database abstraction

Database setup

this software uses databank package to abstract out the data storage for the system. Any databank driver should work. Couchbase, MongoDB and Redis are probably the best bets for production servers, but the disk or even memory drivers can work for testing.

If you’re confused, just use the MongoDB one, databank-mongodb.

You can find other drivers like so:

npm search databank

One tricky bit is that the driver you use has to be available to the databank package. There are two ways to make that work.

First, you can install globally. For example:

npm install -g databank-mongodb

Use this if you installed the package globally.

Second, you can install in the databank directory.

npm install databank-mongodb

Note that you also need to install and configure your database server.
