indexeddb-export-import - JSON export/import for IndexedDB

IndexedDB is a client-side database API available in modern browsers and https://electron.atom.io/. During development and testing of an web / desktop app which uses IndexedDB, it can be helpful to save, load, or clear the contents of an IndexedDB database - this package provides that capability.

You can use indexeddb-export-import in a Node.js environment imported as a module (eg. for use with an Electron app). You may also use it in a browser environment by simply including via a <script> tag.

Usage

You will need an open IDBDatabase connection.

The following example exports a database, clears all object stores, then re-imports the database. It uses Dexie.js to initiate the database, but this is not required.

const Dexie = require('Dexie');
const IDBExportImport = require('indexeddb-export-import');

const db = new Dexie('MyDB');
db.version(1).stores({
  things: 'id++, thing_name, thing_description',
});
db.open().then(function() {
  const idbDatabase = db.backendDB(); // get native IDBDatabase object from Dexie wrapper

  // export to JSON, clear database, and import from JSON
  IDBExportImport.exportToJsonString(idbDatabase, function(err, jsonString) {
    if (err) {
      console.error(err);
    } else {
      console.log('Exported as JSON: ' + jsonString);
      IDBExportImport.clearDatabase(idbDatabase, function(err) {
        if (!err) { // cleared data successfully
          IDBExportImport.importFromJsonString(idbDatabase, jsonString, function(err) {
            if (!err) {
              console.log('Imported data successfully');
            }
          });
        }
      });
    }
  });
}).catch(function(e) {
  console.error('Could not connect. ' + e);
});
