A Object–relational mapping layer for different Databases Engines

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import lambertOrm from '';



A promise-based Object–Relational Mapping layer for various databases.

This allows easy access to a database much like like accessing an object.

The library design facilitates exchanging the underlying database engine without changing your application code.

Also it only get's/set's the necessary data for the operations and not the whole table unlike quick.db.


npm i lambert-orm
# or "yarn add lambert-orm"


ES5 import


or ES6 import

import "lambert-orm";


Choose a database engine: MongoDatabase

At the moment there is only an implementation for MongoDB available, however I will add others. You can also implement your own database class and submit a pull request.

Every Database has an .init() method whose execution must be awaited before using the database.

class Database {
    init   (): Promise<any>;
    destroy(): Promise<any>;
    data     : DatastoreInterface; // ES6 Proxy Object

To use the database, access the .data property and specify the path. e.g.: (the path for this example is The below operations can then be called on the path:


get(projection?: Projection): Promise<any>; // returns a promise with the value for this path
first()                     : Promise<any>; // returns a promise with the first entry
last()                      : Promise<any>; // returns a promise with the last entry
random()                    : Promise<any>; // returns a promise with a random entry 
delete()                    : Promise<boolean>; // deletes the value for this path
set(value: any)             : Promise<boolean>; // sets the value for this path
exists()                    : Promise<boolean>; // checks if a value for this path exists
push(value: any)            : Promise<boolean>; // pushes the value into the array for this path

All operations are asynchronous and return a promise which have to be awaited. The return value of type Promise<boolean> indicates a successful operation.


The .get(projection?: Projection) function can optionally accept a projection parameter.

A Projection is a Key-Value Object of booleans that indicates whether these properties should be received.

type Projection = {
    [index: string]: boolean;

var projection = { id: true, name: true}

For example, a database with a boards table that contains board objects like: { id: number, name: string, members: [], posts: [] } and only ids and names should be accessed.

The projection parameters can be used to specify multiple but not all properties to be retrieved e.g:{ id: true, name: true});

Filter sub arrays

Filters can be used to get a specific card in the example above, by calling a property with .property(filter) when accessing a path.

A filter can be an object or a function which will be called for every entry in an array and can be specified for each property in a path.

Example:{id: 1}).get(){id: 1}).posts({id: 0}).comments({id: 1}).get()

Full Example

const { MongoDatabase } = require("lambert-orm");

const db: Database = new MongoDatabase();

db.init().then(async () => {
    let success = await{ id: 0, roles: [] });
    if (!success) throw new Error("couldn't insert new user");

    let user = await{ id: 0 }).get();
    success = await{ id: 0 }).roles.push({ type: "admin", name: "hey", permissions: 2 });
    if (!success) throw new Error("couldn't add role for user");

    success = await{ id: 1 }).delete();
    if (!success) throw new Error("couldn't add role for user");

    console.log(await{ id: true}));
