a client for replit db

Project description

PyPI version Run on Repl.it Downloads

ReplitDB Client

A Pythonic Client for use with the repl.it DataBase. Created by Codemonkey51. Documentation by IreTheKID.

Installation

There are many different methods of installing replitdb to your enviornment. pip is recommended as it is the most stable.

  • Pip: pip install replitdb
  • Easy Install: easy_install replitdb
  • Git: $ git clone https://github.com/codemonkey51/replit-db-client replitdb
  • Replit UPM: python3 -m poetry init --no-interaction; python3 -m poetry add replitdb

Getting Started

Once you have the package installed, simply import it and define the client to get started:

import replitdb

client = replitdb.Client()

Using the Client

The replitDB client can be used to write, delete, and edit keys/values within your database. Let's say you have your dictionary ready, like so:

import replitdb

client = replitdb.Client()
data = {
	"users" : {
		"name1" : {...},
		"name2" : {...}
	},
	"posts" : {
		"post1" : {...},
		"post2" : {...}
	},
	"codes" : [
		12345,
		67890,
	],
	"sessionID" : "837379829-2"
}

You can write to the DB with either:

for key, value in data.items():
	client.set(key=value) 

or:

client.set_dict(data)

Editor's Note: Using the for loop will set 'key' equal to the variable value. Using client.set_dict({key:value}) is recommended instead.

After adding items to your DB, you may want to remove some. There are different methods to deleting values from the DB:

client.remove("codes") # Deletes the item the key "codes"
client.remove_list(["users", "posts"]) # Deletes a list of items

client.wipe # Wipes the whole DataBase clean

Client Functions

Adding:

  • client.set(name=value, name2=value2, ...) Adds an item with it's name and value.
  • client.set_dict({key:val}) Adds an item for every key/value pair in the dict.

Removing:

  • client.remove(name) Removes an item by its name.
  • client.remove_list([key]) Removes a list of items by name.
  • client.wipe Clears DB. (Caution: Cannot Be Undone)

Viewing:

  • client.view(name) Returns the value of the name (tries to detect if it is a str or ddict/list and returns accordingly).
  • client.view_multiple(name, name2, ...) Returns a dictionary with each item being the name/value pair found (tries to detect if it is a str or ddict/list and returns accordingly).
  • client.view_multiple_list([key]) Returns a dictionary with each item being the key/value pair found in the list (tries to detect if it is a str or ddict/list and returns accordingly).
  • client.all Returns all key names.
  • client.all_dict Returns the entire DB as a dictionary.

Viewing internals (async only) (recommended not to call directly)

  • client._view_str(name) Returns the value of the name as a string.
  • client._view_str_multiple(name, name2, ...) Returns a dictionary with each item being the name/value pair as a string found.
  • client._view_str_multiple_list([key]) Returns a dictionary with each item being the key/value pair found as a string in the list.
  • client._view_json(name) Returns the value of the name json decoded.
  • client._view_json_multiple(name, name2, ...) Returns a dictionary with each item being the name/value pair json decoded found json decoded.
  • client._view_json_multiple_list([key]) Returns a dictionary with each item being the key/value pair json decoded found in the list.

Searching:

  • client.list(prefix) Returns lists of all keys found that start with the prefix.
  • client.list_multiple(prefix, prefix2, ...) Returns dict with each item being the prefix/key pair for all keys found that start each prefix.
  • client.list_multiple_list([prefix]) Returns dict with each item being the prefix/key pair for all keys found that start each prefix in the list passed.

Async Capabilities

You can use asynchronous functions by defining your client with the AsyncClient() class. All functions will become coroutines that need to be awaited. Here are two examples:

import asyncio
import replitdb

client = AsyncClient()
loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

data = {
	...
}

loop.run_until_complete(client.set_dict(data))
import asyncio
import replitdb

client = AsyncClient()

data = {
	...
} 

async def foo():
	await client.set_dict(data)

asyncio.run(foo())

Known Issues

  • Repl.it UPM can't auto-detect package import.
  • Defualt client does not work in asynchronous enviornment.

Deprecated Functions

  • client.add(name) is now client.set(name)
  • client.add_dict({key:val}) is now client.set_dict({key:val})
