const NotFetched int = iota

NotFetched is a special type that signals whether or not the value of an Entry has been fetched or not. This is needed because datastore implementations get to decide whether Query returns values or only keys. nil is not a good signal, as real values may be nil.

type Entry

type Entry struct {
	Key   string // cant be ds.Key because circular imports ...!!!
	Value interface{}

Entry is a query result entry.

func ResultEntriesFrom

func ResultEntriesFrom(keys []string, vals []interface{}) []Entry

type Filter

type Filter interface {
	// Filter returns whether an entry passes the filter
	Filter(e Entry) bool

Filter is an object that tests ResultEntries

type FilterKeyCompare

type FilterKeyCompare struct {
	Op  Op
	Key string

func (FilterKeyCompare) Filter

func (f FilterKeyCompare) Filter(e Entry) bool

type FilterKeyPrefix

type FilterKeyPrefix struct {
	Prefix string

func (FilterKeyPrefix) Filter

func (f FilterKeyPrefix) Filter(e Entry) bool

type FilterValueCompare

type FilterValueCompare struct {
	Op          Op
	Value       interface{}
	TypedFilter Filter

FilterValueCompare is used to signal to datastores they should apply internal comparisons. unfortunately, there is no way to apply comparisons* to interface{} types in Go, so if the datastore doesnt have a special way to handle these comparisons, you must provided the TypedFilter to actually do filtering.

[*] other than == and !=, which use reflect.DeepEqual.

func (FilterValueCompare) Filter

func (f FilterValueCompare) Filter(e Entry) bool

type Op

type Op string

Op is a comparison operator

type Order

type Order interface {

	// Sort sorts the Entry slice according to
	// the Order criteria.

Order is an object used to order objects

type OrderByKey

type OrderByKey struct{}


func (OrderByKey) Sort

func (o OrderByKey) Sort(res []Entry)

type OrderByKeyDescending

type OrderByKeyDescending struct{}


func (OrderByKeyDescending) Sort

func (o OrderByKeyDescending) Sort(res []Entry)

type OrderByValue

type OrderByValue struct {
	TypedOrder Order

OrderByValue is used to signal to datastores they should apply internal orderings. unfortunately, there is no way to apply order comparisons to interface{} types in Go, so if the datastore doesnt have a special way to handle these comparisons, you must provide an Order implementation that casts to the correct type.

func (OrderByValue) Sort

func (o OrderByValue) Sort(res []Entry)

type OrderByValueDescending

type OrderByValueDescending struct {
	TypedOrder Order

OrderByValueDescending is used to signal to datastores they should apply internal orderings. unfortunately, there is no way to apply order comparisons to interface{} types in Go, so if the datastore doesnt have a special way to handle these comparisons, you are SOL.

func (OrderByValueDescending) Sort

func (o OrderByValueDescending) Sort(res []Entry)

type Query

type Query struct {
	Prefix   string   // namespaces the query to results whose keys have Prefix
	Filters  []Filter // filter results. apply sequentially
	Orders   []Order  // order results. apply sequentially
	Limit    int      // maximum number of results
	Offset   int      // skip given number of results
	KeysOnly bool     // return only keys.

Query represents storage for any key-value pair.


queries are supported across datastores.
Cheap on top of relational dbs, and expensive otherwise.
Pick the right tool for the job!

In addition to the key-value store get and set semantics, datastore provides an interface to retrieve multiple records at a time through the use of queries. The datastore Query model gleans a common set of operations performed when querying. To avoid pasting here years of database research, let’s summarize the operations datastore supports.

Query Operations:

  • namespace - scope the query, usually by object type
  • filters - select a subset of values by applying constraints
  • orders - sort the results by applying sort conditions
  • limit - impose a numeric limit on the number of results
  • offset - skip a number of results (for efficient pagination)

datastore combines these operations into a simple Query class that allows applications to define their constraints in a simple, generic, way without introducing datastore specific calls, languages, etc.

Of course, different datastores provide relational query support across a wide spectrum, from full support in traditional databases to none at all in most key-value stores. Datastore aims to provide a common, simple interface for the sake of application evolution over time and keeping large code bases free of tool-specific code. It would be ridiculous to claim to support high- performance queries on architectures that obviously do not. Instead, datastore provides the interface, ideally translating queries to their native form (e.g. into SQL for MySQL).

However, on the wrong datastore, queries can potentially incur the high cost of performing the aforemantioned query operations on the data set directly in Go. It is the client’s responsibility to select the right tool for the job: pick a data storage solution that fits the application’s needs now, and wrap it with a datastore implementation. As the needs change, swap out datastore implementations to support your new use cases. Some applications, particularly in early development stages, can afford to incurr the cost of queries on non- relational databases (e.g. using a FSDatastore and not worry about a database at all). When it comes time to switch the tool for performance, updating the application code can be as simple as swapping the datastore in one place, not all over the application code base. This gain in engineering time, both at initial development and during later iterations, can significantly offset the cost of the layer of abstraction.

type Result

type Result struct {

	Error error

Result is a special entry that includes an error, so that the client may be warned about internal errors.

type ResultBuilder

type ResultBuilder struct {
	Query   Query
	Process goprocess.Process
	Output  chan Result

ResultBuilder is what implementors use to construct results Implementors of datastores and their clients must respect the Process of the Request:

  • clients must call r.Process().Close() on an early exit, so implementations can reclaim resources.
  • if the Entries are read to completion (channel closed), Process should be closed automatically.
  • datastores must respect <-Process.Closing(), which intermediates an early close signal from the client.

func NewResultBuilder

func NewResultBuilder(q Query) *ResultBuilder

func (*ResultBuilder) Results

func (rb *ResultBuilder) Results() Results

Results returns a Results to to this builder.

type Results

type Results interface {
	Query() Query           // the query these Results correspond to
	Next() <-chan Result    // returns a channel to wait for the next result
	Rest() ([]Entry, error) // waits till processing finishes, returns all entries at once.
	Close() error           // client may call Close to signal early exit

	// Process returns a goprocess.Process associated with these results.
	// most users will not need this function (Close is all they want),
	// but it's here in case you want to connect the results to other
	// goprocess-friendly things.
	Process() goprocess.Process

Results is a set of Query results. This is the interface for clients. Example:

qr, _ := myds.Query(q)
for r := range qr.Next() {
  if r.Error != nil {
    // handle.

  fmt.Println(r.Entry.Key, r.Entry.Value)

or, wait on all results at once:

qr, _ := myds.Query(q)
es, _ := qr.Rest()
for _, e := range es {
  	fmt.Println(e.Key, e.Value)

func NaiveQueryApply

func NaiveQueryApply(q Query, qr Results) Results

func ResultsReplaceQuery

func ResultsReplaceQuery(r Results, q Query) Results

func ResultsWithChan

func ResultsWithChan(q Query, res <-chan Result) Results
