libkv

GoDoc Build Status Coverage Status

libkv provides a Go native library to store metadata.

The goal of libkv is to abstract common store operations for multiple Key/Value backends and offer the same experience no matter which one of the backend you want to use.

For example, you can use it to store your metadata or for service discovery to register machines and endpoints inside your cluster.

You can also easily implement a generic Leader Election on top of it (see the swarm/leadership package).

As of now, libkv offers support for Consul, Etcd and Zookeeper.

Example of usage

Create a new store and use Put/Get
package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"time"
	
	"github.com/docker/libkv"
	"github.com/docker/libkv/store"
	log "github.com/Sirupsen/logrus"
)

func main() {
	client := "localhost:8500"

	// Initialize a new store with consul
	kv, err := libkv.NewStore(
		store.CONSUL, // or "consul"
		[]string{client},
		&store.Config{
			ConnectionTimeout: 10*time.Second,
		},
	)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Cannot create store consul")
	}

	key := "foo"
	err = kv.Put(key, []byte("bar"), nil)
	if err != nil {
		log.Error("Error trying to put value at key `", key, "`")
	}

	pair, err := kv.Get(key)
	if err != nil {
		log.Error("Error trying accessing value at key `", key, "`")
	}

	log.Info("value: ", string(pair.Value))
}

You can find other usage examples for libkv under the docker/swarm or docker/libnetwork repositories.

Details

You should expect the same experience for basic operations like Get/Put, etc.

However calls like WatchTree may return different events (or number of events) depending on the backend (for now, Etcd and Consul will likely return more events than Zookeeper that you should triage properly).

Create a new storage backend

A new storage backend should include those calls:

type Store interface {
	Put(key string, value []byte, options *WriteOptions) error
	Get(key string) (*KVPair, error)
	Delete(key string) error
	Exists(key string) (bool, error)
	Watch(key string, stopCh <-chan struct{}) (<-chan *KVPair, error)
	WatchTree(directory string, stopCh <-chan struct{}) (<-chan []*KVPair, error)
	NewLock(key string, options *LockOptions) (Locker, error)
	List(directory string) ([]*KVPair, error)
	DeleteTree(directory string) error
	AtomicPut(key string, value []byte, previous *KVPair, options *WriteOptions) (bool, *KVPair, error)
	AtomicDelete(key string, previous *KVPair) (bool, error)
	Close()
}

You can get inspiration from existing backends to create a new one. This interface could be subject to changes to improve the experience of using the library and contributing to a new backend.

##Roadmap

  • Make the API nicer to use (using options)
  • Provide more options (consistency for example)
  • Improve performance (remove extras Get/List operations)
  • Add more exhaustive tests
  • New backends?

Overview

Package libkv provides a Go native library to store metadata.

The goal of libkv is to abstract common store operations for multiple Key/Value backends and offer the same experience no matter which one of the backend you want to use.

For example, you can use it to store your metadata or for service discovery to register machines and endpoints inside your cluster.

As of now, `libkv` offers support for `Consul`, `Etcd` and `Zookeeper`.

## Example of usage

### Create a new store and use Put/Get

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"time"

	"github.com/docker/libkv"
	"github.com/docker/libkv/store"
	log "github.com/Sirupsen/logrus"
)

func main() {
	client := "localhost:8500"

	// Initialize a new store with consul
	kv, err := libkv.NewStore(
		store.CONSUL, // or "consul"
		[]string{client},
		&store.Config{
			ConnectionTimeout: 10*time.Second,
		},
	)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Cannot create store consul")
	}

	key := "foo"
	err = kv.Put(key, []byte("bar"), nil)
	if err != nil {
		log.Error("Error trying to put value at key `", key, "`")
	}

	pair, err := kv.Get(key)
	if err != nil {
		log.Error("Error trying accessing value at key `", key, "`")
	}

	log.Info("value: ", string(pair.Value))
}
