    What the hack is sstore?

    serverless-store is how you store tiny things at serverless function runtime,inspired by conf.

    When to use it?

    When you have a tiny piese of data(an expiring access-token, for example), sstore stores it for you.

    Inaccurately, sstore cloud be an alternative to a database (for storing tiny data).

    Better yet, sstore won't block any code execution and there are no network requests until you use the sstore.close method.

    You can also use it as a function runtime's environment variables setter(beacause we store thing to there, but only CloudBase is supported) right now!

    How to use it?

    declare namespace SstoreAPI {
      export function getGlEnv(key: string): any
      export function setGlEnv(key: string, value: any): any
      export function delGlEnv(key: string): void
      export function get(key: string): any
      export function set(key: string, value: any): any
      export function del(key: string): void
      export function clear(): void
      export function close(): void
    const sstore = require('@beetcb/sstore')
    exports.main = () => {
      // If `secret` is undefind, set it
      console.log(sstore.get('secret') || sstore.set('secret', 'xxx 🕊'))
      // Code logic is done, starts storing,


    • get(key): get key's value
    • set(key, value): set key using value
    • del(key): delete key's value
    • clear(): delete all the key value pairs
    • getGlEnv(key)[CloudBase]: get global environment variable key's value
    • setGlEnv(key, value)[CloudBase]: set global environment variable key's value
    • delGlEnv(key)[CloudBase]: delete global environment variable key's value
    • close(): This is where the sstore really starts to store, you must call it after all of your code logic is done, which will avoid blocking code execution

    How it works?

    Under the hood, when a serverless function is about to end, you need to call sstore.close manually which does these things:

    • On platforms that do not support(or hard to implement) setting environment variables via api(e.g. Vercel): sstore stores data to /tmp/conf/conf.json, please do not rely on it, it's non-persistent

    • On platforms that do support setting environment variables via api(e.g. CloudBase): sstore starts to update the function's environment variables for next time invoking, you can rely on it, it will be there next time you invoke that function
