## Features

High-level, plugin-bound Ocean DB functions. You should implement a plugin class extending this module to connect with Ocean DB.

## Quick-start

Abstract interface for all persistence layer plugins.
Expects the following to be defined by the subclass:

* type - A string denoting the type of plugin (e.g. BigchainDB).
* write - Write an object in OceanDB
* read - Read the registry for a provided id
* update - Update an object in OceanDB
* delete - Delete the registry for a provided id
* list - List the elements saved in OceanDB

Once you have your plugin, the way to use it is the following:

You have to provide a configuration with the following information:


enabled=true # In order to enable or not the plugin
module=bigchaindb # You can use one the plugins already created. Currently we have mongodb and bigchaindb.
module.path= # You can specify the location of your custom plugin.
db.hostname=localhost # Address of your persistence.
db.port=9985 # Port of yout persistence database.

# In order to use SSL, configure below options.
db.ssl=true # If *true*, connections will be made using HTTPS, else using HTTP
db.verify_certs=false # If *true*, CA certificate will be verified
db.ca_cert_path= # If verifyCerts is *true*, then path to the CA cert should be provided here
db.client_key= # If db server needs client verification, then provide path to your client key
db.client_cert_path= # If db server needs client verification, then provide path to your client cert

# If you choose bigchaindb you have to provide this:
secret= # A secret that serves as a seed.
db.namespace=namespace # Namespace that you are going to use in bigchaindb
db.app_id= # App id of your bigchaindb application.
db.app_key= # App key of your bigchaindb application.

# If you choose mongodb you have to provide this:
db.username=travis # If you are using authentication, mongodb username.
db.password=test # If you are using authentication, mongodb password. # Mongodb database name
db.collection=col # Mongodb collection name

# If you choose elastic-search you have to provide this:
db.username=elastic # If you are using authentication, elasticsearch username.
db.password=changeme # If you are using authentication, elasticsearch password.
db.index=oceandb # Elasticsearch index name

## Environment variables

When you want to instantiate an Oceandb plugin you can provide the next environment variables:

- **$CONFIG_PATH** -> If you provide the config path Oceandb is going to run using this config values.
- **$MODULE** -> If you provide the module, you are going to select one of the modules.

## Plugins availables

At the moment we have developed two plugins:

* Bigchaindb (
* Mongodb (

## How to develop a plugin

To create a plugin you have to create a class called Plugin extending AbstractPlugin.

You could find an example in

## Code style

The information about code style in python is documented in this two links [python-developer-guide](
and [python-style-guide](

## Testing

Automatic tests are setup via Travis, executing `tox`.
Our test use pytest framework.

## New Version

The `` script helps to bump the project version. You can execute the script using as first argument {major|minor|patch} to bump accordingly the version.
