I like key-value datastores. They are really convenient to do simple operations like storing config values et cetera which do not really need the SQL or equivalent query language. The key-value stores have mostly similar API to perform basic CRUD operations.
The idea is to build a universal command-line tool that is similar in essence to Rclone, for interacting with the key-value stores. Then I’ll be able to use key-value stores from command-line and integrate it with my dotfiles among other things.
Currently, this project is still in the early phase of developments and no packages are built. That being said, Go toolchain offers a very convenient to install the package.
go install argc.in/[email protected]
Note: This requires Go toolchain to be installed to compile and install the package only.
With Kay, I want to build a framework to load and use key-value stores. Database drivers can dynamically hook into the framework and expose the databases. A common command-line frontend should be able to consume the framework and expose the operations as simple sub-commands.
For this design, I took inspiration from the standard library
[database/sql](<http://pkg.go.dev/database/sql>), Telegraf and Rclone projects.
