Overview

Package dynamodb provides the client and types for making API requests to Amazon DynamoDB.

Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. DynamoDB lets you offload the administrative burdens of operating and scaling a distributed database, so that you don't have to worry about hardware provisioning, setup and configuration, replication, software patching, or cluster scaling.

With DynamoDB, you can create database tables that can store and retrieve any amount of data, and serve any level of request traffic. You can scale up or scale down your tables' throughput capacity without downtime or performance degradation, and use the AWS Management Console to monitor resource utilization and performance metrics.

DynamoDB automatically spreads the data and traffic for your tables over a sufficient number of servers to handle your throughput and storage requirements, while maintaining consistent and fast performance. All of your data is stored on solid state disks (SSDs) and automatically replicated across multiple Availability Zones in an AWS region, providing built-in high availability and data durability.

See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/goto/WebAPI/dynamodb-2012-08-10 for more information on this service.

Using the Client

To contact Amazon DynamoDB with the SDK use the New function to create a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service. These clients are safe to use concurrently.

See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/

See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/#Config

See the Amazon DynamoDB client DynamoDB for more information on creating client for this service. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/dynamodb/#New

AttributeValue Marshaling and Unmarshaling Helpers

Utility helpers to marshal and unmarshal AttributeValue to and from Go types can be found in the dynamodbattribute sub package. This package provides specialized functions for the common ways of working with AttributeValues. Such as map[string]*AttributeValue, []*AttributeValue, and directly with *AttributeValue. This is helpful for marshaling Go types for API operations such as PutItem, and unmarshaling Query and Scan APIs' responses.

See the dynamodbattribute package documentation for more information. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/dynamodb/dynamodbattribute/

Expression Builders

The expression package provides utility types and functions to build DynamoDB expression for type safe construction of API ExpressionAttributeNames, and ExpressionAttribute Values.

The package represents the various DynamoDB Expressions as structs named accordingly. For example, ConditionBuilder represents a DynamoDB Condition Expression, an UpdateBuilder represents a DynamoDB Update Expression, and so on.

See the expression package documentation for more information. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/dynamodb/expression/
