go get


  • Extendable — Easy to edit code and add custom backends
  • Small database — Smaller than most database setups
  • Simple — Easy to understand and use
  • Standardized — Uses standard Go encoding packages as dependencies
  • Tables — Supports tables, although entirely optional
  • MIT license


These features are not guaranteed to be implemented, but they are certainly welcome.

  • JSON backend
  • Add check for conflicting database names
  • Ability to toggle synchronous writes on or off independently
  • Transaction Locking
  • Split database map into subfiles so that InMem: false will read from disk
  • Implement caching behavior for InMem false to keep the last X read values in memory

How to use?

Using MelopeponDB is simple. Here is a basic example for the Gob backend. To use the JSON backend, simply call OpenJsonDB instead. Multiple backend types can be used at the same time within the same project.

Labels for databases must be unique.


Do not use the same labels for different databases with differing backends.

package main

import (
    melo ""

var pdb melo.DBFilter = melo.Query().DB("DatabaseOfPeople").Table("family")

type familyPerson struct {
    Name string
    Age *int

func main() {

	defer melo.CloseDB("DatabaseOfPeople")

	melo.OpenGobDB("DatabaseOfPeople", "people_db", false)

	grandma := familyPerson{
		Name: "Ruby",
		Age:  nil,

	pdb.Update("grandma", &grandma)

	var grandpa familyPerson

	pdb.Get("grandma", &grandpa)

	grandpa.Name = "Johnny"

	pdb.Update("grandpa", &grandpa)
