Catmandu::Store - Namespace for packages that can make data persistent


    # From the command line
    $ catmandu import JSON into MongoDB --database_name 'bibliography' < data.json
    $ catmandu export MongoDB --database_name 'bibliography' to YAML
    $ catmandu export MongoDB --database_name 'bibliography' --query '{"PublicationYear": "1937"}'
    $ catmandu count  MongoDB --database_name 'bibliography' --query '{"PublicationYear": "1937"}'
    # From Perl
    use Catmandu;
    my $store = Catmandu->store('MongoDB',database_name => 'bibliography');
    my $obj1 = $store->bag->add({ name => 'Patrick' });
    printf "obj1 stored as %s\n" , $obj1->{_id};
    # Force an id in the store
    my $obj2 = $store->bag->add({ _id => 'test123' , name => 'Nicolas' });
    my $obj3 = $store->bag->get('test123');
    # Some stores can be searched
    my $hits = $store->bag->search(query => 'name:Patrick');


A Catmandu::Store is a stub for Perl packages that can store data into databases or search engines. The database as a whole is called a 'store'. Databases also have compartments (e.g. tables) called Catmandu::Bag-s. Some stores can be searched using Catmandu::Searchable methods.


Specify plugins that will be applied to every bag in the store.
    my $store = Catmandu::Store::MyDB->new(default_plugins => ['Datestamps']);
The name of the bag to use if no explicit bag is given. Default is 'data'.
    my $store = Catmandu::Store::MyDB->new(default_bag => 'stuff');
    # this will return the stuff bag
    my $bag = $store->bag;
Specify configuration for individual bags.
    my $store = Catmandu::Store::Hash->new(
        bags => {stuff => {plugins => ['Datestamps']}});
    # this bag will use the L<Catmandu::Plugin::Datestamps> role
    # this bag won't
An optional custom class to use for bags. Default is "Bag" in the store's namespace. This class should consume the Catmandu::Bag role.
    # this will use the Catmandu::Store::MyDB::Bag class for bags
    # this will use MyBag
    Catmandu::Store::MyDB->new(bag_class => 'MyBag')
Use a custom prefix to mark the reserved or special keys that the store uses. By default an underscore gets prependend. The only special key in a normal store is '_id'. Catmandu::Plugin::Versioning will also use '_version'. Other plugins or stores may add their own special keys.
    # this store will use the my_id key to hold id's
    Catmandu::Store::MyDB->new(key_prefix => 'my_')
Define a custom key to hold id's for all bags of this store. See "key_prefix" for the default value. Also aliased as "id_field". Note that this can also be overriden on a per bag basis.



Create or retieve a bag with name $name. Returns a Catmandu::Bag.


Helper method that applies "key_prefix" to the $key given.


Return the current logger. Can be used when creating your own Stores.
    package Catmandu::Store::Hash;
    sub generator {
        my ($self) = @_;
        $self->log->debug("generating record");
See also: Catmandu for activating the logger in your main code.
