ZangoDB is a MongoDB-like interface for HTML5 IndexedDB that supports most of the familiar filtering, projection, sorting, updating and aggregation features of MongoDB, for usage in the web browser.


let db = new zango.Db('mydb', { people: ['age'] });
let people = db.collection('people');

let docs = [
    { name: 'Frank', age: 20 },
    { name: 'Thomas', age: 33 },
    { name: 'Todd', age: 33 },
    { name: 'John', age: 28 },
    { name: 'Peter', age: 33 },
    { name: 'George', age: 28 }

people.insert(docs).then(() => {
    return people.find({
        name: { $ne: 'John' },
        age: { $gt: 20 }
        _id: { age: '$age' },
        count: { $sum: 1 }
        _id: 0,
        age: '$_id.age'
        age: -1
    }).forEach(doc => console.log('doc:', doc));
}).catch(error => console.error(error));

Which outputs:

doc: { count: 3, age: 33 }
doc: { count: 1, age: 28 }


ZangoDB is available as an npm package, and the web-browser build can be downloaded here or embedded:

<script src=""></script>

For certain web browsers, such as Internet Explorer, the Babel polyfill is required and must be loaded before ZangoDB:

<script src=""></script>

ZangoDB then can be accessed using the global variable zango.

To install ZangoDB for usage with node:

$ npm install zangodb

In both cases, an implementation of IndexedDB is required. For environments without a native implementation of IndexedDB, Fake IndexedDB can be used:

global.indexedDB = require('fake-indexeddb');
global.IDBKeyRange = require('fake-indexeddb/lib/FDBKeyRange');
