= rufus-tokyo

ruby-ffi based interface to Tokyo Cabinet and Tokyo Tyrant.

The 'abstract' and the 'table' API are covered for now.


== installation

sudo gem install rufus-tokyo

(see after 'usage' for how to install Tokyo Cabinet (and Tyrant) if required)


== Rufus::Edo

Note : Rufus::Tokyo focuses on leveraging Hirabayashi-san's C libraries via ruby-ffi, but the gem rufus-tokyo also contains Rufus::Edo which wraps the Tokyo Cabinet/Tyrant author's [native] C bindings :

== usage

hereafter TC references Tokyo Cabinet, while TT references Tokyo Tyrant.

the rdoc is at http://rufus.rubyforge.org/rufus-tokyo/

ruby 1.8.6
ruby 1.9.1p0
jruby 1.1.6
jruby 1.2.0

TC 1.4.9 and TT 1.1.16
TC 1.4.10 and TT 1.1.17 (adds the offset arg to query.limit)

=== TC Abstract API

http://tokyocabinet.sourceforge.net/spex-en.html#tcadbapi

to create a hash (file named 'data.tch')

require 'rubygems'
require 'rufus/tokyo'

db = Rufus::Tokyo::Cabinet.new('data.tch')

db['nada'] = 'surf'

p db['nada'] # => 'surf'
p db['lost'] # => nil

5000.times { |i| db[i.to_s] = "x" }

p db.inject { |r, (k, v)| k } # => 4999

db.close


=== TC Table API

http://tokyocabinet.sourceforge.net/spex-en.html#tctdbapi

require 'rubygems'
require 'rufus/tokyo'

t = Rufus::Tokyo::Table.new('table.tct')

t['pk0'] = { 'name' => 'alfred', 'age' => '22' }
t['pk1'] = { 'name' => 'bob', 'age' => '18' }
t['pk2'] = { 'name' => 'charly', 'age' => '45' }
t['pk3'] = { 'name' => 'doug', 'age' => '77' }
t['pk4'] = { 'name' => 'ephrem', 'age' => '32' }

p t.query { |q|
q.add_condition 'age', :numge, '32'
q.order_by 'age'
}
# => [ :pk=>"pk4", "age"=>"32",
# :pk=>"pk2", "age"=>"45" ]

t.close

Note that the Tokyo Cabinet Table API does support transactions :

p t.size
# => 0

t.transaction do
t['pk0'] = { 'name' => 'alfred', 'age' => '22' }
t['pk1'] = { 'name' => 'bob', 'age' => '18' }
t.abort
end

p t.size
# => 0


=== TT remote db

http://tokyocabinet.sourceforge.net/tyrantdoc/

to start a ttserver (backed by a hash), on the command line

ttserver -port 45001 data.tch


then, in Ruby :

require 'rubygems'
require 'rufus/tokyo/tyrant'

db = Rufus::Tokyo::Tyrant.new('localhost', 45001)

db['nada'] = 'surf'

p db['nada'] # => 'surf'
p db['lost'] # => nil

db.close


Rufus::Tokyo::Tyrant instances have a #stat method :

puts db.stat.inject('') { |s, (k, v)| s << "#k => #v\n" }
# =>
# pid => 7566
# loadavg => 0.398438
# size => 528736
# rnum => 0
# time => 1234764065.305923
# sid => 898521513
# type => hash
# bigend => 0
# ru_sys => 3.398698
# version => 1.1.15
# ru_user => 2.155215
# ru_real => 3218.451152
# fd => 7


Note that it's also OK to make a Tokyo Tyrant server listen on a unix socket :

ttserver -host /tmp/ttsocket -port 0 data.tch

and then :

require 'rubygems'
require 'rufus/tokyo/tyrant'
db = Rufus::Tokyo::Tyrant.new('/tmp/ttsocket')
db['a'] = 'alpha'
db.close


=== TT remote table

to start a ttserver (backed by a table), on the command line :

ttserver -port 45002 data.tct


then, in Ruby, much like a local table :

require 'rubygems'
require 'rufus/tokyo/tyrant'

t = Rufus::Tokyo::TyrantTable.new('localhost', 45002)

t['pk0'] = { 'name' => 'alfred', 'age' => '22' }
t['pk1'] = { 'name' => 'bob', 'age' => '18' }
t['pk2'] = { 'name' => 'charly', 'age' => '45' }
t['pk3'] = { 'name' => 'doug', 'age' => '77' }
t['pk4'] = { 'name' => 'ephrem', 'age' => '32' }

p t.query { |q|
q.add_condition 'age', :numge, '32'
q.order_by 'age'
}
# => [ :pk=>"pk4", "age"=>"32",
# :pk=>"pk2", "age"=>"45" ]

t.close


Rufus::Tokyo::TyrantTable instances have a #stat method :

puts t.stat.inject('') { |s, (k, v)| s << "#k => #v\n" }
# =>
# pid => 7569
# loadavg => 0.295410
# size => 935792
# rnum => 0
# time => 1234764228.942014
# sid => 1027604232
# type => table
# bigend => 0
# ru_sys => 5.966750
# version => 1.1.15
# ru_user => 2.601947
# ru_real => 3382.084479
# fd => 10


Note that it's also OK to make a Tokyo Tyrant server listen on a unix socket :

ttserver -host /tmp/tttsocket -port 0 data.tct

and then :

require 'rubygems'
require 'rufus/tokyo/tyrant'
t = Rufus::Tokyo::TyrantTable.new('/tmp/tttsocket')
t['customer0'] = { 'name' => 'Heike no Kyomori', 'age' => '75' }
t.close
