Details

Uses duckdb::duckdb() as backend. nodbi creates or uses a DuckDB table, with columns _id and json created and used by package nodbi, applying SQL functions as per https://duckdb.org/docs/extensions/json to the json column. Each row in the table represents a JSON document. Any root-level _id is extracted from the document(s) and used for column _id, otherwise a UUID is created as _id. The table is indexed on _id. For a benchmark, see https://github.com/ropensci/nodbi#benchmark.

Examples

if (FALSE) {
con <- src_duckdb()
print(con)
}
