API Reference

The full, boring, unadultered enmap docs.

Kind: global class Extends: Map

new Enmap(iterable, options)

Initializes a new Enmap, with options.

Param

Type

Description

iterable

iterable | string

If iterable data, only valid in non-persistent enmaps. If this parameter is a string, it is assumed to be the enmap's name, which is a shorthand for adding a name in the options and making the enmap persistent.

options

Object

Additional options for the enmap. See https://enmap.evie.codes/usage#enmap-options for details.

options.name

string

The name of the enmap. Represents its table name in sqlite. If present, the enmap is persistent. If no name is given, the enmap is memory-only and is not saved in the database. As a shorthand, you may use a string for the name instead of the options (see example).

options.fetchAll

boolean

Defaults to true. When enabled, will automatically fetch any key that's requested using get, getProp, etc. This is a "syncroneous" operation, which means it doesn't need any of this promise or callback use.

options.dataDir

string

Defaults to ./data. Determines where the sqlite files will be stored. Can be relative (to your project root) or absolute on the disk. Windows users , remember to escape your backslashes!

options.cloneLevel

string

Defaults to deep. Determines how objects and arrays are treated when inserting and retrieving from the database. See https://enmap.evie.codes/usage#enmap-options for more details on this option.

options.polling

boolean

defaults to false. Determines whether Enmap will attempt to retrieve changes from the database on a regular interval. This means that if another Enmap in another process modifies a value, this change will be reflected in ALL enmaps using the polling feature.

options.pollingInterval

string

defaults to 1000, polling every second. Delay in milliseconds to poll new data from the database. The shorter the interval, the more CPU is used, so it's best not to lower this. Polling takes about 350-500ms if no data is found, and time will grow with more changes fetched. In my tests, 15 rows took a little more than 1 second, every second.

options.ensureProps

boolean

defaults to false. If enabled and the value in the enmap is an object, using ensure() will also ensure that every property present in the default object will be added to the value, if it's absent. See ensure API reference for more information.

options.strictType

boolean

defaults to false. If enabled, locks the enmap to the type of the first value written to it (such as Number or String or Object). Do not enable this option if your enmap contains different types of value or the enmap will fail to load.

options.typeLock

string

Only used if strictType is enabled. Defines an initial type for every value entered in the enmap. If no value is provided, the first value written to enmap will determine its typeLock. Must be a valid JS Primitive name, such as String, Number, Object, Array.

enmap.count ⇒ integer

Retrieves the number of rows in the database for this enmap, even if they aren't fetched.

Kind: instance property of Enmap Returns: integer - The number of rows in the database.

enmap.indexes ⇒ array.

Retrieves all the indexes (keys) in the database for this enmap, even if they aren't fetched.

Kind: instance property of Enmap Returns: array. - Array of all indexes (keys) in the enmap, cached or not.

enmap.autonum ⇒ number

Generates an automatic numerical key for inserting a new value. This is a "weak" method, it ensures the value isn't duplicated, but does not guarantee it's sequential (if a value is deleted, another can take its place). Useful for logging, but not much else.

Kind: instance property of Enmap Returns: number - The generated key number. Example

enmap.set(enmap.autonum, "This is a new value");

enmap.set(key, val, path) ⇒ Enmap

Sets a value in Enmap.

Kind: instance method of Enmap Returns: Enmap - The enmap.

Description

key

string | number

Required. The key of the element to add to The Enmap.

val

*

Required. The value of the element to add to The Enmap. If the Enmap is persistent this value MUST be stringifiable as JSON.

path

string

null

Optional. The path to the property to modify inside the value object or array. Can be a path with dot notation, such as "prop1.subprop2.subprop3"

Example

// Direct Value Examples
enmap.set('simplevalue', 'this is a string');
enmap.set('isEnmapGreat', true);
enmap.set('TheAnswer', 42);
enmap.set('IhazObjects', { color: 'black', action: 'paint', desire: true });
enmap.set('ArraysToo', [1, "two", "tree", "foor"])
// Settings Properties
enmap.set('IhazObjects', 'color', 'blue'); //modified previous object
enmap.set('ArraysToo', 2, 'three'); // changes "tree" to "three" in array.

enmap.get(key, path) ⇒ *

Retrieves a key from the enmap. If fetchAll is false, returns a promise.

});

enmap.close() ⇒ Promise.
