A performant and lightweight NOSQL Database

pip install tasho==0.0.3



A fast and portable python NoSQL database. Sucessor to KoDB.

Using the DB

To initalize or open a database, it's as straightforward as calling tasho.Database.new or tasho.Database.open.

>>> import tasho
>>> database = tasho.Database.new("AnimeDatabase")  # Creates a new database.
>>> database = tasho.Database.open("AnimeDatabase") # Opens a database.

Tables can be called through tasho.Database.get_table(table_name) or through tasho.Database.table.table_name

>>> tbl_anime = database.table.Anime 			# These all return 
>>> tbl_anime = database.get_table("Anime")		# the same Table
>>> tbl_anime = database.table['Anime']			# object.
>>> tbl_anime
<TashoDBTable>: Anime | Chunks: 1

Note: Tables are set to auto commit by default. When doing bulk inserts, make sure to set Table.auto_commit to False and running Table.commit() manually afterwards.

Data Storage

>>> tbl_anime.insert('001', {'title': 'Nichijou', 'episodes': 24, 'rating': 99})

This stores the data with 001 as the Document ID. Document IDs can either be String or Int. Since Table.auto_commit has been set to true, running Table.commit() is no longer needed.


There are multiple ways of accessing data.

# The document can be accessed through a regular get method
>>> show = tbl_shows.get('001')
>>> show
<TashoDBDocument:001> Origin: Shows
>>> show.dict
{'title': 'Nichijou', 'episodes': 24, 'rating': 99, '_id': '001'}
# Table.query allows you to pass a callable to filter the data.
>>> tbl_shows.query(lambda id, data: data['rating'] > 50)
[<TashoDBDocument:001> Origin: Shows]
# Table.query_one works the same as Table.query but stops at the first match.
>>> tbl_shows.query_one(lambda id, data: data['rating'] > 50)
<TashoDBDocument:001> Origin: Shows

Table.get(id) returns a Document object that contains the data.

Manipulating Data

Manipulating data is as easy as changing the values in the Document object.

>>> show
<TashoDBDocument:001> Origin: Shows
>>> show.dict
{'title': 'Nichijou', 'episodes': 24, 'rating': 99, '_id': '001'}
>>> show.rating = 98
>>> show['title'] = 'Nichibros'
>>> show.save()
>>> show.dict
{'title': 'Nichibros', 'episodes': 24, 'rating': 98, '_id': '001'}

Document deletion can also be done with Document.delete().

>>> list(tbl_shows.items())
[('001', {'title': 'Nichijou', 'episodes': 24, 'rating': 98})]
>>> show.delete()
>>> list(tbl_shows.items())

Note: Document objects behaves almost the same way as dictionaries. Document.pop, Document.update and Document.get works the same way.
