] attribute.

# Getting all data
db = Database("mydata.db")

# Getting a stored value
db = Database("mydata.db")

**It is important to note that a key will be created regardless of whether it
exists as long as a value is provided.** The database has the same functionality
as a dictionary.

# Setting a value
db = Database("mydata.db")"user_count", value=241)

# Passing in a dictionary value
db = Database("mydata.db")
data = {
"user_id": 234565,
"user_name": "AwesomeUserName",
"is_moderator": True,

# Deleting a value
db = Database("mydata.db")

The database also supports a dictionary-like syntax for retrieving, setting, and
removing values.

db = Database("mydata.db")

# Retrieving a value
value = db["key"]

# Setting a value
db["key"] = value

# Removing a key
del db["key"]

# Checking if a key exists
"key" in db

## Performance
If performance is an issue with large databases then the `python-cjson` module
can be installed. jsondb will automatically detect this and use cjson instead.
