What is Quick.db?

Quick.db is an easy-to-use database manager built with better-sqlite3. It's simple by design and perfect for smaller projects where you don't want to set up a separate database server or individuals who may be getting started with programming.


All data in quick.db is stored persistently in a database. Here is an example of setting an object in the database, then fetching parts & the full object.
const { QuickDB } = require("quick.db");
const db = new QuickDB(); // will make a json.sqlite in the root folder
// if you want to specify a path you can do so like this
// const db = QuickDB({ filePath: "source/to/path/test.sqlite" });
(async () => {
// self calling async function just to get async
// Setting an object in the database:
await db.set("userInfo", { difficulty: "Easy" });
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy' }
// Pushing an element to an array (that doesn't exist yet) in an object:
await db.push("userInfo.items", "Sword");
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword'] }
// Adding to a number (that doesn't exist yet) in an object:
await db.add("userInfo.balance", 500);
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword'], balance: 500 }
// Repeating previous examples:
await db.push("userInfo.items", "Watch");
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword', 'Watch'], balance: 500 }
await db.add("userInfo.balance", 500);
// -> { difficulty: 'Easy', items: ['Sword', 'Watch'], balance: 1000 }
// Fetching individual properties
await db.get("userInfo.balance"); // -> 1000
await db.get("userInfo.items"); // ['Sword', 'Watch']
