Muffler.js

JSON objects storage for fast prototyping, sitting on top of Github's gist.

muffler

Muffler is the ideal database for prototyping web services which require a document-based storage. No need for setting up any infra, pay for any service nor learn any new technology. Just plug Muffler.js in and start storing and retrieving json blobs from/in the clouds.

Muffler.js uses Github's gist to store the data. For now, all the data must be publicly available.

If the data storage requirements are loose enough, Muffler.js can be also used in production.

Features

  • JSON objects storage
  • No backend required
  • HTTPS
  • CRUD API
    • create()
    • get()
    • update()
    • delete()
  • Backend and frontend integration

Get it running

npm install muffler

API

databaseIndex(databaseId, cb)

Lists all documents in a database

const muffler = require('muffler');

muffler.databaseIndex(
  'databaseId', (err, res) => {
    if(err) return console.log(err);
    console.log(res);
});

create(databaseId, newDoc, authToken, cb)

Creates a document in a database

const muffler = require('muffler');

const newContent = 'this is the new content';
const authToken = ' fa249990930b19bef4949f8af1d36db70a91123'
muffler.update(
  'userAccount', '274bff0b1fb7a8f1f130cf1de266d111', newContent, authToken, 
  (err, res) => {
    if(err) return console.log(err);
    console.log(`New document created with content ${newContent}`);
});

get(databaseId, documentId, cb)

Gets a document from database

const muffler = require('muffler');

muffler.get('274bff0b1fb7a8f1f130cf1de266d111', 'document.json', (err, res) => {
  if(err) return console.log(err);
  console.log(res);
}); 

update(accountId, objectId, contents, authToken, cb)

Updates a document from a database. If the document does not exist, created it.

const muffler = require('muffler');

const updateContent = 'this is the new content';
const authToken = ' fa249990930b19bef4949f8af1d36db70a91123'
muffler.update(
  'userAccount', '274bff0b1fb7a8f1f130cf1de266d111', updateContent, authToken, 
  (err, res) => {
    if(err) return console.log(err);
    console.log(`Updated with ${newContent}`);
});

delete(accountId, objectId, authToken)

Deletes a document from a database

const muffler = require('muffler');

const authToken = ' fa249990930b19bef4949f8af1d36db70a91123'
muffler.delete('userAccount', '274bff0b1fb7a8f1f130cf1de266d111', authToken, 
  (err, res) => {
    if(err) return console.log(err);
    console.log('object deleted');
});

Caveats

There is no way to ensure atomicity of transactions.

The document is the finer granularity for edit/update. This means that at this point, when a field changes the whole blob needs to be updated.

Security: When using Muffler.js in the frontend, do not forget you are exposing the authentication token to the world. Only expose the authentication token when create/update/delete is necessary. Obfuscate the code when keeping auhtentication token in the browser, but bear in mind this is no silver bullet. Important: if using the access token on the browser, create a token authorized to modify only gist documents.

Use in production at your own responsability.
